Report: Clippers Sign Spencer Hawes

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

According to Yahoo! Sports, the Clippers have reached an agreement with big man Spencer Hawes.

Per Woj, the Clippers have agreed to terms with free agent center Spencer Hawes:

Hawes is a stretch big man who has shot 36% from three over the course of his career.  However, that percentage has been improving as he's developed, and has been over 40% each of the last season.

Unlike a lot of other stretch bigs, however, Hawes has still been able to rebound at a solid rate, averaging 9.6 rebounds per 36 last season.  He also averaged 3.5 assists per 36, very good for a center.  1.5 Blocks per 36 is another very solid number for the newest Clipper.

The 26-year-old 7-footer has played nearly exclusively center in his 7 years of NBA experience, but one would assume that he will also play some PF alongside DeAndre Jordan.

The reported value of the deal is $23 million over four years, which is the value of the Clippers' full mid-level exception.  Overall, he will make $5,305,000 in 2014-15, $5,543,725 in 2015-16, $5,782,450 in 2016-17, and $6,021,175 in 2017-18, making for a total of $22,652,350 over the four seasons.  It's unclear at this time if there are any options or guarantees on the deal.
