Report: Clippers sign Primo after NBA issues 4-game ban for detrimental conduct

The Los Angeles Clippers are signing free-agent guard Josh Primo to a two-way contract, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Friday.

The report comes on the same day the NBA announced it’s suspending the former San Antonio Spurs wing for four games for conduct detrimental to the league.

The Spurs waived Primo in October 2022 after he allegedly exposed himself to women. A subsequent investigation by the NBA corroborated those allegations, although it “did not find evidence that he engaged in any sexual or other misconduct apart from these brief exposures,” the league announced Friday.

Primo “maintains that his conduct was not intentional,” according to the NBA’s statement. He has not played in the league since being cut by San Antonio.

The 20-year-old was selected 12th overall by the Spurs in 2021. He was the youngest player drafted in his class.
