The Clippers have several ways to complete the deal, including through a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns or using its bi-annual exception.

The Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks had recruited Hill heavily to sign with them, but Hill decided on the Clippers and was finalizing terms of a deal on Tuesday, sources said.

Hill averaged 10 points, three rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes a game for the Suns a year ago, and joins an upgraded roster that includes recent additions Jamal Crawford and Lamar Odom.

Hill will turn 40 prior to the start of the 2012-13 season.
