West has agreed to a veteran minimum contract with the Spurs, David Aldridge of NBA.com reports.

West declined a $12 million option to remain with the Pacers earlier in the offseason and will now head to San Antonio for just $1.2 million. In addition to the major pay cut, West should come off the bench with the Spurs as he plays behind Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge. He formerly was a perennial starter in Indiana and his new role in the Spurs' crowded frontcourt should hurt West's value when considering that he was allotted 28.7 minutes per game last season, a total that he'll likely have trouble duplicating as he joins the Spurs in pursuit of the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy.

West informed the Pacers that he will decline his player option for next season, Candace Buckner of the Indy Star reports.

West was set to make $12.6 million next season, but he'll opt out in hopes of landing a longer-term deal. At age 34, West is unlikely to find a deal that pays him upwards of $10 million per season, but he's still a productive player, so securing a multi-year deal is certainly feasible. West averaged 11.7 points and 6.8 rebounds in 28.7 minutes per game last season. At this point, it's unclear whether the Pacers, who are looking to become a more versatile team, will be interested in bringing him back.

West averaged 11.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 29 minutes per game through 66 games in the 2014-15 season. He has a player option with the Pacers for the 2015-16 season.

West missed the first month of the 2014-15 season with an ankle injury. Going into the All Star break, West averaged 13.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and was the 102nd ranked player in eight-category leagues. After the break, though, his stats declined to 9.5 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 3.2 assists, making him the 155th ranked player during that span. Pacers president Larry Bird stated during exit interviews that he wants to use smaller and faster lineups, meaning West can expect less minutes if he decides to stay in Indiana next year. At age 34, West's best years are behind him, and owners shouldn't expect too much from the veteran in 2015-16, especially if he returns to the Pacers.

Luis Scola has replaced West while he was being tended to by team trainers. West had one rebound in six minutes of action before suffering the ankle sprain, but it appears that he'll be able to return to the game.
