Capping off a busy weekend of free agency for the Clippers, Ryan Hollins announced on Twitter Sunday morning that he had agreed in principle to a deal to return to Los Angeles next season. ClipperNation we have some unfinished business!!!! Blessed to be back in a @LAClippers uniform! I'm ALLIN Ryan Hollins (@TheRyanHollins) July 7, 2013 Yahoo! Sports first reported the one-year deal. Its terms have not yet been reported, but due to the Clippers' salary cap situation, Hollins' contract cannot be worth more than 1.38 million next season. Hollins, a seven-year veteran center, spent last season with the Clippers. He came off of the bench in the 60 games in which he played, averaging 11.1 minutes, 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds. Hardly the highest-profile player on the team, he did play a solid role as a reserve on a team known for its strong bench play, and his return to the cash-strapped Clippers will be a boost. Hollins grew up in Pasadena and played collegiately at UCLA. He spent part of the 2011-12 season with Doc Rivers's Celtics, and he expressed in June that the Clippers' acquisition of the coach might add to his desire to return. At this point, the Clippers can only offer minimum deals to free agents; they used their mid-level exception on Matt Barnes and Darren Collison earlier in the weekend. However, both Collison and Barnes agreed to contracts for perhaps less than they might have made with other teams, thus displaying that the Clippers have earned a level of cache after two seasons of success, the acquisition of Rivers and the re-signing of Chris Paul.
