The Clippers continued their busy offseason Sunday by re-signing backup center Ryan Hollins to a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum, according to Arash Markazi of ESPNLA.com.

Hollins last season signed with the Clippers¬† for a one-year deal also for the veteran’s minimum salary and appeared in 60 games averaging 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per game.

The 28-year-old took¬† the news of the signing to Twitter Sunday morning by tweeting “#ClipperNation we have some unfinished business!!!! Blessed to be back in a @LACLIPPERS uniform! I’m #ALLIN.”

Hollins has familiarity with new Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, having played for the Boston Celtics during the 2011-12 season and in 17 games in the playoffs for franchise.

The seven-year veteran big man adds to the Clippers team that has already acquired 3-point shooters J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley, fellow former UCLA Bruin point guard Darren Collison, re-signed point guard Chris Paul and forward Matt Barnes, and selected former North Carolina Tar Heel guard Reggie Bullock with the 25th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft.

The Clippers are also looking to retain forward Ronny Turiaf and are rumored to be close to an agreement on a one-year deal with former Los Angeles Lakers forward Antawn Jamison.
