The San Antonio Spurs announced on Wednesday that they have officially re-signed Rudy Gay and Davis Bertans. The team also signed 2018 first round draftee Lonnie Walker IV.
As always with team policy, the terms of their contracts were not disclosed, but Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reported the deal for Gay was worth one year at $10 million. The deal for Bertans is reportedly two years for $14.5 million. Walker will be signed on his rookie scale contract for the 18th pick in the draft.
According to Bertans’ agent, it’s a fully guaranteed two year deal for Bertans.
Since Gay will be signed using Non-Bird Rights, Gay will become an unrestricted free agent next season. Bertans is being signed using his early bird rights.
In his first season with San Antonio, Gay averaged 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 21.6 minutes primarily off the bench.
Bertans primarily came off the bench for San Antonio last season where he scored 5.9 points and grabbed two rebounds per game. Bertans made 37.3% of his 3.3 three point attempts last season.
Gay became a starter in the playoffs where he averaged 12.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 32 minutes per game.
Walker IV is currently averaging 13.7 points, on assist, and 3.7 rebounds per game in the Las Vegas Summer League.
With Walker IV, Gay and Bertans’ signings official, the Spurs now have 12 players on the roster. That number will change once the signing of Marco Belinelli becomes official, along with the re-signing of Bryn Forbes.
We will continue to update this page with signings as they become official, so keep checking back regularly.
Wow I hope we have room for Metu. I’d keep him over Costello and Hilliard.
