April 4 (UPI) -- The San Antonio Spurs have added size to their roster, inking 7-foot forward Donatas Motiejunas to a contract.
The team announced Thursday they had agreed to terms with the forward, who spent the last two seasons in the Chinese Basketball Association.
While playing for the Shandong Golden Stars in China, Motiejunas dominated, putting up an average of 27.3 points, 14 rebounds and 4.2 assists a game.
Motiejunas was a first round pick back in 2011, going 20th overall to the Minnesota Timberwolves before being traded to Houston on draft night.
He had also played in Poland, Italy and Lithuania before coming to the United States to play in the NBA.
The forward will take the roster spot that was left vacant when Pau Gasol left for Milwaukee last month.
San Antonio at 45-34 sit in the eighth spot in the NBA's Western Conference, a half-game behind the Oklahoma City Thunder for the seventh seed.
