The L.A. Clippers have traded forward Wesley Johnson to the New Orleans Pelicans for center Alexis Ajinca, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The Clippers will waive Ajinca after the deal becomes official, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Johnson could quickly find himself in a prominent role with New Orleans, as the Pelicans lack depth and defensive versatility on the perimeter.

Ajinca is owed $5.3 million this season, giving the Clippers a cheaper option than releasing Johnson and his remaining $6.1 million.

The Clippers will also reportedly part with guard Juwan Evans to get their roster to 15 players before the regular season begins.
