The Clippers recalled their 2016 first round pick Brice Johnson from the G-League on Wednesday.
This was an expected move for the Clips after Blake Griffin (MCL) went down. Brice Johnson will slot in behind Sam Dekker and Montrezl Harrell as backup for now. The second year big played well in Summer League with 14.4 points, 5.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks in 23.8 minuter per game. He followed that up with 12.3 points, 9.0 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.3 blocks in 27.4 minutes per game in the G-League. If the Clippers fall out of playoff contention then they may want to see what they have in the 23-year-old. Keep him on your watch list for now and those in very deep and dynasty leagues can add him as a speculative pickup.
