Robert Covington has agreed to a two-year, $24 million extension with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Under collective bargaining rules, Covington was eligible to re-sign with the Clippers for a maximum of two years before the start of free agency in July. The Clippers' projected luxury tax bill for next season increases from $17.8 million to $54.9 million with Covington's new deal.
The Clippers traded for Covington in February as part of an acquisition for Norman Powell.
For his career, Covington has averaged 11.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.0 block per game.
