Los Angeles Clippers big man Ivica Zubac has agreed on a three-year, $33 million extension, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Clippers will reportedly decline their $7.5 million option for the 2022-23 season to pave way for the deal. Zubac had been set to hit unrestricted free agency for the first time in his career next offseason, assuming the Clippers picked up that team option for the final season of a four-year, $28 million extension he signed in 2019.

Playing a career-high 24.4 minutes per game last season, Zubac also averaged career highs in points (10.3), rebounds (8.5), assists (1.6) and blocks (1.0) per game. The Clippers were 40-36 when Zubac suited up as he aided the team in achieving their 11th consecutive winning season. He turned 25 in March.

It has already been a busy offseason for the Clippers, who are expected to sign former All-Star point guard John Wall in free agency and have already signed forward Robert Covington to a two-year, $24 million extension. Veteran forward Nicolas Batum, one of the team’s most important players last season, and back-up center Isaiah Hartenstein will both hit free agency.
