Free agent big man Serge Ibaka has decided on his next destination. He is leaving the Toronto Raptors to sign a two-year, $19 million contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. He can continue playing both power forward and center for his new team and was one of the most versatile frontcourt players on the free agency market.

Ibaka was an important contributor for the Raptors on both sides of the ball after being traded by the Orlando Magic in 2016. His rim protection and ability to stretch the floor by making midrange shots and threes gave Toronto plenty of options on offense. His skill set was enticing enough to earn him a three-year deal worth $65 million for his last contract. The 31-year-old has plenty left in the tank and averaged a career high 15.2 points in last season.
