According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Clippers are signing Sean Kilpatrick to a 10-day contract.
Clippers are signing guard Sean Kilpatrick to a 10-day contract, league sources tell ESPN. He will be eligible for an NBA playoff roster. Bucks waived him on Friday.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) March 4, 2018
This comes after Tyrone Wallace reportedly turned down a proposed multi-year deal from the Clippers following Wallace using his final day of NBA service on his two-way contract.
Kilpatrick was recently waived by the Milwaukee Bucks, who needed to free up a roster spot to sign Shabazz Muhammad. He should make his Clippers debut tonight.
Kilpatrick hasn’t played much this season for the Bucks after being waived by Brooklyn earlier in the season. Last year, however, he played 25 minutes per game in 70 games for the Nets, averaging 13.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game, shooting 34% from deep. His high-scoring game was a 38-point outing against the Clippers.
At 6’4”, Kilpatrick is primarily a shooting guard, but he’s played a solid chunk of minutes at both PG and SF during his career. He brings the Clippers some much-needed guard depth, with Patrick Beverley, Jawun Evans, and Avery Bradley all out of the lineup. The Clippers’ perimeter rotation is additionally hampered by the absence of starting small forward Danilo Gallinari. Extra guard minutes had been allocated to the Clippers two-way contract players, Tyrone Wallace and C.J. Williams, but both have used all of their allowed days on the NBA roster.
