David Lee will sign a two-year contract with the San Antonio Spurs, The Vertical’s Shams Charania reports. The deal is worth $3.2 million, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

The deal contains a player option for the second year. Lee, 33, finished last season with the Mavericks, averaging 7.8 points and 5.5 rebounds on the year. He has dealt with numerous injuries over the past several seasons.

With Tim Duncan retiring, Boris Diaw traded David West departing for Golden State, Lee adds some depth on the interior for the Spurs, who had the league’s second-best record last season. They also signed free agent centers Pau Gasol, who will likely start, and Dewayne Dedmon.

Entering his 13th NBA season, Lee holds career averages of 14.2 points and 9.2 rebounds. He is a two-time All-Star and was a member of Golden State’s title-winning team in 2015.
