With Kawhi Leonard possibly being sidelined to start this upcoming season, the Los Angeles Clippers decided to use one of their final roster spots on Justise Winslow according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Terms of the agreement were not released.
Winslow has a real opportunity to impact the lineup with Kawhi Leonard out to start the season. When healthy – which is he now — he’s shown great flashes in Miami and Memphis.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 6, 2021
On paper, the Winslow signing looks very promising for the Clippers. He’s a very athletic wing defender, equipped with good ball-handling skills when healthy. Plus, he can be counted on as a secondary shot creator when he attacks the paint.
Winslow, who averaged 6.8 points and 4.5 rebounds in 22 games for the Grizzlies last season, also provides some of the attributes that Los Angeles will need with Leonard out, and there are some opportunities behind Paul George and Terance Mann for minutes at the start of the season.
