The Clippers have signed center Marreese Speights, reports The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Speights confirmed the news to TNT’s David Aldridge. The Clippers will sign Speights for the veteran minimum, ESPN’s Zach Lowe reports. The contract is a multi-year deal, reports The Undefeated.

Speights averaged 7.1 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in 72 appearances for the Warriors last season, shooting a career-high 38.7% from three. Speights was a member of the Warriors’ championship-winning team in 2015, and has also played for the 76ers, Grizzlies, and Cavaliers.

The Clippers were in the market for a backup center after the departure of Cole Aldrich, who signed a three-year deal with the Timberwolves.
