The addition gives the Spurs another option while Tony Parker nurses a left heel injury.
Stoudamire negotiated a buyout with Memphis last week after falling behind two young players in the rotation.
Stoudamire has averaged 13.8 points and 6.3 assists in his 13-year career. He averaged 7.3 points and 3.9 assists in 29 games for the Grizzlies this season. His last game was Dec. 30 against the Spurs.
The Rookie of the Year for Toronto in 1995-96, Stoudamire averaged a career-high 20.2 points in his second season before getting traded to Portland the following year.
After seven-plus seasons with the Trail Blazers, Stoudamire signed as a free agent with Memphis in 2005. A knee injury ended his first season with the Grizzlies after just two months, and his scoring average hasn't returned to double digits since.
