Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, forward Patrick Patterson and the Oklahoma City Thunder agreed to a buyout. Patterson was on the last year of his deal with $5.7 million still owed to him. Wojnarowski also said Patterson plans on joining the Los Angeles Clippers after he clears waivers.

Patterson, 30, was the 14th-overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft by the Houston Rockets. Patterson spent almost three seasons in Houston before being traded to the Sacramento Kings. After the Kings, Patterson spent time with the Toronto Raptors and the Thunder.

Patterson has appeared in 622 NBA regular season games, averaging 6.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 21.8 minutes played per game. Patterson also has played in 47 playoff games and averaged 6.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 24.1 minutes played per game.

The buyout with Patterson and the Thunder might stem from the trading of Paul George and Russell Westbrook as Oklahoma is now considered to be in rebuild mode. Patterson will be joining George in Los Angeles along with Kawhi Leonard. Many people in and around the league see the Clippers as the favorites to win the NBA championship in the 2019-2020 season.
