Report: Clippers near agreement to sign Byron Mullens
Free-agent center Byron Mullens is reportedly set to sign with the Clippers.
Mullens started 41 games for the Bobcats last year, averaging 11 points and six rebounds per game with a 12.3 PER. He goes from a part-time starter with the Bobcats to being the end-of-the-bench big for the Clippers, which says a lot about both organizations. It's actually a smart move by the Clippers, who need another big badly, and Mullens has height and a little bit of skill. He's undeniably an upgrade over Ronny Turiaf, who departed in free agency.
The move also likely paves the way for the Lakers to sign Lamar Odom. Both LA teams had been talking to Odom and Mullens.
