On the latest “No Cap Room” podcast from Yahoo! Sports, Jake Fischer said the LA Clippers looked into signing Kai Jones. Ultimately, LA promoted Joshua Primo to a standard contract from his two-way deal, and they’re set to sign Daniel Theis after his buyout from the Indiana Pacers.
Jones was waived by the Charlotte Hornets during the preseason. Jones had been away from the team for weeks after displaying erratic behavior on social media.
Fischer said that Jones doesn’t appear to be in the mental or physical condition needed to play in the NBA right now. That led LA to look elsewhere before landing on bringing in Theis.
