Skilled big man Montrezl Harrell, who has agreed to a two-year deal worth $19 million with the Los Angeles Lakers, spoke with the media yesterday for the first time since leaving the Clippers.

The reigning 6th man of the year said joining the Lakers was a quote ‘business decision,’ and when he was asked if the Clippers wanted him back, he replied ‘Obviously it doesn’t seem that way, does it?’
