The Los Angeles Clippers have signed free agent forward-center Ekpe Udoh to a one-year deal paying $1 million, a league source told Yahoo Sports.

Udoh averaged 3.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and one block with the Milwaukee Bucks last season. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls and Sacramento Kings also expressed interest in Udoh, but the source said he was attracted to playing for Clippers coach Doc Rivers in a winning organization and on a team with a defensive mentality.

Along with Udoh, the Clippers also signed forward-center Spencer Hawes and re-signed forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis to play behind All-Star Blake Griffin and center DeAndre Jordan.
