Forward Fabricio Oberto, formerly a regular starter of the San Antonio Spurs' title winning team in 2007, has joined the Washington Wizards as a free agent, said the NBA team on Tuesday.
The 2.02-meter Argentine has career averages of 3.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game during four seasons with the Spurs.
He was traded to Detroit in a five-player deal earlier this summer but was subsequently waived by the Pistons.
No detail of Oberto's contract with the Wizards has been released.
