NBA Rumors: San Antonio Spurs sign Damion James for rest of season

Now that the San Antonio Spurs have clinched home court advantage throughout the postseason, they have made a roster move.

On Sunday, the team announced that they have signed Damion James for the rest of the season.

Prior to joining the Spurs, James most recently played in the NBA D-League in 2013-14 for the Texas Legends and the Bakersfield Jam. In 85 career D-League games, the University of Texas product averaged 16.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.04 blocks in 31.8 minutes.

The Spurs signed James to a 10-day contract 10 days ago. With less than 10 days to go in the season, there are no more 10 day contracts, so teams have to sign a player for the rest of the season if they decide they want to either keep a player or make an addition to their roster.

James has played in just three games for the Spurs this season. He has not scored, but has grabbed three rebounds.

James was originally drafted by the Atlanta Hawks with the 24th overall pick in the first round of the 2010 draft, but has played in just 37 career games.
