The Clippers continue to close out their week with a variety of deals announced, also signing former Memphis Grizzlies forward Justise Winslow to a two-year deal.
The news was reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, via Justise’s CAA representation.

Bringing back guard Reggie Jackson and Kawhi Leonard on Friday, the Clippers remained active by adding the injury-riddled Winslow, whose defensive prowess off the bench should help clean up the Clippers’ matchup mishaps from 2020.
The Clippers also brought back forward Nicolas Batum during the free agency period, slated to lead the position ahead of Winslow.
Since his drafting in 2015, Justise Winslow has spent five years with the Miami Heat, then getting traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in 2020. Winslow’s tenure with Memphis only saw 26 games played — due to a hip injury — and averaged 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists during that span.
The height of Winslow’s career came in 2018-2019, averaging 12.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists over a stretch of 66 games for the Miami Heat.
