Video: Newest Lakers forward Montrezl Harrell reveals if Clippers wanted him back

Montrezl Harrell

The Los Angeles Lakers have made a lot of offseason splashes over the last week, but the biggest was arguably the acquisition of reigning Sixth Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell.

Harrell won’t have to go far to join his new team. In fact, he won’t have to go anywhere at all. That’s because he left the Los Angeles Clippers to join the Purple and Gold.

While speaking to members of the press on Monday, Harrell discussed whether or not his former team wanted to keep him.

Given Harrell’s response, it seems as though a lack of desire from the Clippers may be a sore subject for the talented big man.

Luckily, Harrell will get the chance to exact his revenge against his former team on multiple occasions next season.

Last year, the 6-foot-7 forward averaged 18.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. He shot an impressive 58.0 percent from the field.

He’ll look to put all that production to good use when he seeks to help the Lakers defend their 2020 NBA championship.
