The center is one more addition for the Clippers in a summer of deals that included re-signing All-Star Chris Paul and acquiring guards J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley via trade.

Mullens, 24, averaged 10.4 points and 6.4 rebounds for the Charlotte Bobcats a year ago. Mullens can play forward and center for the Clippers. In four NBA seasons, including two with Oklahoma City and two with Charlotte, Mullens averaged 8.4 points and 4.8 rebounds a game.

Mullens was the 24th overall pick in the 2009 draft, leaving Ohio State after his freshman season.
