The Los Angeles Clippers will have several options in the paint this season.

NBA journeyman Ronny Turiaf has agreed to a one-year, veteran's minimum contract of $1.146 million with the Clippers, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times' Broderick Turner. He'll be the fifth big man on the team's roster along with Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Lamar Odom and Ryan Hollins.

Turiaf comes to the Clippers after spending last season with the NBA champions Miami Heat. He appeared in nearly as many playoff games (12) as regular season games (13) for the Heat, and he averaged 1.9 points and 2.6 rebounds per playoff contest.
