    SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Spurs today announced that the team has signed guard T.J. Ford. Per club policy details of the contract were not released.

    The 28-year-old Texas native has posted career averages of 11.4 points, 5.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 415 regular season games in seven NBA seasons. Prior to signing with San Antonio the 6-0, 165-pound point guard enjoyed stints with Milwaukee, Toronto and Indiana. Ford was selected by Milwaukee in the first round of the 2003 NBA Draft, with the eighth overall pick, after playing two seasons at the University of Texas. He enjoyed his best NBA season during the 2008-09 campaign, averaging 14.9 points, 5.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 74 games with the Indiana Pacers.

    Ford enjoyed an outstanding high school and collegiate career in the state of Texas. In his final two seasons at Willowridge High School, his teams posted a 75-1 record, capturing back-to-back Texas 5A State Championships. In two seasons at the University of Texas, Ford averaged 12.9 points and 8.8 assists. During his sophomore year he was named both the Naismith and Wooden Player of the Year Award winner and earned 2003 First Team All-American honors.

    I think the Spurs are going to be quite happy with him.

    Watch him win MIP.

    He didn't deserve to be glued to the bench

    I feel the same way. TJ IMO got a raw deal by having to play for that idiot O'Brien. My guess is TJ will fit right in as a Spur and play a significant role for them.

    I actually think he would have been a better fit with Boston. (A turnover prone PG who can't shoot and needs the ball in his hands..to play next to Manu...really?) Boston has a much more structured, but PG geared offense.

    However, TJ's playing in his home. I hope he does well. Still a good guy.
