Report: 2020 Sixth Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell set to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers

Montrezl Harrell is the newest member of the Los Angeles Lakers according to reports from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Harrell became one of the most coveted unrestricted free agents when the LA Clippers saw their season come to an abrupt end at the hands of the Denver Nuggets in the second round of the playoffs.

Harrell had a career-year in 2019-20 averaging 18.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks shooting 58.0 percent from the field. His efforts earned him the Sixth Man of the Year award.

Wojnarowski has reported the Lakers will use the mid level exception to make up the 2-year, $19 million deal.

Harrell foreshadowed an interesting start to free agency when he tweeted "Today will be really interesting!" on Friday morning.

His mentions were then filled with rival fans hoping that the 26-year-old North Carolina native would choose their favourite teams, but Harrell ultimately took his talents to LA.

NBA.com's Scott Rafferty had Harrell ranked as the fifth-best free agent in the class.

Deals can only be agreed upon in principle until Nov. 22 at 12:01 p.m. (ET) when they can be signed and made official.
