Timberwolves buyout Andre Miller will sign with the Spurs, The Vertical reports.

Miller, 39, was waived by Minnesota on Thursday and reportedly hoped to join a playoff contender as he nears the end of his career. The Spurs, who are 49–9 entering Saturday, fit that criteria. He will be eligible for the playoff roster after clearing waivers Saturday.

Miller has played in 26 games for the Timberwolves this season. He is averaging 3.4 points and 2.2 assists in 10.8 minutes per game. The veteran guard played in 81 games last season with the Washington Wizards and Sacramento Kings. Miller is unlikely to factor in heavily with Tony Parker and Patty Mills already shouldering the load at the point, but provides a veteran influence and experienced extra hand.

The Spurs were also reported to be a favorite for the services of another Wolves buyout candidate, shooting guard Kevin Martin. Martin has yet to be officially waived by the team. If they reach a buyout, it’s unclear whether that remains a possibility. 

San Antonio must clear a roster spot to officially add Miller.
