After much delay, the Clippers were finally able to officially announce their summer league roster this morning following the lifting of the moratorium. Today, the Clippers could make official their draft-day trade to acquire the rights to Jawun Evans for cash considerations. Following that announcement, they were able to reveal their summer league roster, featuring Evans.
The roster is as follows:
Clippers announce SL roster. Notable additions: Kendall Marshall, Hollis Thompson III. Both legit shots to make an NBA team. pic.twitter.com/VWOATmO4GZ— Lucas Hann (@LucasJHann) July 6, 2017
As noted, Kendall Marshall and Hollis Thompson are two heavyweight additions. It’s normally a dangerous game to declare that undrafted nobodies are NBA-caliber based upon summer league, but both of these players have had some measure of success in the NBA: Marshall has career averages of 5 points and 5 assists in 19 minutes, while shooting 37% from deep. Thompson has career averages of 8 points and 3 rebounds in 24 minutes a game, and is a career 39% shooter from beyond the arc as a 6’8” wing.
