The Los Angeles Clippers and 25-year-old center Ivica Zubac have agreed to a three-year, $33 million extension.
The Clippers declined their $7.5 million team option for Zubac for the 2022-23 in order to sign him to the extension.
Zubac averaged a near double-double last season with 10.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per game on an average 24.4 minutes.
The big man out of Bosnia was traded to the Clippers from the Los Angeles Lakers back in 2019 for Michael Beasley and Mike Muscala.
Finishing ninth in the Western Conference last season, the Clippers may finally give Zubac more playing time and value after signing him to an extension.
The team also recently signed John Wall to a deal after agreed to a buyout with the Houston Rockets.
