The Clippers are interested in signing veteran point guard Smush Parker, waived recently by the Miami Heat, for the rest of the season, Clippers sources said.
Parker, 26, played in only nine games with the Heat this season and had been on paid leave since a Nov. 27 incident with a Miami valet parking attendant.
After a long standoff, he was waived Monday.
"We are hoping for something good to happen, but I can't comment on anything further than that," his agent, Billy Ceisler, said.
The two parties have had discussions, but as of Tuesday no deal had been reached.
Parker would probably be signed to the prorated veteran's minimum salary of $1.2 million.
Before signing with Miami, Parker played two seasons with the Lakers, starting during much of his time there and averaging 11.3 points.
