Patrick Beverley wants to get paid

Clippers, Patrick Beverley

Now that the 2018-19 season has come to an end, several players around the league have their sights set on free agency, including L.A. Clippers guard Patrick Beverley, who is reportedly looking to get paid.

Beverley, now 30 years of age, just wrapped up the final season of his four-year, $25 million contract with the Clippers. Now, with free agency on the horizon, the former University of Arkansas standout is ready to explore his options. His main goal, however, is taking care of his family.

“How are you feeling about this free agency situation?” a reporter from TMZ asked Beverley during an impromptu interview at LAX.

“It’s lit,” Beverley replied. “I’m excited.”

“What’s your thought process going into this free agency period?” the reporter asked Beverley.

“Securing my family’s future,” Beverley replied.

One team that is said to have interest in acquiring Beverley is the Los Angeles Lakers, who recently traded for All-Star forward Anthony Davis.

Beverley knows that the Lakers will be a formidable team next season, but he would not reveal his true level of interest in joining LeBron and A.D.

“Are you excited for the Lakers’ chances next season?” the reporter asked Beverley.

“Oh, for sure. They’ve got Anthony Davis and LeBron James,” Beverley replied. “They’ve made themselves a very exciting team.”

Though he was keeping a tight lip during his interview with TMZ, Beverley seems to be open to the idea of joining the Lakers. In fact, he actually replied to a fan on Twitter who wrote that the LakeShow is waiting for him.

Beverley would be a fine addition to any team’s rotation. He made 78 appearances with the Clippers during the 2018-19 regular season campaign (49 starts), racking up averages of 7.6 points on 40.7 percent shooting from the field (39.7 percent from beyond the arc), 5.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and just under one steal (0.9) in 27.4 minutes per outing.

Exactly where Beverley will be playing next season is still up for debate. One thing is sure, though: he’s set on securing a bag.
