For those of you who don’t know what an Exhibit 10 clause is (count me in that bucket), here’s a quick description.
“If a standard NBA contract includes an attached called Exhibit 10, the teams has the right to convert the contract to a two-way contract. To be eligible for an Exhibit 10 attachment, a contract must be for one season at the minimum salary with no bonuses of any kind. A team can only add the Exhibit 10 attachment if they have their own G-League affiliate. This conversion must be done prior to the start of the NBA’s regular season.”
Henton played last season for the Golden State Warriors affiliate in Santa Cruz, where he averaged 13.6 PPG, 5.2 RPG, and 1.7 APG over 37 games. He started off this year playing in the Philippines where he was absolutely dominating the competition. In his first four games, he was putting up 33 and 11.
Although the Clippers have already added Danilo Gallinari, Wesley Johnson, and Sam Dekker to their roster this past year, with the NBA steering towards position-less basketball, the more scorers you have with size that can play multiple positions, the better. Whatever the circumstances, you can count on Henton playing his ass off to try to get on the roster. Congrats and best of luck to Buckets!
Blessed with opportunity never stop grinding! https://t.co/Cm8dZnPymY
