Los Angeles Clippers Rumors
Jawun Evans is still in the process of finding a place to live, but he has solidified his status with his employer. The Greenville native has signed a three-year contract with the Los Angeles Clippers, the first two of which are guaranteed. The third has a team option attached to it, Evans said.
“I kind of figured last summer when they signed Austin (Rivers) and Jamal (Crawford) back, they had basically guaranteed $25 million in salary for this upcoming season and I knew they weren’t going to be able to commit financially longterm to having a third shooting guard at a high rate. That’s just unrealistic. You can’t have $30-$40 million at one position, especially when you’re going to have two or three max players on the team. “So on June 29 (executive vice president of basketball operations) Lawrence Frank was nice enough and professional enough to give me a call. I call it my break-up call. He basically said, we’re not going to bring you back.”
