LA Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell signs for rivals LA Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have secured the signing of Ex-Clippers forward/center Montrezl Harrell on a two year contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The reliable journalist announced the news which came as a surprise for the NBA community.


Harrell entered into free agency this window and has joined city rivals LA Lakers on a deal worth $9.25 million the first year and $9.72 million the second, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

The move came as a shock to particularly Harrell’s ex-Clippers’ teammate Patrick Beverley, who expressed his disappointment on Twitter.

The NBA’s reigning Sixth man has probably come in as a replacement to Dwight Howard, who also to everyone’s surprise joined the Philadelphia Sixers on a 1 year deal. Howard entered free agency on the back of a championship winning campaign with the LA Lakers in 2019-20.

Lakers star LeBron James also responded to Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell joining the current champions on his Instagram story.

The current champions will go into the upcoming season that starts on December 22 with a lot of firepower on the bench.
