After losing two key big men on the first day of NBA free agency, the LA Clippers bounced back Saturday.

Free agent Serge Ibaka plans to sign a two-year, $19 million deal with Clippers, a source told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal will include a player option in the second year, the source said.

Ibaka is a critical acquisition for the Clippers, who lost Montrezl Harrell and JaMychal Green to their two biggest Western Conference competitors on the first day of free agency.

Harrell, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, stunned many by moving down the Staples Center hallway and agreeing to join the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers on what agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports told Wojnarowski is a two-year deal worth approximately $19 million. And Green, a significant piece of the Clippers’ rotation, agreed to a two-year, $15 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, a league source confirmed to ESPN.
