The Los Angeles Clippers have not picked up their third-year option on the contract of Mfiondu Kabengele.

Kabengele was the only 2019 first round pick not to have his option picked up for 21-22. Kabengele was set to earn $2.1 million.

The Clippers traded a 2020 first-round pick to Brooklyn to move up and take Kabengele 27th overall in 2019.

“He’s very versatile, can shoot the basketball, talks a lot on the defensive end, which we need to get better at and improve at,” Tyronn Lue said this month. “Just having him around, the way he talks and the way he gets along with everybody on the floor, it’s contagious.”
