The Clippers signed Paul George to a 3+1 contract extension last offseason. They signed Kawhi Leonard to a 3+1 deal this summer.

Now, the Clippers lock up the 2019 acquisition who led them into their first conference finals in franchise history.

Terance Mann – the No. 48 pick in the 2019 draft – signed a two-year, $22 million extension.

Mann was already under contract the next two year for a minimum salary, the second season following a team option. Crucially, the Clippers got Mann to agree to the extension beginning in 2023 rather than replacing the team-option season in 2022.

Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times:

Mann bet against himself with a four-year cheap contract as a rookie. Turning 25 next week, he was somewhat pressed to take this team-friendly extension because it’s tough to turn down the first opportunity at such significant money.

Maybe he would’ve gotten more in 2022 or 2023 free agency. He has developed into a helpful wing – an athletic hustle player and solid 3-point shooter.

But there would have been no assurances if Mann rejected this extension.

So, the Clippers get a bargain as they reinforce their supporting cast while waiting for Leonard to return, and Mann gets financial security.
