LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The Los Angeles Clippers acquired guard Derek Anderson and forward Johnny Newman from the Cleveland Cavaliers today in exchange for forward Lamond Murray.

The Cavaliers had been unable to work out a long-term contract extension with Anderson, setting the stage for a trade.

``Derek is a talented competitor and will bring extra athleticism to our team,'' Clippers Vice President Elgin Baylor said in a statement.

Terms were not disclosed but The Orange County Register reported today that Murray would get a seven-year, $25 million deal.

Anderson, 25, was entering the final year of his contract, and the 6-foot-6 guard was reportedly seeking a seven-year, $60 million extension from the Cavs. An explosive leaper and finisher, he averaged 10.8 points for the Cavs last season but has missed 28 games the past two seasons with knee injuries.

Murray, 26, a free agent who also negotiated with San Antonio, had played his entire five-year career with the Clippers. Used primarily at small forward, he averaged 12.2 points last year after losing his starting job 13 games into the season. He also can play shooting guard.

The 35-year-old Newman, a 13-year NBA veteran, had one year remaining on his contract. He averaged 6.1 points in 50 games last season.
