NCAA Basketball: Final Four-South Carolina vs Gonzaga Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Sindarius Thornwell is headed to LA.

The Gamecocks forward, originally drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks, has been acquired by the Los Angeles Clippers.

Thornwell helped lead South Carolina to their first-ever Final Four this past March, going on a tear through the NCAA Tournament before eventually falling to National Runner Up Gonzaga.

Thornwell averaged 14.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game in his four-year career at South Carolina with marks of 21.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game in his senior season.

Best of luck to him and a hearty congrats too!
