The Clippers are not done trying to make their team better yet.

They plan to have free-agent guard Jamal Crawford in for a visit Tuesday at the team’s practice facility, according to sources who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

The Clippers plan to offer Crawford the mid-level exception that starts at $5 million. The Clippers are willing to offer Crawford, a 6-foot-5 guard, at least a three-year deal, sources said.

The Clippers also are planning to offer a contract to Chauncey Billups, sources said. Billups, who is recovering from a torn left Achilles’ tendon injury, will get a one-year offer from the Clippers for about $4 million, sources said.

After getting backup big man Lamar Odom from the Dallas Mavericks in a trade that sent Mo Williams to the Utah Jazz, the Clippers are also trying to sign reserve center Ryan Hollins.

Hollins, a 7-footer who went to UCLA, can be offered the bi-annual exception that starts at $1.9 million or the veteran’s minimum.
