Clippers president/coach Doc Rivers said he expected all three of his 2016 draft picks to join the team this season.
But No. 39 pick David Michineau will remain in France.
Hyeres-Toulon Var Basket (ProA) inked 22-year old point guard David Michineau (191-94). He has played for the last two years at ES Chalon-Sur-Saone in the ProA.
Michineau is a 6-foot-4 point guard with some intriguing physical sills, but he’s not ready to run an NBA offense. Plus, the Clippers already re-signed Austin Rivers and signed Raymond Felton to back up Chris Paul.
The Clippers have one roster spot left. They’re better off using that on a veteran who can help now than Michineau.
