LA Clippers Make Big Move With Previously Suspended Josh Primo

The Los Angeles Clippers have made some moves to fill out their roster, not the least of which is to sign two-way player Josh Primo to a standard NBA contract. Primo, the former No. 12 pick in the NBA Draft, hasn't played since early last season after being suddenly released by the San Antonio Spurs and subsequently suspended by the league.  

The troubled Primo, 20, has been undergoing therapy due to his situation which led to a 4-game ban, after the NBA “found that Primo engaged in inappropriate and offensive behavior by exposing himself to women”.

The Clippers apparently discussed with their female employees the situation before signing Primo to a two-way deal in September. 

The 6'6" wing can be brought along slowly with the Clips, as he'll fall into the pecking order behind Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Bones Hyland, and Norman Powell on the depth chart at his positions. 

In 54 games with the Spurs before they shockingly (at the time) released him, he was averaging 5.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists in about 20 minutes per night. 

The Clippers also signed guard Xavier Moon to a two-way deal.
