Serge Ibaka has decided to join the Clippers – the same team that wrested Kawhi Leonard away
from Toronto in 2019 – on a two-year, $19-million US contract.
Serge Ibaka averaged 15.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game for the Toronto Raptors throughout
the 2020 season. In the 2020 playoffs, Ibaka averaged 14.8 points and 7.7 rebounds.
Ibaka’s arrival helps the Clippers replace reigning Sixth Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell, who signed a two-
year, $19 million deal with the Lakers.
Ibaka’s performance was one reason the reigning champs didn’t suffer a hangover in their repeat bid.
He averaged 15.4 points and 8.2 rebounds. He also knocked down 38.5 percent of his shots from beyond the arc.
Given how well he has performed in his brief time north of the border, the Raptors probably would’ve re-signed
Ibaka in their perfect world. They may have gone into the offseason with a firm ceiling on how much they’d be
willing to pay him, though.
