Patrick Beverley Biography Details, Age, Net Worth, and Basketball Career

Patrick Beverley is an experienced, well-rounded veteran NBA player whose toughness, defense, and shooting has made him an important part of several very successful teams. Currently with the Los Angeles Clippers, the point guard was drafted first by the Lakers but played in Europe without ever being called to the Lakers’ NBA roster. His first NBA contract came with the Houston Rockets, where he quickly earned a starting spot and contributed greatly to the rise of the Rockets teams built around James Harden.

Traded to the Clippers as part of the Chris Paul trade, Beverley again made himself an essential part of the team. The team outperformed expectations for several seasons, and Beverley was an important role player of the 2019-2020 team that looked like a genuine contender prior to the season’s suspension.
