The Detroit Pistons have signed former San Antonio Spurs center Boban Marjanovic, according to ESPN's Mark Stein.

The 7-foot-3-inch center from Serbia spent his first season in the NBA with the Spurs in 2015-16.

Marjanovic, 27, played in 54 games last season, averaging 5.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in 9.4 minutes per game.

The deal, according to Stein , will be for three years and is worth $21 million.

Marjanovic was a fan favorite in San Antonio, and became internet famous when stories began popping up about how big his hands are.

Below is a video and photo of Marjanovic with a reporter.
