Yaroslav Korolev is headed to the Clippers. Their No. 1 draft pick has been freed from his contract with a Russian club, paving the way for the teenager to join the Clippers for the start of training camp, sources familiar with the situation said Monday. Joe Safety, Clipper vice president of communications, would not confirm that Korolev's status had been resolved but said the team now hoped the 18-year-old, 6-foot-9 forward could join them for the 2005-06 season.

Free-agent forward Yaroslav Korolev will report to the Clippers' training camp in Santa Barbara next week, ending speculation that the team's 2005 lottery pick would report with another team or play in Russia this season, a source said Wednesday. Korolev, the 12th overall pick two years ago, tried out with the Phoenix Suns and other NBA teams in recent weeks but has returned to working out at the Clippers' El Segundo training facility.

Yaroslav Korolev will return to the Clippers. The former lottery pick, who became a free agent when the team declined to exercise his contract option, agreed to terms Friday on a two-year deal. "The situation with the contract is not final yet, but we're working on it and I'm still with the Clippers," Korolev said. "I'm happy I'm going to be here."

Confident that they can fill their more immediate needs next month in free agency, the Clippers basically bought on spec Tuesday night when they made Russian teenager Yaroslav Korolev the 12th pick in the NBA draft. Within minutes of taking him they hinted that Korolev, a 6-foot-9 small forward who turned 18 only last month, might stay overseas for another year. "His offensive skills are very wide and varied, with a very big upside," Coach Mike Dunleavy said.

Although pleased with the progress of Yaroslav Korolev, the Clippers plan to ease in the rookie forward. Of course, the 18-year-old Russian could alter their plans. Coach Mike Dunleavy left the door ajar for Korolev's role to increase based on his performance in the exhibition season, which began Wednesday night in a 95-80 victory at Staples Center. Korolev was 0 for 1 shooting with three rebounds and one assist.

Contract buyout negotiations didn't interest 18-year-old Russian forward Yaroslav Korolev, whose focus remained on the court while his representative tried to free him to join the Clippers. Korolev only wanted to know when a deal had been reached with a Russian club team that held his rights, because that's when his work could begin. "I didn't know about any of that," he said. "I just wanted to know when I could come and play." The Clippers' No.

The Clippers declined to exercise the third-year option in the contract of former first-round draft pick Yaroslav Korolev, making him an unrestricted free agent after the season, the team said Friday. General Manager Elgin Baylor, Coach Mike Dunleavy and Andy Roeser, executive vice president, decided not to pay the 19-year-old Russian $2.7 million in the 2007-08 season. Instead, the Clippers said they would attempt to re-sign the 12th overall pick in the 2005 draft at a lower price.

Clipper rookie forward Yaroslav Korolev has much to learn, but his education probably won't occur in Austin, Texas. Coach Mike Dunleavy said Thursday it was unlikely the 18-year-old Russian would be sent to the team's development league affiliate in Austin. Moreover, the Clippers might not use the development league to start the season.

Clipper Coach Mike Dunleavy and forward-center Chris Wilcox were on the same page: Wilcox's performance could be the key to a postseason berth. "If he had a great year," Dunleavy said, "we would definitely make the playoffs." Said Wilcox: "This is a big year for me. This year can make me or break me." Wilcox continued to practice with a sense of urgency Wednesday at Santa Barbara City College, the Clippers said, displaying an effort visible only in flashes during his first three seasons.
