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.
