Luc Richard Mbah A Moute RumorsAll NBA Players
“Luc is the ultimate professional” said Frank. “He is a very smart player and an outstanding defender who leads by example and provides a strong cultural presence in the locker room. Luc is a class act that we welcome back to the Clippers.”
Free agent forward Luc Mbah a Moute has agreed to a one-year, $4.3 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told ESPN. The Clippers are paying Mbah a Moute the balance of their mid-level exception, bringing him back to the franchise after a season away with the Houston Rockets.
The signing of Luc Mbah a Moute now has the Clippers with 14 guaranteed contracts and 3 players, Milos Teodosic, Patrick Beverley and CJ Williams that are partially/non-guaranteed. The $6.3M ($2.1M guaranteed) Teodosic contract becomes guaranteed if the guard is not waived by July 15. Los Angeles now has $118M in salary, $5.7M below the tax with restricted free agent Montrezl Harrell unsigned. The Clippers are also $11.8M below the hard cap.
David Aldridge: Rockets became a top three defense last season in large part b/c of their ability to switch everything on the perimeter with P.J. Tucker, Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute. The latter two are gone after Mbah a Moute’s one year, $4.3M deal with the Clippers today (@Adrian Wojnarowski first).
