The Clippers agreed on a new contract with Jerry West

Jerry-West

The Free Agency is likely to become one of the most significant in the franchise history of the Los Angeles Clippers. LA is likely to be one of the hottest FA patches in the entire association - in the summer when every superstar is free agent: Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, Kemba Walker, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, etc.

The Clippers have paid around $ 46 million in guaranteed salaries for the 2019-20 season, of which Danilo Gallinari (22.6 million) collects almost half, while also entering his final contract year. Also, the duo Williams-Harrell will earn 14 million in the next season, Shamet, Robinson, and SGA are still under their rookie contracts anyway. Clippers announced that they will continue their close collaboration with Jerry West and have reached an agreement with their advisor. The Hall of Famer will support the Clippers in a groundbreaking summer.

As Shams Charania of The Athletic reports, his contract expired, and owner Steve Ballmer recently led talks with the 80-year-old about the continuation of the cooperation - with a successful outcome.
