NBA's reigning Sixth Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell is reportedly on the verge of joining the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the former Clippers big man is signing with the Lakers for two years, $19 million. 

Prior to Friday's development, Harrell was the Clippers' spark plug off the bench, averaging more than 18 points and about 7 rebounds per game in the 2019-2020 season. After a successful 2019-2020 regular season, Harrell was named the league's most outstanding player as a player coming off the bench.


Following the reports of the signing, Clippers guard Patrick Beverly appears to not be happy about his now-former teammate switching locker rooms at Staples Center.
