Memphis Grizzlies forward Brandon Clarke has agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract extension, his agents, Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of Priority Sports, told ESPN on Sunday.

Clarke landed on a deal ahead of Monday's 6 p.m. ET deadline for rookie scale deals for members of the 2019 draft class and becomes yet another key Grizzlies player to secure an extension.

Clarke, 26, has become an integral player off the Grizzlies' bench. As Memphis won 56 games and earned a No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs a season ago, Clarke ranked in the top five in the NBA in several categories, including second-chance points, paint points and offensive rebounds, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

In his three NBA seasons, Clarke has averaged 10.9 points on 59% shooting.

Clarke's offensive rebounding was essential to Memphis' postseason success, his 3.1 average the most for any player with a minimum of 10 games, per ESPN Stats & Information.

Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., Steven Adams and John Konchar have agreed on extensions with Memphis over the past two years.
