Report: Serge Ibaka to sign with Clippers
With Montrezl Harrell reportedly headed to the Lakers, the Clippers reportedly made a play for Serge Ibaka.
From NBA media reports
Serge Ibaka, after winning a title during his three-plus seasons in Toronto, will reportedly head to the LA Clippers on a two-year, $19 million deal according to multiple reports led by Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The 31-year-old Congolese big man found a strong rhythm playing up front alongside Marc Gasol for most of the last two seasons in Toronto, averaging 15.4 points, 8-1 rebounds and connecting on 38.5% of 3.3 long-range attempts.
Ibaka is signing a two-year deal with the Clippers, with a player option in second season, sources said. https://t.co/X7aoU8SF6i

Ibaka will help to ease the reported loss of Clippers big Montrezl Harrell, the reigning Kia NBA Sixth Man, who is expected to sign with the crosstown rival Lakers. Another heady, lengthy defender could create massive difficulties for opponents already facing down Patrick Beverley, Paul George, Marcus Morris and Kawhi Leonard.
