The Clippers and free-agent center Byron Mullens reached agreement on a two-year contract Saturday, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Mullens’ deal is worth about $1 million per season. He can opt out of the contract after one season.

Mullens is expected to sign his contract with the Clippers on Monday or Tuesday.

The 7-foot Mullens averaged 10.6 points and 6.4 rebounds per game last season with Charlotte. He shot 38.5% from the field, 31.7% from three-point range.

Adding Mullens gives the Clippers three centers; DeAndre Jordan and Ryan Hollins are the other two.

That means the Clippers probably won't be interested in signing free-agent center Marcus Camby,  the NBA executives said.

The Clippers now have a 13-man roster.
