SAN ANTONIO -- A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Dewayne Dedmon has agreed to terms on a two-year, $6 million contract with the San Antonio Spurs.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the move. Dedmon is a 26-year-old, 7-foot center who spent the last two-plus seasons in Orlando.

He gives the Spurs another rim protector and defensive presence off the bench. He also serves as some insurance should longtime franchise centerpiece Tim Duncan retire.

Dedmon has also played for Golden State and Philadelphia in his young career.

Yahoo Sports first reported the agreement.
