The San Antonio Spurs reached agreement on a contract with free agent forward/center Joffrey Lauvergne, The Vertical reported Monday. Photo courtesy of The Vertical/Twitter
Details of his deal with the Spurs were unavailable, but apparently the Spurs felt they needed another big man.
LaMarcus Aldridge appeared to be on the trading block at one point, and Pau Gasol, Dewayne Dedmon and David Lee are free agents. Gasol reportedly is likely to re-sign with the Spurs, however.
The 6-foot-11 Lauvergne, 25, is a versatile player, but he averaged just 5.4 points and 3.6 rebounds while splitting the 2016-17 season between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Bulls.
