Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Named to G League Second Team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley was named to the 2019-20 All-NBA G League Second Team.

The 2019-20 season marked Motley's third in the G League and his second with the Agua Caliente Clippers. He averaged 24.0 points on 17.7 shots, 7.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.0 blocks in 33.0 minutes.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Leads team to G League win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley totaled 33 points (11-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's G League win over Stockton.

Motley started the second half with a bang, and perhaps the only thing that inhibited him on the evening was his five personal fouls. He's now averaging 23.4 points and 8.1 rebounds in 19 games at the level this season.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Massive double-double in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley tallied 30 points (11-18 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 35 minutes Tuesday for the G League's Agua Caliente Clippers in their 117-103 win over the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

With career averages of 23.0 points and 9.4 rebounds in 33.1 minutes over 78 games in the G League during the past two-plus seasons, Motley doesn't have much left to prove at the level. That being said, his status as a two-way player limits him to only 45 days with the NBA Clippers, so he's likely to remain with Agua Caliente for the foreseeable future unless a rash of injuries hits the Los Angeles frontcourt.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Plays big in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley tallied 27 points (12-20 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and a block in 33 minutes during Sunday's G League win over Stockton.

Motley got the start and rewarded the decision with a huge performance. He hadn't played in Agua Caliente's last three games and hasn't started regularly of late, but the 24-year-old has performed well when given the chance, averaging 21.2 points across 16 G League games this season.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Paces team in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley scored 28 points (8-19 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT) and added nine rebounds and a steal during Sunday's G League loss to Santa Cruz.

Motley went off for a second-straight game and is averaging 30 points over his last two contests. In 12 G League games this year, he is posting 21.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per contest.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Does it all in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley scored 32 points (14-23 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT) and added seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and five blocks during Thursday's G League win over Skyforce.

Motley more than doubled his nearest teammate in points in the contest. The only negative on the evening was co-leading the team with four turnovers.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Transferred to NBA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley was transferred from the G League to the NBA on Wednesday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Motley has appeared in just one NBA game this season, racking up four minutes during the second game of the year. It remains likely that he'll see most of his run in the G League.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Leads team in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley scored 27 points (8-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT) and totaled five rebounds, seven assists, and a steal during Thursday's G League win over Windy City.

It was another big game for Motley, who led the team in scoring in this one. He sits at 20.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 10 G League games this season.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Huge effort Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley racked up 29 points (12-24 FG, 0-1 3PT, 3-4 FT), 13 rebounds and four assists over 40 minutes Friday versus Sioux Falls.

Motley continues to destroy the G League ranks, tallying at least 20 points in three of the six games this season and 29 and 30 in two of the last three. Friday also marked his second double-double thus far.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Scores 11 points in thumping win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley totaled 11 points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist in 17 minutes during Sunday's 127-87 victory over the Shanghai Sharks.

Motley was impactful during Sunday's easy victory, doing his best Montrezl Harrell impression with a high energy performance. Motley is not going to be an every night part of the rotation barring an injury to one of either Harrell or Ivica Zubac.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Inks two-way deal with Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley has re-signed with the Clippers on a two-way contract, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Motley played the majority of his NBA minutes in garbage time, but his G-League showing last season was enough to show he has promise. Given the influx of star power on the Clippers' roster, it would still be surprising if Motley saw significant minutes barring a barrage of injuries.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Becomes unrestricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley was not extended a qualifying offer by the Clippers, making him an unrestricted free agent, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

Motley played mostly garbage time last season for the Clippers. However, he showed potential in the G League, averaging 24.4 points, 9.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 34.3 minutes.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Gets garbage-time action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley managed one rebound and one assist in one minute during Thursday's 128-118 loss to the Bucks.

Motley has earned six minutes across three appearances here in March. The 23-year-old sophomore has seen double-digit minutes four times through 19 appearances this season, and he'll only be worthy of consideration if the Clippers opt to rest the regulars.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Scores 10 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley recorded 10 points (4-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and seven rebounds in 29 minutes Thursday against Indiana.

Motley was surprisingly productive for his team off the bench, but the Clippers would lose in embarrassing fashion on the road. Thursday marked the first time since Jan. 20 that Motley finished with 10 or more points, as his opportunities have been limited this season given his current role in the team's rotation.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Sees heightened role sans Gallinari
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley played a season-high 18 minutes off the bench and contributed 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-5 FT), four rebounds and one steal Sunday in the Clippers' 103-95 win over the Spurs.

Motley has spent the majority of the season with the G League's Ontario Agua Caliente Clippers, but he's been up with the parent club for most of January. He had seen single-digit minutes while appearing in five of the Clippers' preceding seven contests, but Motley benefited from a spike in playing time Sunday with Danilo Gallinari (back) sidelined. While Motley turned the ball over four times, he showed the ability to put up quality scoring and rebounding numbers on a per-minute basis. That also held true during his time in the G League and his brief run as a rotation player for the Mavericks last April, so Motley could be someone to keep an eye on if Gallinari's absence turns into a long-term situation. The Clippers are already anticipating that Gallinari will be sidelined for the final three games of their road trip, which wraps up Friday in Chicago.

Johnathan Motley: Leads game in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley (undisclosed) started at power forward Tuesday, finishing with 28 points (12-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and a blocked shot in the win over the Stars.

Motley had previously missed time with an undisclosed injury, but he managed to take the court Tuesday and easily led the game in scoring. A dominant big man in his own right, Motley has played his best alongside center Angel Delgado, who finished Tuesday's contest with 19 rebounds. While Motley likely will cede rebounding opportunities so long as he shares the floor with Delgado, the 23-year-old will see an added opportunity for scoring opportunities thanks to the shared responsibilities between players.

Johnathan Motley: Not able to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley (undisclosed) did not play in Friday's loss to Stockton.

It's unclear what Motley seems to be suffering from, as the center has bounced between the G League and NBA for much of the season. He'll attempt to take the court Tuesday against Salt Lake City.

Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Recalled from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Motley, who appeared in 11 games for the Mavericks last year, has yet to take the floor for the Clippers this season. He's been a force in the G League, however, averaging 26.1 points on 56.1 percent shooting, 11.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 35.7 minutes.

December 12, 2018 01:08 PM
Johnathan Motley: Posts 33 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley finished Monday's win over the Skyforce with 33 points (13-20 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 13 rebounds and three assists.

Motley only continues to build upon his strong 2017-18 G League numbers, averaging 3.6 points (25.8 season average) and 1.6 rebounds (11.2 season average) more per game despite playing a similar amount of minutes. It seems likely the forward won't spend the entire season in the G League, but so long as the Clippers continue to do well on the NBA level, there might not be room for Motley on the 15-man active roster.

December 2, 2018 04:00 PM
Clippers' Johnathan Motley: Assigned to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motley has been assigned to the G League, Tomer Azarly of reports.

Buried on the depth chart, Motley has not seen any action for the Clippers this season. Motley will likely continue to be a factor with the Agua Calienete Clippers in the G League however.
