The rich get richer in the NBA, and that was proven when the Los Angeles Lakers signed Montrezl Harrell in one of the most shocking moves so far this offseason.
Harrell was named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year this past season, averaging 18.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game for the Los Angeles Clippers. The Lakers gave Harrell a two-year deal worth $19 million. The second year of that deal is a player option.
Shortly after the deal was announced, Harrell tweeted “It’s family ties #B4L to the grave.”
Harrell could help the Lakers potentially win back-to-back titles, especially after the team lost Dwight Howard in free agency to the 76ers.
