The San Antonio Spurs needed to add a little bit more depth and a little bit more youth to their front court heading into the 2015-16 campaign and they did it the most Spurs way possible by adding Boban Marjanovic from Crvena Zvezda.

Here is more on the signing from the Spurs press release:

The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have signed center Boban Marjanovic. Per club policy, terms of the contract were not announced.

Marjanovic, 7-3/290, is from Serbia and last played for Crvena Zvezda in 2014-15. In 24 Euroleague games, he averaged 16.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 27.3 minutes. A professional since 2006, Marjanovic was named All-Euroleague First Team in 2015 and has been named Serbian Super League MVP on three occasions.

In 19 Serbian League contests last season, he averaged 13.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 19.6 minutes.
The 26-year-old's debut on the Serbian National Team came at the EuroBasket 2011.
