NBA Suspends Josh Primo As He Signs Contract With Western Contender

It was nearly a year ago that the San Antonio Spurs sent shockwaves through the basketball world by suddenly releasing promising young wing Josh Primo. We eventually learned that there had been multiple incidents of Primo exposing himself to women in the Spurs organization. 

The NBA has announced a four-game suspension today for Primo, for "conduct detrimental". The news comes as Primo returns to the league after a one-year absence, as the 20-year-old is signing a two-way deal with the Los Angeles Clippers.

As noted by Adrian Wojnarowski, Primo has been undergoing therapy for what the young guard/forward called struggles with mental health. He is continuing the therapy and the Clippers put him through an evaluation with specialists before deciding they were comfortable enough to bring him on board. 

Primo played just four games for the Spurs last season before his release, and 50 games in his rookie season the year before. The Clippers will likely have him playing with their G League affiliate in Ontario, California for much of the season as they try to develop him back into an NBA-ready prospect. WIf he is called up to the Clips, he'll face that four-game ban.
