NOVEMBER 29: Ford’s deal is now official, according to RealGM’s NBA transactions log.
A two-time member of the All-WCC team, Ford was the second-leading scorer in the West Coast Conference in 2019/20, averaging 21.9 PPG on .491/.411/.836 shooting in 34 games (38.0 MPG) for Saint Mary’s. ESPN ranked him as the 37th-best undrafted prospect.
An Exhibit 10 deal is essentially a training camp invite that guarantees the player up to $50K if he’s waived and then is assigned to the NBA team’s G League affiliate.
It remains to be seen what form an NBAGL season might take in 2020/21, but presumably if he doesn’t make the Clippers’ regular season roster, Ford will be a candidate to join the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario.
