Stoudamire’s agent, Aaron Goodwin, confirmed the decision.
Stoudamire, 34, chose the Spurs because they afforded him a better opportunity to play. Tony Parker has been shelved indefinitely because of bone spurs in his left heel and Brent Barry is out at least another two weeks with a calf injury, leaving San Antonio with Manu Ginobili and backup point guard Jacque Vaughn as its only true ballhandlers.
Parker underwent an MRI Wednesday and has a follow-up appointment with doctors on Thursday to see if the pain in his heel has lessened. Team officials expect him to be out at least a week.
