The San Antonio Spurs announced on Friday the team has signed free agent forward Dante Cunningham.

While details weren’t given, it’s been reported to be a one-year deal worth around $2.5 million.

The 6-foot-8 Cunningham reportedly considered the Spurs and the Brooklyn Nets after averaging 5.7 points and 4.1 rebounds in 73 games for Brooklyn and the New Orleans Pelicans last season.

The nine-year veteran has played previously for Portland, Charlotte, Memphis, Minnesota, New Orleans and Brooklyn.

Cunningham, 31, is averaging 6.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game for his career. He is likely to replace Kyle Anderson (four-year, $37.2 million deal with the Memphis Grizzlies) in providing the Spurs with a versatile backup forward.
