The LA Clippers have made another roster move
Ahead of their game vs. the Golden State Warriors, the LA Clippers have made a minor roster move. The team has remained fluid with their final two-way spot over the last week, and have once again made a roster move with that opening. Having just recently signed Keaton Wallace to their open two-way spot, the Clippers announced on Wednesday that they have waived Wallace. Andrew Greif of the LA Times reported that Xavier Moon is expected to sign a two-way deal with the Clippers, once again filling the team’s last two-way opening.
The Clippers have now signed Nate Darling, Keaton Wallace, and Xavier Moon to their last two-way spot that was made available when Moses Brown was waived. Darling and Wallace were waived shortly after signing the deal, and it is Moon who is the latest to occupy the spot.
For those wondering why the Clippers would do this, it is not uncommon for organizations to sign their G-League players shortly before waiving them, as it offers a financial boost for the player signing the deal. The Ontario Clippers, LA’s G-League affiliate, have competed hard all year, and this is likely the organization’s way of rewarding those players with a financial boost.
A source confirmed to AllClippers that this is something organizations like the Clippers will do around this time of year, especially with players who have been loyal members of the organization and have never gotten a real shot with the big club.
