Clippers agree to contract extension with Ivica Zubac – NBA Blog


The LA Clippers have agreed to a contract extension with Ivica Zubac, President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank announced.

“For four seasons, Zu has been a pillar of our team, durable and dependable,” said Frank. “He does whatever is needed: setting screens, rolling to the rim, anchoring the interior of the defense. He is a reliable teammate and a consistent pro, just entering the prime of his career. We are excited to continue growing with him.”

Per the Los Angeles Times, the two sides “agreed to terms on a three-year, $33-million deal that has no options, according to people familiar with the negotiations but not authorized to speak publicly.”

Zubac, 25, started 76 games for the Clippers last season and averaged career-highs in points (10.3), rebounds (8.5), assists (1.6) and blocked shots (1.0). The 7-foot center also set a career-high with 25 double-doubles, the most for a Clipper since 2017-18.

More from the Times: “The team held an option that it declined so Zubac could be signed to a longer-term contract.”

Zubac has appeared in 360 games and owns career averages of 8.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 19.0 minutes during his six-year NBA career with the Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers. Selected 32nd overall in the 2016 NBA Draft, Zubac ranks fourth in the NBA in total games played (220) over the past three seasons.
