Lakers signing Montrezl Harrell to 2-year, $19M deal

Sixth Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell Leaves Clippers to Sign with the Lakers

Sixth Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell Leaves Clippers to Sign with the Lakers

Hours after the Lakers reportedly agreed to sign Wesley Matthews on a one-year deal, agent Rich Paul told ESPN that client Montrezl Harrell, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, had agreed to join the reigning National Basketball Association champions. The Clippers couldn't contain Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic, and blew a 3-1 lead to get stunned by the Nuggets in the second round.

Harrell, on the other hand, was already expected to leave the Clippers to chase a big payday and become the main man somewhere else.

The Lakers brass once again worked its magic away from the public eye and swooped in for the highly touted 26-year-old bruiser on the first day of free agency.

Over the last week, the Lakers have added the NBA Sixth Man of the Year, the runner-up (Dennis Schroeder) and Matthews.

Harrell's stunning departure appears to have irked former teammate Patrick Beverley, who initially expressed his disapproval of the move on social media.

One of the chief reasons the Clippers were picked to win it all by many observers was their bench, which possessed not only Harrell but also guard Lou Williams, a three-time Sixth Man of the Year.

The move gives Los Angeles an impressively productive forward, one who averaged 18.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per in less than 28 minutes per night for the Clippers this season.
