As of Wednesday afternoon, the LA Clippers still had two full-time roster spots open. One of those is now expected to be filled by Daniel Theis, while the last one was officially filled on Wednesday evening.
It was announced that LA's 15th roster spot will be occupied by Josh Primo, who had his two-way contract converted to a standard NBA deal. Primo will sign a two-year, $3.96 million deal with the Clippers, which is fully guaranteed for the remainder of the current season.
The other change made to the Clippers' roster was the signing of Xavier Moon to a two-way contract with the team. Moon will take Primo's place as the third and final two-way player on LA's payroll.
The Clippers now have all 15 spots on their roster filled
Many were hoping the Clippers would add another wing to finalize their roster after the departure of Nic Batum, Robert Covington, Marcus Morris and KJ Martin in the James Harden trade. But LA clearly has belief in Primo potentially becoming a rotation player.
It is important to note that the Clippers are ineligible to file for an injury exception for Mason Plumlee, given that he is expected to return before the end of the season. With that being the case, someone will have to be waived or traded in order for the Clippers to add any additional players to the roster.
It will be interesting to see whether Daniel Theis will end up replacing Mason Plumlee outright or if the two can somehow both find a place in the rotation together. If not, the Clippers will likely be active in trade talks yet again.
