According to Shams Charania of RealGM, the Clippers have reached a contract agreement with Josh Smith. The Clippers can only use the minimum salary to sign players at this point, meaning that Smith likely took a significant cut from what he could have gotten to return in Houston.
While remaining infamous among Clippers fans for his role in the team's elimination just a few months ago, it's undeniable that Smith's a very talented player to have on the second unit, especially if Doc Rivers can wrangle him into attempting less threes.
