National Basketball Association (NBA) side San Antonio Spurs have announced that they have re-signed guard Bryn Forbes. Per club policy, terms of the contract were not announced.

Forbes is back at Spurs for his second stint with team having joined the San Antonio-based side in July 2016 after impressing during the NBA Summer League.

The 24-year-old made his first career start for Spurs and scored 13 points in a 133–94 win over the Chicago Bulls in November 2017.

Forbes became the third undrafted player under 6-foot-4 to start a game in San Antonio franchise history, joining Avery Johnson and Anthony Carter.

Spurs released the following statement:

"Forbes led the Spurs in three-point percentage last season, shooting .390 (89-228) from long range. The second-year guard appeared in 80 games and averaged 6.9 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 19.0 minutes."

"One of just three players to play in at least 80 games for San Antonio last year, Forbes scored double figures in 28 contests and led the Spurs in scoring four times, tied for second-most on the team."

"Having originally signed with the Spurs as an undrafted free agent on July 14, 2016, Forbes has appeared in 116 career games, averaging 5.6 points and 1.1 rebounds in 15.5 minutes. Forbes was named to the 2017 All-NBA Summer League Second Team, leading all players in scoring by averaging 26.0 points in five games for the Spurs in Las Vegas," a statement read.

The new 2018/19 NBA season will start in October 2018.
