Los Angeles Clippers big man Ivica Zubac was the victim of a home invasion on Friday night, according to TMZ Sports. The Croatian center returned to his home around midnight that evening to find a ladder placed against his home. He witnessed two men take off from the scene.

The men hopped a fence and left the property. They have not been apprehended as of now. Zubac notified the police of the incident immediately. The police arrived and made sure there were no stragglers and that it was safe for Zubac to continue his normal life.

The house was ransacked by the intruders. They left with a Rolex watch valued at over $20,000. The home is equipped with a security system, so there may be footage of the crooks.

Ivica Zubac was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 32nd pick of the 2nd round in 2016. Scouts were intrigued by his massive height and wingspan, as he is listed at seven feet tall. Still only 24 years old, he joined the Clippers in 2019 and has been with the team since.

This season, Zubac is averaging 9.8 points per game to go along with 7.8 rebounds. At his age, he’s still got a lot of development to do. He could be one of the emerging stars among the current crop of young NBA centers.

Ivica Zubac and the Clippers currently sit at a decent 8-5 on the young season. They will take on the San Antonio Spurs tonight. Zubac will be one of the centerpieces for the club in what looks like a tight playoff race in the Western Conference.
