Thornwell released by Clippers - Mon 8 Jul 06:49 GMT

Former South Carolina basketball star Sindarius Thornwell is on the hunt for a new team. On Saturday, Thornwell was released by the Los Angeles Clippers, along with fellow guard Tyrone Wallace.

  The site speculated that there was a chance Thornwell could be cut and brought back to save room against the salary cap writing, “His contract guarantees before free agency starts, so there is a chance that the Clippers cut him to get a tiny bit of extra cap space but then bring him back on a minimum deal regardless.

  I’d guess that he’ll be back in Los Angeles, if only because if the Clippers hit in free agency, they will have to renounce the cap holds to a lot of their existing players, and Thornwell is a cheap option to fill out the roster.”
