The Clippers signed Primo to a two-year, $3.96 million deal Thursday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.. The contract is fully guaranteed for the rest of this season and includes $1 million guaranteed for 2024-25.
Primo caught on with the Clippers on a two-way deal in September and has been converted to a standard NBA deal less than two months later. The 20-year-old guard has spent the beginning of the 2023-24 season with the Ontario Clippers of the G League and has averaged 17.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.7 steals in 28.9 minutes per contest across his first three appearances.

Clippers' Joshua Primo: Inks two-way deal with LAC
Primo is planning to sign a two-way contract with the Clippers on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Primo, the 2021 No. 12 overall pick, was waived by the Spurs last October after multiple allegations emerged of the 19-year-old exposing himself to women.

After being waived, Primo said he suffered from "previous trauma" and took time to focus on his mental health.

Joshua Primo: Clears waivers
Primo became an unrestricted free agent Monday after going unclaimed off waivers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Less than three weeks after exercising Primo's third-year player option for the 2023-24 season, the Spurs waived the No. 12 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft on Friday after multiple allegations emerged of the 19-year-old exposing himself to women. Primo isn't yet facing any criminal charges or discipline from the league, but the circumstances surrounding his departure from San Antonio as well as the $8 million-plus in salary he's due over the next two seasons were likely major factors in the league's other 29 teams not putting in a waiver claim for the young wing. Before news of the allegations were reported, Primo said in a statement Friday following his release from the Spurs that he had suffered "previous trauma" and "will now take this time to focus on my mental health treatment more fully." It's not clear if or when Primo will be able to resume his playing career.... See More ... See Less
