Hollins, who has been connected to the Clippers on the rumor mill for weeks, will likely join the squad for the league minimum. The 27 year-old seven-footer from Pasadena and UCLA has played with the Bobcats, Mavericks, Timberwolves, Cavaliers, and Celtics in his six-year career, appearing in 314 career games.
A player of Hollins' level will likely join the team for the league minimum, meaning that the Clippers still have two trade exceptions to use: 2.8 from Aminu, and 1.2 from Cook.
Hollins is the 12th member of the Clippers roster, and since the team normally likes to carry 14 into opening night, they are by no means done. Expect to see the last two spots filled with another big (Hilton Armstrong) and a shooter from the wing (Adam Morrison).
