Clippers officially waive IT to free up roster spot

The LA Clippers have officially waived guard Isaiah Thomas, Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Saturday.

Thomas, 31, was acquired Thursday as part of a three-team trade with the Washington Wizards and New York Knicks. The move frees up a second roster spot for LA as it eyes a playoff run.

League sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski after the trade that the Clippers planned to waive Thomas.

The Clippers have Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams and Landry Shamet who can play the same role the veteran Thomas, 30, would fill.

Thursday’s trade saw Marcus Morris and Thomas head to the Clippers, with Jerome Robinson joining the Wizards. In exchange, the Knicks received Moe Harkless and a 2020 first-round draft pick.

Thomas is averaging 12.2 points this season. For his career, he is averaging 18.1 points and 5.0 assists in 28.9 minutes across 525 games.
