Leon Powe Signs In Puerto Rico

For NBA teams in need of size and depth, another big man is off the market. Leon Powe has officially signed with Puerto Rico's Atleticos de San German, the team announced today (hat tip to Sportando).

Powe, 28, hadn't played for an NBA team this year, but appeared in 30 games for the Cavaliers and Grizzlies in 2010/11. Powe also spent three seasons with the Celtics, and was part of the Boston squad that defeated the Lakers in the 2008 NBA Finals. In 239 career contests, the 6'8" forward has averaged 6.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game.

The Bulls were said to be eyeing Powe earlier this season as a potential backup plan if Joel Przybilla signed elsewhere. However, even after Przybilla inked a deal with the Blazers, Chicago didn't make a move for Powe.
