Raptors lose Serge Ibaka to Clippers in free agency

Clippers in hot pursuit of Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka

Report: Free agent forward Serge Ibaka agrees to two-year deal with LA Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have reportedly found their Montrezl Harrell replacement.

Ibaka agreed to a two-year contract worth $19 million United States with a player option in the second season, according to reports from The Athletic and ESPN.

Serge Ibaka has agreed to a contract with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to a report from The Athletic's Shams Charania. Both veteran bigs played key roles on the Toronto Raptors 2019 championship team. Attention will now turn to the Spaniard, who is also a free agent.

Of course, the Clippers aren't the only team interested in Gasol and Ibaka - two of the most accomplished players on the market.

The Clippers are utilizing the full $9.25-million mid-level exception to acquire the big man.

In 55 regular-season games, he averaged 15.4 points and 8.2 rebounds on 38.5% shooting from beyond the arc in just 27.0 minutes of playing time.

The Clippers managed to retain starting power forward Marcus Morris on a four-year, $64 million deal, but they had been left with a gaping lack of depth behind him and starting center Ivica Zubac.
