Clippers Tried To Sneak Joe Ingles Through Waivers

The Los Angeles Clippers cut Joe Ingles during the preseason as part of a roster crunch, but quickly found a home with the Utah Jazz.

Doc Rivers believes the Australian small forward “would’ve found his way on the floor with us” if the Clippers could have held on to the 27-year-old.

“I just think a guy that knows how to play when you put him on a good team, he can be really good,” Rivers continued. “And he’s a great guy that you want on your team.”

The Clippers were hoping nobody would claim Ingles off waivers while they tried to figure out how to re-sign him, which would have required cutting a player.
