JULY 8th, 7:12pm: The signing is official, the team announced.
JULY 4th, 3:46pm: Mbah a Moute has agreed to a two-year, $4.5MM contract with the Clippers, tweets Wojnarowski. According to Wojnarowski, the team will use the bi-annual exception to complete the deal, which includes a second-year player option.
2:46pm: The Clippers have been active in recent days when it comes to reaching agreements with their own free agents, and are on the verge of locking up another one. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (Twitter link), Los Angeles is finalizing a new deal for veteran forward Luc Mbah a Moute.
Mbah a Moute, who turns 30 in September, started 61 of his 75 games for the Clippers last season. Although he averaged just 3.1 PPG, a career-low, he was relied upon for his defense rather than his offense, providing versatility and reliability on that end of the floor.
Assuming the Clippers finalize an agreement with Mbah a Moute, he will become the fourth free agent the Clippers have agreed to re-sign in four days. The team lost Jeff Green to the Magic and Cole Aldrich to the Timberwolves, but has struck deals to bring back Jamal Crawford, Austin Rivers, and Wesley Johnson.
