Free-agent forward Hedo Turkoglu is nearing agreement on a one-year, $1.4 million deal to return to the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

After working out a contract buyout with the Orlando Magic and signing with the Clippers in January, Turkoglu, 35, averaged three points in 38 games.

Once a tremendously versatile and productive offensive player, Turkoglu's talent has declined significantly but he remains a serviceable veteran in limited minutes.

This will be Turkoglu's 15th season in the NBA. He's averaged 11.5 points and four rebounds across stops in Sacramento, San Antonio, Orlando, Toronto and Phoenix.

The Clippers also have brought back veteran forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis for its bench.
