Clippers’ Tobias Harris Explains Why He Turned Down Contract Extension

Published

on

Los Angeles Clippers forward Tobias Harris turned down a contract extension offer from the team over the summer, one that was a four-year, $80 million contract offer, willing to bet on himself in free agency next summer.

“For myself and my representation, we looked at it. We did really process it to make that decision,” Harris said, according to Jovan Buha of The Athletic. “At the end of the day, it is $80 million. But for me, it’s more of going out and earning what my value is. It has nothing to do with me figuring out what the Clippers are doing or things like that.”

“No, I love the whole organization. I love the team. I hope this relationship that we have is long-lasting. But it’s more of just on myself as a player, just pushing myself to see where I’m at at the end of the year. And we’ll go from there. That’s where it was. Both sides, we talked about it and both sides had really good dialogue on that. So it wasn’t nothing. We really were thankful that offer was there.”

Harris is likely seeking a max contract offer from the Clippers, or a more lucrative offer elsewhere next summer, and will have this upcoming season to make his case that he is worth every penny of such a lucrative offer.
