Ibaka 2yrs $19 mil, plr option 2nd yr 

We solved our Rubik's Cube:

Problem 1: Ivica Zubac needed more minutes, but Montrezl Harrell needed minutes, too. Neither of them could be on court together as both played center and neither of them had a 3-point shot. Clippers solved this problem by signing Serge Ibaka, who can play both backup C and PF. This means that Zubac and Ibaka can play on the court together.

Problem 2: Clippers had problems with team chemistry. Clippers solved that problem by bringing in Kawhi's former teammate, Serge Ibaka on a discount. No doubt Serge could've received a contract like Marcus Morris, Jr. That still would've been a discount for Toronto. But he decided to play with Kawhi.

Problem 3: We had problems with team chemistry. Clippers solved that problem by watching both Montrezl Harrell and JaMychal Green walk and bringing in Serge Ibaka to replace them. By condensing their two positions into one player, Clippers ended up with a tighter rotation and more flexibility.

Problem 4: We had problems with mobile big men like Anthony Davis, Nikola Jokic, and Kristaps Porzingis. Montrezl Harrell, Marcus Morris, Sr., and JaMychal Green were too short to guard them. That's why I advocated developing Mifiondu Kabengele to be able to guard these guys on the perimeter. Clippers did me one better by bringing in Serge Ibaka, who can already do it on a world class level.

Problem 5: We were a short team. We had 7'0" Ivica Zubac and 6'10" Mfiondu Kabengele. Now, we have 7'0" Ivica Zubac, 7'0" Serge Ibaka, 6'10" Mfiondu Kabengele, and 6'10" Daniel Oturu. That's plenty of beef to pass around.

We still have a point guard issue the FO needs to take care of. Luke Kennard isn't going to solve our guard probelms so they gotta find an upgrade pg to replace PatBev in the starting lineup - needs to be finished before the season starts.

That's a valid point. Very true. Hope the Front Office is gonna make a move to solve the Point Guard issue.
