The Clippers don't plan to re-sign Fitts to a second 10-day contract ahead of Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.
Instead, LA is expected to fill the open roster spot by bringing aboard point guard Yogi Ferrell on a 10-day deal, pending his clearance of the NBA's health and safety protocols. Fitts appeared in three games during his time with the Clippers, scoring his first NBA points in garbage time during Sunday's 124-105 win over the Timberwolves.
Fitts is expected to sign a 10-day deal with the Clippers on Thursday, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.
After going undrafted out of St. Mary's last fall, Fitts joined the Clippers on an Exhibit 10 deal for training camp before suiting up for LA's G League affiliate, Agua Caliente, at the G League bubble in Orlando earlier this year. Over his 14 outings for Agua Caliente, the 23-year-old power forward averaged 11.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 three-pointers in 26.3 minutes. He's unlikely to be included in head coach Tyronn Lue's rotation during his stint on the NBA roster.
Fitts registered 21 points (10-21 FG, 1-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block across 41 minutes in Saturday's loss against Greensboro.
Fitts ended the season on a strong note, as he scored in double digits in five of his last six contests and surpassed the 20-point mark in three of those outings. That was not the form throughout the season for him, though, since he averaged just 11.1 points and 4.0 rebounds per game during the entire G League campaign.
Fitts registered 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 34 minutes in Monday's loss against the Hustle.
Fitts delivered another scoring performance and he's clearly ending the season on a strong note, as he has scored 13 or more points in three straight games while reaching the 20-point mark in each of his last two contests. He is averaging just 9.6 points per game, but that number spikes to 11.6 points per game over his last five appearances.
Fitts had 26 points (10-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds and a steal across 34 minutes in Saturday's loss against Erie.
Fitts is only averaging 8.6 points per game in 10 appearances this season, but he has taken his game to a whole new level over his last few games -- the 26-point output was a season-high best for him while also meaning he's now scored in double digits in back-to-back games for the first time in the current G League season. He has also logged more than 30 minutes in both contests, and all signs point to him remaining in the starting five going forward.
Fitts had 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists across 34 minutes in Friday's loss against Fort Wayne.
Fitts got the start and responded well, putting up a season-high scoring mark. Fitts has now scored in double digits in three of his last six outings, but he's played more than 25 minutes just once all season long. That lack of regular involvement certainly limits his upside going forward.
Fitts posted 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and a block across 22 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss against the Raptors 905.
Fitts was one of six Agua Caliente players that scored in double digits in this game, and he accomplished that feat by displaying an excellent shooting touch from deep. That's been a trend for him this season, though, as he's making 41.7 percent of his treys so far. He provides limited value in other categories, though, since he's only averaging 6.3 points and 2.8 rebounds per contest.
