"Spencer Hawes agreed to a four-year, $23 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, Yahoo Sports reported Thursday. It represents a slight pay cut from the $6.6 million he earned last season with the Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers.

Hawes joined the Cavs at the trade deadline last season in exchange for two second-round picks. He averaged 13.5 points and 7.7 rebounds in 27 games with the Cavs while making 45 percent of his 3-point attempts.

Hawes entered free agency with a preference to return to the West Coast and he got his wish, joining a Clippers team that won its division and advanced to the Western Conference semifinals last season."
