Clippers Waive Nate Darling

The Clippers have waived Nate Darling, the team’s PR department tweets.

It’s a surprise move, considering Los Angeles signed Darling to a two-way deal on Friday and the team hasn’t practiced since the All-Star break. Either the Clippers had a change of heart about how to use their two-way slot or signing and waiving Darling was always the plan in order to get him some extra money on top of his G League salary.

The 6’6″ shooting guard has spent the past couple seasons with the Clippers’ NBAGL affiliate in Ontario, California.

He had a strong showing during the fall Showcase Cup, averaging 20.1 PPG, 4.4 RPG and 2.5 APG on .469/.440/.828 shooting in 19 games (31.1 MPG). That has carried over to the 2022/23 regular season with Ontario, as he’s averaging 21.4 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 1.8 APG and 1.0 SPG on .464/.389/.868 shooting in 20 games (31.7 MPG).

The Clippers opened up a two-way spot by waiving Moses Brown last week, which was reportedly a mutual decision after he had reached his two-way games played limit.
