Reports: Clippers agree to deal with Pablo Priginoni
Wednesday July 22nd, 2015

The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a deal with free-agent point guard Pablo Prigioni, the guard announced. RealGM's Shams Charania was the first to report it.

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.

Paul Pierce says Clippers gave him ‘championship opportunity’

Prigioni is the latest agreement in a busy off-season for the Clippers. Los Angeles has signed Paul Pierce, Wesley Johnson, Josh Smith and Cole Aldrich and re-signed DeAndre Jordan and Austin Rivers.

The Clippers finished 56–26 in 2014–15, losing to the Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals.
