The San Antonio Spurs have added to their roster with the NBA playoffs approaching. D-League player, Damion James has been signed to the Spurs roster on a 10-day contract.
This will be probably be the last chance that the Spurs will have to try out potential role-players before the start of the postseason.
James was originally drafted by the Atlanta Hawks in 2010 but has failed to impress during three NBA stints with the New Jersey and Brooklyn Nets.
However, James has averaged 21 points per game this season with the Texas Legends of the D-League and has also added eight rebounds.
The Spurs have had a history of acquiring promising players from the D-League. Danny Green, who played a big part in the Spurs run to the NBA Finals last season spent time in the D-League and in Europe before making an impact in the NBA.
There are no guarantees that James will make the Spurs' 15-man roster for the playoffs but he is sure to play a part for Gregg Popovich's side in the remaining few regular season games as he looks to rest his aging stars.
