The Los Angeles Clippers attempted to shore up their front court depth on Monday by announcing the signing of former UCLA Bruins center Ryan Hollins. The 7'0" big man was a part of the Bruins' Final Four team in 2006, and has spent six years in the NBA.
Hollins averaged 3.4 points and 2.1 rebounds per contest in 39 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics. In the playoffs with the Celtics, Hollins averaged 1.5 points and 1.6 rebounds per game in 17 postseason contests.
The 27-year old center while at UCLA blocked 101 shots, the fourth most in school history, and was drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats in the second round of the 2006 NBA Draft, with the 50th overall pick. Hollins' finest NBA season came in 2009-2010 with the Minnesota Timberwolves, when he averaged 6.1 points and 2.8 rebounds in 73 games.
In six NBA seasons Hollins has averaged 4.2 points and 2.3 rebounds, in 13.0 minutes per contest. The Clippers are his fifth NBA team.
