                === Report: Spurs strike deal with Belinelli ===
 
 (Sports  Network) - The San Antonio Spurs have reportedly reached an agreement
 with  guard Marco  Belinelli on  a  two-year contract,  according to  multiple
 reports.
 
 Yahoo!  Sports  has stated that the  deal, which cannot be made official until
 July 10, is worth a total of $6 million.
 
 Belinelli  comes to  the defending Western Conference champions after spending
 last  season  with the  Chicago Bulls,  where the  native Italian averaged 9.6
 points, 2.0 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 73 games as a key reserve.
 
 Selected  by Golden  State  with the  18th  overall pick  of  the 2007  draft,
 Belinelli  has  averaged 9.0 points  and shot  38.7 percent from 3-point range
 over six seasons with the Warriors, Toronto, New Orleans and Chicago.
 
 Belinelli's  addition may  lessen the chances of the Spurs bringing back guard
 Gary  Neal, a restricted free agent who averaged 9.7 points and shot nearly 40
 percent from beyond the arc over his three seasons in San Antonio.
