David West signs 1-year deal with Spurs

SAN ANTONIO (AP) David West has signed his one-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs.

The Spurs announced the signing on Friday. West agreed to terms on a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum of about $1.4 million last week.

West left a payday of more than $12 million with the Indiana Pacers to sign with the Spurs and chase his first title.

He chose the Spurs after San Antonio landed star forward LaMarcus Aldridge in free agency. West gives the Spurs some needed toughness and experience off the bench.

West spent the previous four seasons in Indiana. He averaged 11.7 points and 6.8 rebounds in 66 games last season.
