Last week, the Agua Caliente Clippers released their schedule for the upcoming G League bubble and the composition of their coaching staff. Now, we know exactly who will be suiting up for the Clippers once the season tips off.

Here is the roster, as provided by the team.

9 Tyrone Wallace G 6'5 198 6/10/1994 UC Berkeley / USA
5 Emmitt Williams F 6'6 225 9/15/1998 Louisiana State / USA

There are quite a few familiar names on this roster, starting with the present Clippers: Daniel Oturu and two-ways Amir Coffey and Jay Scrubb, though Scrubb isn’t expected to play as he recovers from foot surgery. Then, there are members of LA’s training camp roster: Ky Bowman and the St. Mary’s duo of Jordan Ford and Malik Fitts,

The Clippers are also bringing back Tyrone Wallace. Wallace joined Agua Caliente before the start of the 2017-18 season, was promoted to a two-way, and then had a full NBA contract for the following season before being waived to make room for the massive haul of 2019 free agency. He also went back to Agua Caliente last year.

Two more Agua Caliente vets will be returning for another season. James Palmer Jr. and Donte Grantham were both training camp invites who spent the 2019-20 season in the G League. Palmer averaged 19.1 points and 2.8 assists per game with the AC Clippers in 2019-20, while Grantham tallied 11.7 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

The rest of the roster includes some G League vets, including JJ Avila and Emanuel Terry, as well as some rookies, like Emmitt Williams out of LSU. The most interesting remaining name is Jahmi’us Ramsey, who was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 2020 but has been assigned to the Clippers since the Kings elected not to send a team to the bubble. He’s the youngest player on the roster and clearly has some talent; it will be interesting to see how much run the coaching staff gives Ramsey since he is under contract for a different team.

Furthermore, it’s worth noting that Mfiondu Kabengele isn’t on the bubble roster. He hasn’t been getting any NBA time, but it might have been nice for him to audition for other teams in Orlando, especially since the Clippers didn’t pick up his option for next season. Kabengele will be instead be riding the bench in Los Angeles.

The Agua Caliente Clippers begin their 2021 season on Feb. 11.
