Ingles had spent the preseason with the Clippers, but was let go, the last player cut from the team. The Clippers had the maximum number of players on contract and preferred not to keep a non-guaranteed player. When asked Wednesday if he regrets that decision, Rivers answered, “all the time.” “I said it the day we released him that this was a bad decision and that we’re going to regret it,” he said. “Unfortunately I was working for someone who said we couldn’t eat a contract. We were begging to eat one contract and they said that will never happen and we had to let him go.”
Gobert isn’t the only one who gets a bonus if the team has better than a 100 defensive rating while he’s on the floor. Derrick Favors has such a bonus, as do Joe Ingles, Dante Exum, and Raul Neto. Ingles makes $250K if his defense is up to par, Exum makes $100K, and Neto makes $50K if they hit that benchmark. All four must play 67 games in order to qualify for the bonus, so no small-sample-size bonuses are paid out by ownership.

Joe Ingles said he and other teammates encourage Mitchell to keep shooting, believing the shots will start to fall more consistently. “I don’t care what he shoots — he can shoot 1 for 100 or 100 for 100,” Ingles said. “We want him to be aggressive, we want him to take the shots that he’s confident with. We’re going to support him 100 percent. If he makes it, great, if he doesn’t he’ll probably make the next one. It’s on all of us to keep encouraging him.”
