Anyone looking for a big man can now take a look at Dewayne Dedmon, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.

Per the report, the San Antonio Spurs center is declining his $3 million player option for next season and will become an unrestricted free agent.

Also per Yahoo Sports:

Dedmon, one of the top available centers this summer, averaged 17.5 minutes, 5.1 points and 6.5 rebounds in 76 games this season. Dedmon also started 37 regular-season games and three playoff games.

The 7-foot Dedmon will command a market as an active rim protector and reliable starter. He signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Spurs last offseason.

Dedmon, 27, has averaged 4.3 points and 5.1 rebounds for his four-year career, and made marked improvements this past season.

The Spurs are looking to re-shape their roster after getting swept by Golden State in the Western Conference finals. They could potentially re-sign Dedmon, but are likely to explore other options as well.
