The San Antonio Spurs announced Monday the team has officially re-signed forward Matt Bonner. Per club policy, terms of Bonner’s deal were not made public.
Though he wasn’t a main part of the Spurs’ regular season rotation last season, Bonner’s specialist ability to shoot 3-pointers from the outside and stretch the floor made him a piece Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich went to in the playoffs against both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat.
The expectation is Bonner will earn the veteran minimum in the 2014-15 NBA season.
With Bonner back on board, the Spurs now have 14 guaranteed contracts on their roster. By the start of the regular season, the maximum number of players allowed can only be 15. That continues to leave the Spurs with one remaining roster spot available. The team can either re-sign restricted free agent Aron Baynes, sign an outside free agent with the Mid-Level Exception, sign a training camp invite like Bryce Cotton, or just leave the spot open.
