The Denver Nuggets waived Prigioni on Monday after acquiring him in a trade with the Rockets that sent Ty Lawson to Houston. Prigioni cleared waivers and became a free agent on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
In 67 games split between the Rockets and the New York Knicks last season, the 38-year-old Prigioni averaged 4.1 points, 2.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game. He shot 39.9% from the floor and 34.4% from the three-point line.
Prigioni made his NBA debut in 2012 at the age of 35 after a career playing in Argentina and Spain, becoming the oldest NBA rookie in the last 40 years.
The Clippers finished 56–26 in 2014–15, losing to the Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals.
