Clippers Re-Sign Patrick Beverley

JULY 12: The Clippers have officially re-signed Beverley, the team announced today in a press release. While agreeing to terms with Beverley was one of the club’s first moves of free agency last week, it was far from the last — L.A. has since acquired Leonard and Paul George while also reaching new deals with Ivica Zubac, Rodney McGruder, and JaMychal Green.

JULY 1: Patrick Beverley will remain with the Clippers on a three-year, $40MM deal, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. It’s the exact contract that Beverley was rumored to be seeking in a report earlier this week.

Beverley was among the most highly sought after guards on the free agent market, with the Mavericks, Lakers, Bulls and Kings among the teams expressing interest.

Re-signing Beverley won’t affect the Clippers’ ability to get a deal done with Kawhi Leonard, notes Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders (Twitter link), who observes that they can still add Leonard to the roster without needing to trade Danilo Gallinari.

The Clippers made it a priority to keep Beverley, who was an inspirational leader for the team, along with a dogged defender. He missed nearly all of the 2017/18 season after being acquired from Houston in the Chris Paul deal, but bounced back strong this year, posting a 7.6/5.0/3.8 line in 78 games.

    So clippers actually gave him what he wanted I wanted. It smart to resign him if they miss out on kawhi

    Damn. So looking like Kawhi either staying or going to the Lakers. Good keep got the Clippers. As a Lakers fan I’ve been saying the only star player I’d want is Kawhi and if they couldn’t get him I’d love to see them get this guy so now I really hope we get Kawhi. Clippers fans gotta be somewhat bummed though. They were having high hopes this off season to get one or two big free agents and so far doesn’t seem that way. Unless they somehow get Kawhi still.

        Nah he can go play with lebron and ad and win multiple chips or play on clips and get injured like he did with spurs because the rest of the roster sucks.

    I don’t get why all the Clippers fans are so certain they are a huge player for Leonard. There has been little to no talk of the clippers with Leonard all we know is they will have a meeting with him but other than that we know nothing.

      Big facts clips arent that good of a squad and only got into playoffs because of injuries to other teams stars. Ballmer spent millions pumping up clips and they are only adding beverly lmao. Its hilarious.

        Getting tired of Laker fans. The Clips have plenty of room to sign Kawhi and more and already have much more depth. Yesterday they had to have Beverly on the Lakers; now Clips are sad for signing him.

    Lol so funny reading the two laker fanboys posts getting shown as what everyone knows. Clueless and delusional.
