THOMASVILLE -- Thomasville's Charlie Ward capped a tumultous week by signing with the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs late Thursday night. The deal landed him with his third team in a week as he was traded from the New York Knicks to the Phoenix Suns on Monday. The Suns subsequently cut him to avoid having to pay the full $6 million salary he was earning with the Knicks.

Terms of Ward's new deal were not released. According to MSNBC, he was pursued by 14 teams. He chose the Spurs because of their wholesome image and his championship dreams. He is expected to be in uniform at Indiana tonight.
