LOS ANGELES, CA - The Los Angeles Clippers signed two first- round draft picks on Saturday - rookie forward Al-Farouq Aminu, the eighth overall selection and rookie guard Eric Bledsoe, the 18th pick.

Aminu, who played at Wake Forest, led the ACC with 19 double-doubles last season and was one of just five players in major conference college basketball to average a double-double in 2009-10. Aminu led the Demon Deacons with 15.8 points per game, 10.7 rebounds and 4.4 blocks.

Bledsoe, who was acquired in a draft day deal after he was originally selected by Oklahoma City, appeared in 37 games for Kentucky in 2009-10, averaging 11.3 points, 2.9 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game in his first and only college season.
