Huge get for Clippers. Ibaka obviously had no hard feelings about Kawhi bailing on the Raptors after stringing them along the whole process.

Exactly what they needed to take on guys like Davis and Jokic in the west. He's closer to the end of his career than the beginning, but he's smart, and he can block shots inside and hit shots outside. A+.

Big time signing for LAC that they badly needed.

Clips just upgraded their backup Guard and Center slot, while picking up four future seconds and an interesting C prospect along with Scrubb.

Love it

It looks like an arms race between LAC, LAL and MKE at this point, Nets need to step up their game.

Best signing of the FA season so far. Huge value on a cheap deal, durations means nothing. LAC needs to have a stellar season to convince both PG13 and Kawhi to resign, Ibaka will be huge in the playoffs.

Really wish Portland could get players of this caliber for this price instead of Derrick Jones Jr.

Great signing. Clippers making up some ground in one big swoop.

Kennard and Ibaka especially are significant additions for the Clippers. Both the Clips and Lakers have had smart off-seasons and gotten better, maybe this year we get the WCF we all thought we would last year. Denver and Utah could have something to say though.

Portland my dark horse this year. They added good defensive depth and more shooting. Nurkic coming back healthy.

While Ibaka might not be as good as Harrell at this point in their careers - he is a better fit on the Clippers roster - where bench depth is a luxury when they had a major hole in their starting lineup/roster in rim protection. The fact that he is also a floor spacer is an added bonus.

The Marcus Morris addition last year made Harrell expendable.

The Clippers have 3 switchable wings (Morris/Leonard/George) with a 3 and D point guard (Pat Bev) and C (Ibaka) and can mix in Lou Wil, Kennard and Zubac.

Losing Harrell off the bench does hurt, but the roster balance with Ibaka helps offset that.

Agree completely, forgot about them. I think they finish between the 3 and 5 seed.

This is a great get. Especially if they can convince him to come off the bench but be in the closing 5.
