Former K-State player and current Miami Heat guard Rodney McGruder plays in the first half of an NBA basketball game Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016, in Denver.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations says Rodney McGruder will be signing a three-year deal worth roughly $15 million with the Los Angeles Clippers.

McGruder tweeted his excitement about the news Tuesday night.

“I am thankful for all of my family, friends and fans for supporting me through my journey!!” McGruder wrote. “CLIPPER NATION LET’S GET IT!!”

He agreed to the deal on Tuesday and had entered the offseason with the expectation that he was staying with the Clippers, a source told the Associated Press.

Yahoo Sports first reported the agreement.

McGruder started his NBA career with Miami, which waived him near the end of last season in a move designed to help the Heat avoid the luxury tax. The Clippers claimed him off waivers and he was around the team throughout its playoff run, though he was not eligible for the postseason roster.
