The Clippers signed free agent guard Jordan Ford to a non-guaranteed contract on Wednesday and then waived him on Thursday, according to the transaction logs at RealGM and NBA.com.
The move was a procedural one. Ford’s deal was likely an Exhibit 10 contract that will ensure he receives a bonus worth up to $50K if he spends at least 60 days with the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario, L.A.’s G League affiliate.
The Clippers already controlled Ford’s NBAGL rights because he played for Agua Caliente in 2020/21 after going undrafted out of St. Mary’s. He appeared in 15 games for the G League squad last season, averaging 13.9 PPG and 3.4 APG with an impressive .471/.439/.923 shooting line in 27.2 minutes per contest.

What’s the purpose of signing and releasing? Why not just allow teams to pay $50k to whom ever they want for their G league team? I mean $50k vs an NBA teams yearly salary outlay is less than 0.1%.
Who cares if they give out 5-10 such bonuses?
Besides the majority of those guys do not carve out NBA careers and the extra $50k to them might be huge.
