LA Clippers guard Terance Mann agrees to two-year, $22 million contract extension

Los Angeles Clippers guard Terance Mann has agreed to a two-year, $22 million contract extension, ESPN's The Undefeated has learned.

Mann averaged 7.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists last season primarily as a reserve for the Clippers, but offered a big lift in the postseason as they advanced to the Western Conference Finals after Kawhi Leonard was injured. Mann has two years paying $1.78 million and $1.9 million, respectively.

The 6-foot-5, 205-pounder's contract extension is fully guaranteed. Mann also recently signed a multiyear contract with the Chinese shoe company Anta.

"It is with tremendous honor and pride that I sign this extension with the Clippers," Mann told The Undefeated in a statement. "The faith and commitment in my development and contribution thus far will provide me the motivation I need as I continue to be a pivotal part of our championship run. I want to thank the front office for this opportunity to remain a part of the Clipper Nation. I would also like to thank my coaches and teammates for believing me and allowing me to grow both on and off the court."

The Clippers drafted the former Florida State star with the 48th overall pick in the second round of the 2019 NBA draft.

"He deserves it," Clippers coach Ty Lue said Tuesday. "When you get a guy like Terance who grinds his way to where he is at today, all the hard work he put in from being a point guard his first year to playing the five last year, making seven 3's in a close-out game, you're just happy for guys when they get paid, they get a chance and opportunity to play in this league for a long time. He definitely deserves it."
