Former San Diego State forward Josh Davis has left the NBA D-League to sign with the Meralco Bolts, a team in the Philippine Basketball Association, according to RealGM.

Davis has spent the NBA season with the San Antonio Spurs D-League affiliate, the Austin Spurs. He averaged 13.8 points and 10.5 rebounds per game while playing for Austin.

He was invited to the Spurs' training camp this preseason after outplaying Noah Vonleh as a member of the Charlotte Hornets' NBA Summer League team. He averaged 8.9 points and 10.1 rebounds, and he recorded double-doubles in three of the seven games.

Davis played the 2013-14 season as a graduate transfer for SDSU after playing two seasons with Tulane and one season with North Carolina State. He averaged 7.7 points and 10.1 rebounds while shooting nearly 46 percent as a member of the 2014 SDSU Sweet 16 team.

This news comes just a day after SDSU fans learned former Aztec guard Jamaal Franklin signed with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, the Los Angeles Lakers D-League affiliate.

Davis' fellow senior on that 2013-14 Aztec squad, Xavier Thames, is also playing abroad; he's in Spain playing for Baloncesto Sevilla.
