According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, free agent center Spencer Hawes has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The 7-foot Seattle native agreed to a four-year, $23 million contract with Los Angeles but can’t sign until July 10, when the NBA’s moratorium on deals ends.

Hawes, 26, played for the Philadelphia 76ers and Cleveland Cavaliers last season, averaging 13.2 points and eight rebounds, along with shooting 45 percent from the 3-point line.

The former Washington Husky has played seven seasons in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings, Philadelphia 76ers and Cleveland Cavaliers, averaging 9.7 points and 6.4 rebounds in his career.

Hawes will join Seattle native Jamal Crawford and former Husky C.J. Wilcox on the Clippers.

Cleveland greets reopening of historic ballpark

This Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 photo shows an entrance to League Park in Cleveland. The city of Cleveland has invested $6.3 million in restoring the old site of League Park, a historic site where the Cleveland Indians clinched its 1920 World Series title, Babe Ruth hit his 500th home run and where Joe DiMaggio extended his hitting streak to 56 games. Not much of the old ballbark, where Cy Young threw the first pitch in 1891 remains, but the new park will host high school and youth games on its all-turf field and will pay homage to the greats who once played there.

The city has spent $6.3 million to turn an empty, trash-strewn field into a handsome ballpark with a playing surface of all-weather field turf.
