Clippers have interest in Darko Milicic

The Los Angeles Clippers signed Grant Hill to a two-year contract Wednesday night to bolster their small forward spot, and the team also reached out to free-agent centers Darko Milicic and Ryan Hollins.

Hill agreed to join the team under the biannual exception, taking a two-year deal that starts at $1.9 million in the first year and has a raise of 4.5 percent in the second.

Hill, who will be 40 in October, is expected to back up Caron Butler at small forward.

The Clippers are expected to hold a news conference next week to formally announce the signing.
