It appears that the San Antonio Spurs have rounded out their postseason roster.

The team today announced that it has signed big man Donatas Motiejunas just in time for the playoffs.

Motiejunas joins the Spurs after spending the last two seasons playing for the Shandong Golden Stars of the Chinese Basketball Association; he averaged 27.3 points, 14.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game in the 2018-19 CBA season.

The 7-footer has spent five seasons in the NBA, most recently with the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2016-17 season. Motiejunas has career averages of 7.4 points and 3.8 rebounds over 248 NBA games (101 starts). His best year was the 2014-15 season with the Houston Rockets, where he averaged 12.0 points and 5.9 rebounds while shooting 36.8 percent from deep over 71 games.

With three games remaining in the regular season, the Spurs (45-34) have clinched a spot in the playoffs for the 22nd consecutive season. San Antonio is currently in the West's eighth seed but is just one-half game back of Oklahoma City (45-33).

The Spurs are back in action Friday night when they visit the Wizards.
