NBA free agency: Clippers will re-sign Ryan Hollins

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sport

The Los Angeles Clippers will bring back their reserve big man.

The Los Angeles Clippers, hoping to shore up their frontcourt depth, agreed on Sunday to bring center Ryan Hollins back on a one-year contract, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Hollins played 11 minutes per game in his seventh NBA season but was a valuable defensive force off the bench. He averaged 3.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.6 blocks per game. There's unfinished business in Los Angeles, as Hollins tweeted, and he could have the opportunity to have a bigger role in 2013-14 with only DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin being in the fold to this point.

Playing consistent minutes to begin the year, Hollins fell out of former coach Vinny Del Negro's rotation but made his way back in the final 10 games of the regular season.

This will be Hollins' second stint under head coach Doc Rivers. He played 15 games for the Boston Celtics during the 2011-12 season.

Hollins has career averages of 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.

He made $854,000 last season.
