Reports: Luc Mbah a Moute agrees to deal with LA Clippers

From NBA Twitter and media reports

The LA Clippers have reached a one-year deal with veteran forward Luc Mbah a Moute, according to multiple reports. The deal — which is said to be for one season — will allow Mbah a Moute to return to the Clippers.

Here’s more from the Los Angeles Times‘ Broderick Turner on the deal:

Luc Mbah a Moute has agreed to a one-year, $4.3-million deal to return to the Clippers, according to NBA officials who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Before playing for the Houston Rockets last season, Mbah a Moute spent the previous two seasons with the Clippers.

He’s a versatile forward whom the Clippers wanted back because of his competitiveness and tough style of play.

The lock-down defender was a key piece for the Houston Rockets last season with averages of 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 25.6 minutes per night for the West’s top-seed Rockets. After the loss of Trevor Ariza to the Phoenix Suns earlier this summer, the Rockets will face a major challenge replacing last season’s defensive versatility at the forward position.
