NBA guard Josh Primo has been suspended four games without pay for conduct detrimental to the association, the league announced in a Friday morning press release.
“The league found that Primo engaged in inappropriate and offensive behavior by exposing himself to women,” the official NBA release said. “Primo maintains that his conduct was not intentional. … Nevertheless, this behavior does not conform to league standards and warrants discipline.”
Hours after Primo’s suspension was announced, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the guard had agreed to a two-way contract with the Clippers.
“Since his release from the Spurs in October, Primo has been engaged in ongoing therapy – which will continue in LA,” Wojnarowski wrote.

The Spurs chose Primo, out of Alabama, with the 12th pick of the 2021 draft. After averaging 5.9 points in 54 games with San Antonio over a two-year span, his stint with the team came to an abrupt end when the Spurs waived him on Oct. 28, 2022.
Allegations soon surfaced that Primo had exposed himself to women, and former San Antonio sport psychologist Hillary Cauthen sued him in November—saying that Primo exposed his genitals to her on nine occasions. Later that month, the Spurs, Primo and Cauthen reached an agreement to resolve the lawsuit.
