Clippers agree to terms with Patrick Patterson

The L.A. Clippers have signed free agent forward Patrick Patterson, the team announced.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, it’s a one-year, $2.3 million deal.

Earlier this month, Patterson and the Thunder agreed to a buyout.  Patterson had one year left on the three-year, $16.4 million deal he signed with OKC in 2017.

Last season, the 30-year-old Patterson appeared in 63 games for the Oklahoma City Thunder, averaging 3.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.7 minutes.

The 6’9″, 230-pound forward holds career averages of 6.9 points and 4.1 rebounds, while shooting 45.0 percent from the field in 21.8 minutes in nine seasons with Houston, Sacramento, Toronto, and Oklahoma City.

Patterson is another guy that can help bolster the Clippers’ bench as this team prepares to make a run at an NBA title next season.
