The Los Angeles Clippers have signed free-agent forward Chuck Hayes to a one-year contract, a source told Yahoo Sports.

Hayes, 32, has averaged 3.7 points and five rebounds per game during his 10-year NBA career. He played sparingly for the Toronto Raptors last season. The brawny 6-foot-6, 242-pounder originally committed to sign with the Houston Rockets this offseason, but his agent Calvin Andrews said last week the franchise reneged on the offer because of limited roster flexibility and other financial considerations.

The veteran-laden Clippers' roster also includes such big men as All-Star Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and newcomers Josh Smith and Cole Aldrich.
