The Los Angeles Clippers have signed free agents Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes.

The deals were announced Thursday night, shortly after LeBron James said he was leaving Cleveland for the Miami Heat. The Clippers were among the teams that made a pitch to James.

Foye, who has played for four seasons, averaged 10.1 points, 3.3 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 70 games for the Washington Wizards last season.

Gomes, who has played for five seasons, averaged 10.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in 76 games for Minnesota last season. He was traded by Minnesota to Portland on draft day last month, and was waived by the Trail Blazers on June 29.

Terms of the deals weren't announced.

The Clippers lost free agent guard Steve Blake, who officially signed with the Lakers on Thursday.
