Primo, 20, is 6-foot-6 and was selected by the Spurs with the No. 12 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. But he was released following an investigation that concluded he performed multiple acts of indecent exposure toward women.

Primo was suspended by the NBA for the first four games of the season as a result.

On the court, he showed some promise as a rookie, appearing in 50 games as a rookie, averaging 5.8 points and 2.3 rebounds with San Antonio. He appeared in just four games last season, before being waived by the Spurs on Oct. 28, 2022.

Primo signed a two-way deal with the Clippers on Sept. 29 of this year.

According to our Brandon Santomauro:

“News regarding the Primo accusations broke last year, as a former Spurs sports psychologist alleged that he exposed himself in front of her.

“The former Spurs employee had sued the team and Primo over the incidents, and the complaint was settled out of court.

“The suit stated Primo ‘repeatedly exposed himself up to nine times in total to Dr. Cauthen during individual private sessions, despite her numerous complaints about Primo’s improper sexual conduct to the organization’s leadership.’

“After being released by the Spurs last October, Primo told ESPN in a statement that he was dealing with previous trauma and had been looking for help since struggling with his mental health.”
