The Clippers and free-agent center Byron Mullens reached agreement on a two-year contract Saturday, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Mullens deal is worth about 1 million per season. He can opt out of the contract after one season.
Mullens is expected to sign his contract with the Clippers on Monday or Tuesday.
The 7-foot Mullens averaged 10.6 points and 6.4 rebounds per game last season with Charlotte. He shot 38.5 percent from the field, 31.7 percent from three-point range.
Adding Mullens gives the Clippers three centers; DeAndre Jordan and Ryan Hollins are the other two.
That means the Clippers probably won't be interested in signing free-agent center Marcus Camby, the NBA executives said.
The Clippers now have a 13-man roster.

Charlotte Bobcats: Best and Worst Moves of the Off Season
By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/HoopStuff
Best Move: Drafting Cody Zeller (4th Overall)
- Many were surprised when the Bobcats drafted Zeller over “better” big man prospects, like Nerlens Noel and Alex Len, as well as two guard, Ben McLemore, but Zeller is an underrated player. He was overrated for so long that he...
Lamar Odom doesn’t want to be on reality TV anymore. In yet another example of be careful what you wish for, looks like LO is burned out on appearing as part of the Kardashian family business. Per Radar online, the ex- Clipper/Laker has let Kris Jenner know his days in front of the camera are over.

It's been nearly 19 days into July, and over the course of roughly 4 weeks, the Bobcats have seen an incredible amount of change. Coaches have changed, Al Jefferson signed a pretty big deal here, and there was a lot of confusion/uneasy/downright anger surrounding the pick of Cody Zeller. So it only makes sense that fans should be looking at the Las Vegas Summer League with a...

Yesterday in Las Vegas a vote on giving back the Hornets team name back to Charlotte was a unanimous yes. Everyone from the NBA Board of Governors approved that vote. So say good bye to the Bobcats name after next season.
Michael Jordan who is the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats is very excited to bring back the original team name to Charlotte.
Jordan said, “We’re thrilled to...
There’s nothing like having a pro basketball player with an elite pedigree join your basketball team. That is, unless they’re one of Michael Jordan’s sons or one of the many, many spawns of pro players that simply don’t live up to their last name. But that shouldn’t stop the Charlotte Bobcats from giving Patrick Ewing [...]
