Clippers Exercise 2020/21 Option On Landry Shamet

As expected, the Clippers have picked up their 2020/21 rookie scale team option on Landry Shamet, league sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link).

Shamet, 22, was drafted 26th overall in 2018 by the Sixers, then was sent to the Clippers at last season’s deadline in the Tobias Harris blockbuster. He emerged as a reliable rotation piece for both playoff teams, averaging 9.1 PPG on .431/.422/.806 shooting in 79 total games (22.8 MPG).

We heard earlier this afternoon that Los Angeles had exercised its ’20/21 option on Jerome Robinson, so it was only a matter of time until we heard the same on Shamet’s option. It will be worth just $2,090,040. The Clippers will have until October 31, 2020 to pick up Shamet’s $3,768,342 option for 2021/22.
