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

The 6-8 Morris gave the Clippers versatility in their front court, averaging 11.8 points and 4.8 rebounds while shooting 47.5% from 3-point range in the playoffs.

While the Lakers opened free agency Friday afternoon knowing that main target Anthony Davis will ponder his future with the team until next week, they pulled off another big play by agreeing to deals with free agents Montrezl Harrell and Wesley Matthews, according to people with knowledge of the situation not authorized to speak publicly.

Howard has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Rockets then traded Harrell to the Clippers in 2017 in the Chris Paul deal, and that's where Harrell became a star.


During the 2019-20 season, though, Harrell had the best season of his career.

Harrell, a client of Rich Paul's Klutch Sports (which also represents LeBron James and Anthony Davis), reportedly agreed to a two-year deal worth $19 million with the 2019-20 National Basketball Association champs, turning down an offer from the Hornets for more money in the process.

Clippers fans are very unhappy about Harrell leaving. Harrell and Paul George were rumored to have had a heated argument after game 7. Or perhaps it was the stability and camaraderie of the Los Angeles Lakers that lured him to join them. Replying to Bleacher Report's meme about their next meeting, Beverley replied, "Frfr happy for him".

Harrell tweeted early Friday that the day would "be really interesting!" The two peers will be waiting to go against one another to prove a point.
