Clippers Sign George King To Exhibit 10 Deal

The Clippers have signed free agent forward George King to an Exhibit 10 contract, his agents at SLASH Sports tell Law Murray of The Athletic (Twitter link).

King, who played for Portland in Summer League last month, was the 59th overall pick in the 2018 draft out of Colorado. He spent his rookie season with Phoenix on a two-way contract, but appeared in just one NBA game and has been out of the league for the last two years.

King played in Italy and Poland during the 2019/20 season, then spent the ’20/21 campaign in Germany with the Niners Chemnitz. Now, the 27-year-old is on track to attend training camp with the Clippers.

Earning a regular season spot in L.A. is probably a long shot for King, as the Clippers have 14 players on guaranteed contracts, plus Yogi Ferrell on a non-guaranteed deal. However, King’s Exhibit 10 deal could put him in line for a $50K bonus if he ends up joining the club’s G League affiliate, the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario. He may also be a candidate to have his Exhibit 10 contract converted to a two-way deal.
