The Los Angeles Clippers signed the veteran center to a contract extension on Tuesday. The team did not disclose terms, but multiple reports indicated it was a three-year extension worth $33 million.

“For four seasons, Zu has been a pillar of our team, durable and dependable,” president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said in a news release. “He does whatever is needed: setting screens, rolling to the rim, anchoring the interior of the defense. He is a reliable teammate and a consistent pro, just entering the prime of his career. We are excited to continue growing with him.”

The Clippers previously declined the $7.5 million team option on Zubac’s contract, which paved the way to negotiate a long-term — and more lucrative — deal with the 25-year-old Croatian.

Zubac has mostly been a starter for the Clippers since joining the team in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2019. In four seasons with the Clippers, Zubac has started in 204 of the 246 games he has played.
