As expected, Matt Barnes officially signed with the Clippers on Friday for what is believed to be a one-year deal making the veteran's minimum.
The small forward who spent the last two seasons with the Lakers could be a key reserve with his new team, providing energy and scoring punch off the bench.
Barnes, a nine-year veteran who has played with eight teams, will be teammates with Blake Griffin, the all-star power forward that Barnes shoved to the ground during a preseason game last year, drawing a flagrant foul.
Barnes, 32, started his NBA career with the Clippers during the 2003-04 season after a standout career at UCLA. He has career averages of 7.3 points and 4.5 rebounds.
