LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Clippers have extended the contracts of guards Landry Shamet and Jerome Robinson.
The team on Tuesday exercised its third-year options on both players.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College coach Jim Christian knows it'll take a while for his team to learn to play without last year's star — Jerome Robinson, who left after his junior year for the NBA draft.
He's just glad his team is scoring when not shooting well.
Ky Bowman scored 26 points, Jordan Chatman had four key free throws and finished with 18 points and Boston College pulled away from pesky St. Francis Brooklyn for a 74-69 victory on Sunday afternoon.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Robinson were introduced in Los Angeles on Monday as the newest Clippers guards. The duo, selected in the NBA draft last week, won't be under the bright spotlight just yet.
That's reserved for center DeAndre Jordan.
This is the final week before the NBA's free agency period begins Sunday, and the biggest question mark for the Clippers is whether center Jordan will opt in or out of his contract.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Clippers have a new backcourt duo.
Kentucky point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was the 11th pick of the NBA draft by Charlotte, who traded him to the Clippers on Thursday night. The Clippers had drafted forward Miles Bridges of Michigan State with the 12th overall pick and sent Bridges and two future second-round picks to the Hornets for Gilgeous-Alexander. LA also picked Boston College guard Jerome Robinson.
Gilgeous-Alexander feels he's a good fit for the Clippers.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College guards Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman will enter the NBA draft but won't sign with an agent in case they decide to return to school.
