Horry remains in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO -- Spurs forward Robert Horry re-signed with the
team Thursday.

The deal came a day after San Antonio signed power forwards Tony
Massenburg and Sean Marks, who spent last season on the Spurs'
injured list.

The 6-foot-10 Horry, who turns 34 this month, averaged 4.8
points and 3.4 rebounds in 81 games with San Antonio last season.
He also played in all 10 of the Spurs' playoff games, averaging 6.1
points and 6.3 rebounds.

Last month, the team declined to exercise its $5 million option
to keep Horry, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Horry, going into his 13th NBA season, picked up championship
titles with the Houston Rockets in 1994 and 1995, then three more
with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2000, 2001 and 2002.

The Spurs originally signed him to fill a need for clutch
shooting after the Lakers opted to let him become a free agent. In
his career, Horry has averaged 7.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.4
assists in 856 games.

He ranks second in NBA Finals history with 38 3-pointers,
trailing only Michael Jordan.
