LA Clippers Re-sign Amir Coffey
The LA Clippers have re-signed free agent Amir Coffey, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.
“Amir joined our organization as an undrafted free agent and has turned himself into a reliable and versatile two-way wing,” said Frank. “He is an important part of our present and future, as well as an example to all our young players. He put in the work and is reaping the rewards.”
Coffey, 25, appeared in 69 games (30 starts) and averaged career-highs in points (9.0), rebounds (2.9) and assists (1.8). On April 10 against Oklahoma City, Coffey became the eighth player in franchise history to register at least 35 points, 13 rebounds and five assists in a game. The 6-foot-7 forward has appeared in 131 NBA games and owns career averages of 6.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 16.2 minutes over the past three seasons with the Clippers.
A native of Hopkins, Minn., Coffey spent three years at the University of Minnesota, where he earned Big Ten All-Freshman honors (2017) and an All-Big Ten Third Team selection (2019).
