The Clippers are adding to their roster, at least for training camp.

Law Murray of The Athletic reported that the team will be signing George King to an Exhibit 10 deal. An Exhibit 10 contract allows King to participate in training camp and also gives the Clippers his G League rights; should King spend at least 60 days with the Agua Caliente Clippers, he’ll earn an additional $50,000.

The Clippers also have the option to convert King’s deal into a two-way contract. The team still has one two-way spot remaining alongside Jay Scrubb, as Amir Coffey remains a restricted free agent.

King was drafted 59th overall in 2018 out of Colorado and signed a two-way deal with the Phoenix Suns, appearing in one NBA game. In his 41 contests with the Northern Arizona Suns, King averaged 15.5 points and 5.3 rebounds in 31.8 minutes per game. He shot 51.8 percent on twos, 43.3 percent on threes, and 82.0 percent on free throws.

The 27-year-old spent the last two seasons overseas in Italy, Poland, and Germany, and returned to Summer League to play with the Portland Trail Blazers last month. He played in three games, all starts, including one against the Clippers when he dropped 12 points and nine rebounds. The Blazers beat the Clippers 86-66.

The Clippers now have 17 players under contract, with King and Yogi Ferrell on non-guaranteed deals. That means they can invite a maximum of three more players to training camp unless they cut someone else.
