The Los Angeles Clippers have closed the extension of Terance Mann’s contract for two years and a total of 22 million dollars, as reported the middle ESPN.
This agreement automatically exercises the team option contemplated for the 2022-23 academic year. Thus, Mann’s new contract will be effective from the 2023-24 season, in which he will collect 10.5 million. Both years will be fully guaranteed.
The Los Angeles franchise selected the former Florida State University student in the 48th position in the 2019 draft. In his first two seasons, he has followed an upward line that the organization hopes to maintain with this new agreement. Mann closed the 2020-21 season with numbers of 7.0 points and 3.6 rebounds. These increased to 12.6 points in the eight games after Kawhi Leonard’s injury in the playoffs.
“It is a tremendous honor and pride to sign this extension with the Clippers,” said Mann for The Undefeated it’s a statement. “Faith and commitment in my development and contribution will provide me with the motivation I need while remaining an important part of our championship race. I want to thank the organization for this opportunity to continue being part of the Clipper Nation. I would also like to thank my coaches and teammates for believing in me and allowing me to grow both on and off the court. “
