Clippers Add Australian Swingman Joe Ingles


The Los Angeles Clippers and Joe Ingles agreed to terms on a one-year contract on Monday.


Joe Ingles was garnering the attention of many NBA teams after his solid play at the FIBA World Cup in Spain. The Clippers became the lucky team to land him on Monday. Los Angeles has been looking to improve their small forward position and they think that Ingles could be the solution. Joe Ingles averaged 11.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game at the World Cup.

This signing pushes the Clippers roster count to 15 players. The players battling for playing time at the small forward position with Ingles are Matt Barnes, Reggie Bullock, and Chris Douglas-Roberts. Ingles could be the most efficient out of that group of players as he went for a 69.7% field goal percentage during the World Cup. Regardless of how well Ingles played in Spain, he is going to have to prove himself during training camp to get some minutes on a very good Clippers team.
