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.
We’re tracking all of the decisions on 2020/21 rookie scale options right here.
