MONDAY, 1:25pm: The Clippers have officially signed Hollins, the team announced today in a press release.
THURSDAY, 4:34pm: Free agent Ryan Hollins has verbally agreed to join the Clippers, according to agent Todd Ramasar on Twitter. Earlier today it was reported that Los Angeles reached out to Hollins in hopes of securing a backup big man for the minimum salary.
The 27-year-old was waived by the Cavs in late March and promptly picked up by the Celtics. In 39 games last year, Hollins averaged 13.4 minutes per contest and put up 3.4 PPG and 2.1 RPG. While he has always shown promise as an athletic big, Hollins' inability to rebound was rather apparent in his time with Cleveland and Boston.
