The San Antonio Spurs agreed to terms on a two-year deal with forward Marco Belinelli, reports Yahoo! Sports.

He will reportedly receive $6 million over the length of the contract.

Belinelli, 27, averaged 9.6 points and two assists, but only shot 35.7 percent from beyond the arc in 79 games last season with the Chicago Bulls.

Belinelli was a good player off the bench in his first season with the Bulls, and has a career scoring average of nine points a contest. He was an expendable player after the Bulls drafted shooters Tony Snell and Erik Murphy last month.

More from Yahoo! Sports:

The Spurs’ agreement with Belinelli comes after they struck deals with two of their own free agents: guard Manu Ginobili (two years, $14 million) and center Tiago Splitter (four years, $36 million).

This is  a smart move for the Spurs. He could replace Ginibili's role sooner than later.  He will have a breakout year with the Spurs because I think they are the only team that knows how to use Euro players to their full potential. Expect a 30 point performance from him, but since it's Pop, he may sit for half or even a full season to learn the system..
