AUSTIN, TEXAS – The Austin Spurs announced today that they have traded forward Jaron Blossomgame to the Canton Charge.

In exchange, the Spurs will receive the rights to returning player, John Holland, and a 2019 second round pick in the NBA G League Draft.

And thus, Blossomgame’s tenure with the Spurs comes to an unceremonious end.

Drafted 59th overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, Blossomgame chose to go to the G League instead of exploring more lucrative opportunities. His decision seemed to pay off, as he was an integral part of the Austin Spurs 2018 championship team.

Over the summer, Blossomgame played with the San Antonio Spurs’ Summer League team, and received a training camp invite, but was eventually waived by San Antonio.

The 25-year-old Blossomgame finishes his time in Austin by averaging 17.2 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.

Meanwhile, Austin will now receive the rights to returning player, John Holland.

The 30-year-old Holland was waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers just two weeks ago, before returning to Canton.

Holland is a 6-foot-5 guard who excels defensively, who also shoots about league average on 3-pointers.

In addition to the Cavaliers, Holland has also spent time with the Boston Celtics and several overseas clubs.
