The Los Angeles Clippers are set to ink a two-way contract with guard Xavier Moon, taking over the role previously occupied by wing Joshua Primo.
This change in the roster was reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic, who also mentioned that Primo’s contract has been converted to a standard one.
Primo, a 20-year-old player standing at 6-foot-6, was chosen by the Spurs as the 12th pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
However, he was released due to an investigation that found him guilty of multiple instances of indecent exposure towards women.
This led to a four-game suspension by the NBA. Despite these off-court issues, Primo displayed promise as a rookie, participating in 50 games and averaging 5.8 points and 2.3 rebounds with San Antonio.
Unfortunately, he only appeared in four games last season before being waived by the Spurs on October 28, 2022.
As for Moon, a 28-year-old, 6-foot-2 guard, he has a history with the Clippers organization.
Moon initially joined the team on a 10-day contract in December 2021, followed by two more contracts in the same season, eventually leading to a standard deal in April 2022.
He returned to the Clippers’ roster last season, signing a two-way contract in March and a training camp deal in September, only to be waived shortly before the season’s commencement.
In his 14 appearances with the Clippers, Moon has averaged 4.6 points and 2.1 assists in just over 11 minutes per game.
Much of his time has been dedicated to the Ontario Clippers of the G League, where he posted impressive stats, averaging 20.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 5.5 assists last season.
The Clippers are gearing up for their upcoming season with the addition of James Harden, acquired in a three team trade with the 76ers and Thunder just last week.
