The Los Angeles Clippers are set to enlist big man Dewayne Dedmon, a seasoned 10-year NBA player, into their G League affiliate, the Ontario Clippers, as per Michael A Scotto of HoopsHype.
During the previous season, Dedmon, 34, participated in 38 games for the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers, even making an appearance in an NBA playoff game with the 76ers.
Notably, the veteran center posted averages of 5.2 points and 3.5 rebounds per game, showcasing a shooting accuracy of 51.0% from the field.
Miami Heat traded Dedmon for a second-round pick last season, facilitating the subsequent acquisition of Kevin Love. This opened the door for Dedmon to become available in the summer, prompting the Clippers to make a move for him.
Dedmon’s extensive NBA journey spans ten seasons with stints at the Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Sacramento Kings, Philadelphia 76ers, and Golden State Warriors.
Over 515 regular-season games and 31 NBA playoff appearances, he holds career averages of 6.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, shooting at 52.6% from the field and 33.6% from beyond the arc.
The Clippers, currently facing an extended absence of center Mason Plumlee, anticipate Dedmon to be a valuable addition to their bench.
