Los Angeles Clippers guard Joshua Primo got himself into a bit of a spot during his time with the San Antonio Spurs. The young player was accused of exposing himself to several women during his time with the Spurs.

During his second season in the NBA with the Spurs, he was waived from the squad. Reports came out that the player was dealing with a mental health issue. The real reason which came out later was that Primo was accused by the former Spurs sports psychologist of exposing himself to her. The sports psychologist had even sued the Spurs and Primo.

The primary investigation was done by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Texas. It concluded on the 8th of December, that there was not enough evidence to charge Joshua Primo with the crime. The NBA suspended Primo for four games without pay at the start of the 2023 season after its investigation.

After Primo’s release from the San Antonio Spurs, he went a year without a contract. He signed up with the Los Angeles Clippers for the 2023-24 season. Though he still has to play in a game this season.

Joshua Primo: A future star or bust

Joshua Primo was selected with the 12th pic in the 2021 draft by the San Antonio Spurs. Having only played one year of college basketball, Primo was touted as a future star with further development to his game. During his time with the Spurs, Primo averaged 5.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists.

However, in his second season before getting waived, Primo’s 4-game average was 7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists. A big leap and reports of a huge untapped potential prompted the Clippers to sign the 6′ 4″ guard. Primo has to work his way up the Clippers ladder.

With his past run-in with the law now behind him, the now 20-year-old player can look towards his future. The Clippers, even though they have a top-heavy roster, have put enough faith to sign Primo.
