The Clippers seemingly have found their replacement for injured reserve center Miles Plumlee.
Plumlee went down last week, after Knicks power forward Julius Randle accidentally crashed into his knee while chasing a loose ball. Plumlee suffered a sprained MCL and is expected to miss several weeks.
Theis, 31, has appeared in just one game this season, after playing just seven last year because of a knee injury. He said earlier this month that he’s “not happy” about his end-of-the-bench role with in Indiana.
That should change, at least in terms of getting an opportunity, with the Clippers — who are 0-5 since the trade for James Harden.
Theis has also spent time with the Celtics, Rockets and Bulls.
ESPN Sources: Veteran center Daniel Theis has agreed on a contract buyout with the Indiana Pacers and now plans to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers assuming he clears waivers. Clippers recently lost backup C Mason Plumlee to a sprained MCL for several weeks. pic.twitter.com/m5y55TwQ9q
