Harkless, 27, turned down more lucrative deals for a chance to play a prominent role with the defending Eastern Conference champions and ultimately re-enter a more “cash-flushed” free agent marketplace in 2021, Wojnarowski notes.

Last season, in 62 total games for the Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks, Harkless averaged 5.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.

Harkless, a solid perimeter defender, will likely fill the spot left by Derrick Jones Jr., who agreed to a two-year, $19 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers.
