MADRID (AP) -- Real Madrid has signed NBA player Marko Jaric for the remainder of the Spanish league season.

The 6-foot-7 guard has not played for the Memphis Grizzlies this season.

Jaric will be reunited with coach Ettore Messina nine years after the pair steered Kinder Bologna to Euroleague and Italian league titles.

Jaric then made the jump to the NBA, where he averaged 7.1 points and 3.6 assists in seven seasons. He spent three years with the Los Angeles Clippers and three more with the Minnesota Timberwolves before moving to Memphis last season, where he averaged 2.5 points in 53 appearances.

The 31-year-old Jaric was a member of then-Yugoslavia's world championship winning team in 2002.
