Los Angeles Clippers: Doug Overton, who played briefly for the Los Angeles Clippers two years ago, has signed a contract with the team.

To make room for him, the Clippers released Wang Zhizhi.

Overton played six games for the New Jersey Nets before being waived Nov. 13. He averaged 2.2 points in 18 games for the Clippers late in the 2001-2002 season.

In NBA seasons, Overton has career averages of 4.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 444 games. He has also played for Denver, Philadelphia, Orlando, Boston and Charlotte.

Wang, a center, appeared in 43 games in parts of two seasons with the Clippers, averaging 4.3 points. He had four points in two games this season while playing behind Predrag Drobnjak and rookie Chris Kaman.

Golden State Warriors: The Warriors waived forward Dan Langhi before Friday night's game against the Miami Heat.

Langhi signed with the Warriors eight days ago after the NBA granted the team a hardship exception to add a 13th active roster player. He did not appear in four games.

In a prior stint with the Warriors, Langhi appeared in four games and averaged 1.5 points.
