Lakers Agree To Four-Year, $50 Million Deal With Jordan Clarkson

The Los Angeles Lakers were able to reach an agreement with Jordan Clarkson just hours after free agency began

The Los Angeles Lakers had a busy start to free agency.

Just minutes after the clock hit midnight in New York, the Lakers were talking to Timofey Mozgov and agreed to a four-year, $64 million deal within the hour.

Then, once the dust had settled on that move, the purple and gold locked up Jordan Clarkson, too.

The two sides agreed to a four-year, $50 million contract, according to Shams Charania from The Vertical:

The contract has no options, per Charania.

The Lakers selected Clarkson with the 46th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft after buying the selection from the Washington Wizards.

Last season, the now 24-year-old Clarkson averaged 15.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 32.3 minutes per game.
