The Clippers fight for Serge Ibaku and Mark Gasol
The Clippers have entered the fight for free agents Serge Ibaku (31, 208 cm) and Mark Gasol (35, 216), according to The New York Times insider Mark Stein.
Gasol is seen as a more realistic target given the fierce competition for Ibaku with Toronto and Brooklyn.
According to league sources, the Lakers also intend to sign another big man, but have much tighter financial constraints following the acquisition of Montrez Harrell and the signing of a new deal with Kentavius Caldwell-Pope.
Ibaka and Gasol played together for Toronto and won the 2019 league title.
