The L.A. Clippers have released their roster and schedule for the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League.

The Clippers’ roster is headlined by sophomore guard Jerome Robinson, who made 33 appearances and played 10 minutes per game for the Clippers last season after being selected 13th overall. Robinson came on more in the second half of the season after the Clippers traded Avery Bradley, having a couple bright moments in their first-round series against the Golden State Warriors.

Clippers rookies Mfiondu Kabengele and Terance Mann, both from Florida State, should also play major roles on this squad. The Clippers traded into the first round to select Kabengele 27th overall and later picked Mann with the 48th overall pick. Kabengele should be on the 15-man roster next season, while Mann could potentially be on a two-way deal.

The Clippers also have the draft rights of 25-year-old French guard David Michineau, who they selected 39th overall in the 2016 NBA Draft. Michineau has struggled in prior Summer League appearances, and appeared to finally be enjoying a confident break-out last summer when he got hurt. He had his best professional year yet in France last year, averaging 11 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 steal in 26 minutes per game. Most notably, he made 39.4% of his threes on a healthy 2.75 attempts per game. He had never shot better than 30% from deep in a professional season.

The Clippers’ other Summer League players are outside of the team’s development system, but with the recent decision to not extend qualifying offers to two-way players Jonathan Motley and Angel Delgado, these players have an opportunity to impress the Clippers and potentially earn a training camp invite or a two-way deal.
