Report: Former Miami Heat Guard Signs With Los Angeles Clippers

1 Min Read

NBA teams around the are still bolstering their rosters for preseason and training camp competition, and that has led to former Miami Heat guard Derrick Walton Jr.’s latest opportunity.

According to a recent report, Walton has signed a one-year Exhibit 10 deal with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Walton, a University of Michigan product, spent the 2017-18 season with the Heat on a two-way contract. Last season, he competed for a spot on the Chicago Bulls, but was ultimately waived before the regular season began.

He subsequently played overseas for teams in Germany and Lithuania.

Walton already played for the Clippers during Summer League earlier this month and averaged 4.3 points and 1.8 assists in four games.

Now, Walton will look to secure a spot on one of the most talented rosters in the NBA. While he may lack the natural talent to be a major difference maker in the NBA, he has shown tenacity and guts throughout his young career.

Hopefully, he is able to turn some heads while in L.A. and earn himself a spot on an NBA roster.
