LA Clippers center Ivica Zubac has agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract extension, his agents Jeff Schwartz and Excel Sports’ Mike Lindeman told ESPN on Tuesday.
The Clippers declined a $7.5 million team option on Zubac’s contract, clearing the way to negotiate a new deal for Zubac, who is the longest-serving player on the roster. Zubac, 25, is a frontcourt presenter in a starry Clippers roster that is expected to be in contention for an NBA championship next season.
Zubac had his most productive NBA season for the Clippers a year ago — averaging career bests of 10.3 points and 8.5 rebounds. In his fourth season with the Clippers after coming over from the Lakers in a trade, Zubac started in 76 games a season ago.
Zubac is the second Clipper to sign an extension since the end of the season, joining forward Robert Covington. Zubac has averaged 8.3 points and 6.5 rebounds over his seven-year NBA career.
