Nenê, 36, became an unrestricted free agent back in June after opting out of the final season of his contract. The veteran big man appeared in 42 games last season, averaging 3.6 points and 2.9 rebounds -- both career lows.
The team also reached an agreement last week with Eric Gordon's camp, extending the guard's contract for another four seasons.
