SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The San Antonio Spurs have signed Quincy Pondexter, adding a forward in the same week veteran star Manu Ginobili announced his retirement.
The 6'7" Pondexter spent last season with the Chicago Bulls, averaging 2.0 points and 1.2 rebounds in 8.5 minutes in 23 games. The seven-year NBA veteran out of Washington has averaged 5.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 17.3 minutes over 302 total games with Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Memphis and Chicago.
Ginobili announced his decision to retire Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). The 41-year-old helped the Spurs win four NBA championships in 16 seasons. This season will be the first for coach Gregg Popovich without stars Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard.
