Spurs sign forward Haislip

SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs have signed former first-round pick Marcus Haislip.

The 6-foot-10 forward spent the past two seasons in Spain after being drafted 13th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2002. The former Tennessee star also played for the Indiana Pacers in 2004-05 before going overseas to improve his game.

Haislip could provide needed size and depth to the Spurs frontcourt after San Antonio lost Fabricio Oberto and Kurt Thomas last month in a trade for swingman Richard Jefferson.

Terms of the deal announced Wednesday were not disclosed.

The Spurs also brought back forward Malik Hairston, who played 15 games with the Spurs last season and spent much of the year in the NBA Development League.
