Los Angeles Clippers Trade Filip Petrusev to the Sacramento Kings for Future Evaluation Opportunities

Los Angeles Clippers Trade Filip Petrusev to Sacramento Kings

Clippers Opt for Roster Flexibility

In a bid to maximize roster flexibility, the Los Angeles Clippers have made a trade, sending Filip Petrusev to the Sacramento Kings along with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Petrusev’s Swift Departure

The 23-year-old Serbian player has had a short stint with the Clippers since being part of the package deal that brought James Harden to Philadelphia 76ers. However, Petrusev finds himself on the move once again, this time staying within the same state as he heads to the capital of California.

Kings’ Opportunity to Assess Young Talent

While the Clippers now have only 13 players under contract, this trade provides the Kings with a chance to closely evaluate a promising young player who could be a valuable asset for their future.

Petrusev’s Journey to the NBA

Petrusev, who was selected as the 50th pick in the 2021 draft, opted to spend two years in Europe before joining the NBA. He still has two years remaining on his contract, worth a total of $3 million. However, only the first $560,000 is guaranteed, meaning he will need to impress the coaching staff, led by Mike Brown, to secure his place on the team.
