Patrick Beverley has made a career out of scrapping for everything he earns. It paid off early Monday morning (Tuesday, PHL time) when he confirmed reports of his return to the Clippers for a three-year, $40 million contract.
Beverley served as a veteran leader and defensive pest for the Clippers, who defied expectations en route to 48 wins and taking the Warriors to six games in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. The former second-round pick averaged 7.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists last season, his seventh in the NBA and second with LA.
