Serge Ibaka and Kawhi Leonard won an NBA championship together in 2019 with the Raptors.
And now, the 31-year-old free agent center is following his former teammate to the West Coast.
Ibaka intends to sign a two-year, $19 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, with a player option in the second year.
So while Toronto all of a sudden looks less threatening in the east, the Clippers got even more stacked defensively in the west — on paper, at least.
Whether L.A.’s rumored chemistry issues will be worked out this season or not, Ibaka joins Leonard in a lineup that also includes Paul George, Marcus Morris and Patrick Beverly.
Switch city, indeed.
