Horry told Houston television station KRIV that he's signed a one-year deal with a player's option for the second year, but did not disclose the financial terms. He lives in Houston in the offseason.

Spurs spokesman Tom James told The Associated Press he could not confirm the signing. He declined to comment further.

Horry averaged 4.8 points and 3.6 rebounds last year in San Antonio. He spent six seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers before joining the Spurs.

He won three titles with the Lakers and two with the Houston Rockets.

Also, the Spurs signed veteran forward Tony Massenburg and re-signed forward Sean Marks.

Massenburg played for the Sacramento Kings last year, averaging 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds in 59 games. He was selected by San Antonio in the second round of the 1990 NBA draft and played 36 games for the Spurs before being released in December 1991.

The 6-foot-9 power forward played for a dozen NBA teams in as many years, averaging 6.5 points and 4.5 rebounds.

Marks signed with San Antonio last September, but he spent the 2003-04 season on the injured list because of tendinitis in his left knee.

In 57 games over five NBA seasons, he averaged 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds. Marks is the first New Zealand native to play in the NBA, and is a member of New Zealand's national team that will compete in the 2004 Olympics.
