SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The San Antonio Spurs have signed center Theo Ratliff.
Terms of the deal announced Saturday were not disclosed.
The 6-foot-10 Ratliff spent last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, averaging 1.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.02 blocks in 12.6 minutes while appearing in 46 games.
Ratliff has also played for Detroit, Atlanta, Portland, Boston and Minnesota during 14 NBA seasons.
Ratliff was a second-team selection to two NBA All-Defensive teams (1998-99, 2003-04), and is one of seven players in NBA history to lead the league in blocks in at least three seasons (2000-01, 2002-03 and 2003-04).
He ranks 18th all-time in total blocks (1,902) and is fifth among active players.
