PLAYERS: Reggie Evans
TEAMS: Toronto Raptors
The Clippers are close to signing veteran free agent forwardcenter Reggie Evans to a one-year deal for about 1.3 million, according to a basketball executive who was not authorized to speak publicly about the deal. Evans, 31, has played for four teams over nine seasons in the NBA. The Clippers were looking for a rugged backup big man to come off the bench. Evans is not known as an offensive threat, but he is a strong rebounder and sets good screens. Last season the 6-foot-8 Evans averaged 4.4 points and 11.5 rebounds a game with Toronto. The offer is contingent on Evans passing a physical. Broderick Turner
