Welcome to Hollywood, Byron. Sources have told ESPNLosAngeles.com that the Los Angeles Clippers have signed center Byron Mullens to a two-year deal reportedly worth $2 million dollars. The 24-year-old Mullens played for the woeful Charlotte Bobcats last season, averaging 10.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists (his career per-game averages: 8.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1 assist). Mullens also shot 31.7 percent from three last year, impressive considering his seven-foot frame.

Mullens was one of the top recruits in the country when he came out of high school in 2008. He played his first two NBA seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder, barely cracking 5 minutes a game. After being traded to the Bobcats in 2011, Mullens received more playing time and saw his numbers drastically improve.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers certainly has some experience with Mullens. The center had a great stat-line of 25 points, 18 rebounds and 4 assists in a game against the Boston Celtics last season. Mullens is expected to be the first big man off the bench next year.

The Clippers have certainly had a busy offseason, already having signed JJ Redick, Jared Dudley, and Darren Collison.
