Spurs sign Jones, waive McClinton

The Spurs announced the signing of 6-11 big man Dwayne Jones, who played with the Austin Toros last year,.

At the same time they made the Curtis Jerrells and Keith Bogans signings official. We reported the Jerrells signing first on Project Spurs last Tuesday and discussed the Bogans signing yesterday.

In a surprising move, the Spurs waived second round draft selection Jack McClinton. It appears as thought the Spurs saw enough of McClinton in his poor summer league showings.

While I didn’t expect McClinton to earn a roster spot, I was surprised they didn’t give him another chance in training camp, but the Spurs have released players early in the past so they have a chance to go to camp with another team or explore their options overseas.

Be sure to check back here on Project Spurs as we’ll have a full profile on Johnson tomorrow.
