LJUBLJANA, Slovenia -- San Antonio Spurs forward Daniel Green has signed with Slovenian basketball league champion Union Olimpija.

The 24-year-old Green will be reunited with former college teammate Deon Thompson. The two helped North Carolina win the 2009 NCAA title.

Olimpija did not mention financial terms of the deal Monday or whether Green signed an out clause to return to the NBA after the lockout.

Green averaged 5.1 points in eight games last season for the Spurs.
