Los Angeles Clippers have re-signed free-agent forward Montrezl Harrell as they bolster their attacking options.

Having averaged 11 points and 4 rebounds in 76 games last season while shooting 63 percent from the floor, the Clippers were impressed.

It is reported that the Clippers acquired Harrell in June 2017 as part of the blockbuster deal that sent All-Star guard Chris Paul to Houston Rockets.

Moreover, Harrell spent most of the last term as a back-up for All-Star centre DeAndre Jordan, who left this summer for Dallas Mavericks as a free agent.

Meanwhile, the terms of the deal were not announced Tuesday, but speculation is that the 24-year-old has signed a $12 million deal that will see him in LA through the 2019/20 season, according to a news outlet.

“Montrezl is a tough, hard-playing, gritty competitor who is committed to winning,” said Clippers’ Lawrence Frank.

“We love his passion and energy, and are very excited to have Trezz back in a Clippers uniform.”

With the resigning of Harrell, the Clippers have a bevy of options in the front court as there are currently 12 players on the roster listed as either forwards or centres.
