SAN ANTONIO – New San Antonio Spurs guard Demar DeRozan has been added to the annual H-E-B commercial lineup, according to the team's official twitter account.

The 29-year-old, nine-year pro will join current Spurs players LaMarcus Aldridge, Patty Mills, Pau Gasol and Rudy Gay in the commercials. 

DeRozan was acquired from the Toronto Raptors in July as part of a trade for two-time Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard.

The commercials are a yearly tradition but are now undergoing its biggest shakeup since their inception, following the departure of franchise legends Tony Parker in free agency and the retirement of Manu Ginobili.

Parker signed a a 2-year $10 million deal with the Charlotte Hornets after playing 17 years with the Spurs. Ginobili retired this offseason following 16 seasons with the club that included four NBA championships.

And while Tony Parker may not be available to appear, it is possible that Manu Ginobili still may show up in a H-E-B commercial. In the past, former Spurs legends such as Tim Duncan, David Robinson, George Gervin and Sean Elliott all have made cameos in the commercials.
