Tuesday the San Antonio Spurs released their 2022 Las Vegas Summer League roster.
Here are a few notable players on the roster.
- Josh Primo – Going back to players like Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Anderson, the Spurs usually have players entering their second season have more responsibility and perhaps a bigger role than they’ll have in the regular season during their Summer League games. If Primo excels early on, does he end up playing in all five Summer League games? Typically if a second year player shines, that player may only play in a few games.
- Joe Wieskamp, Robert Woodard II, and DJ Stewart – Seeing these three players on the roster is interesting because all three players can be made restricted free agents at the latest, Wednesday. Perhaps since these players are already on the Summer League roster, they may not get the qualifying offers and instead they’ll try to earn a spot on the Spurs’ training camp roster, which might lead to a roster spot or two-way spot down the road.
- Jeremy Sochan, Malaki Branham, and Blake Wesley – the three rookies the Spurs drafted last week will indeed make their Summer League debut it appears.
- Dominic Barlow – Barlow has reportedly agreed to a two-way deal with the Spurs. Though the deal hasn’t been made official since free agent signings can’t take place until after June 30, Summer League will be an opportunity for Barlow to play alongside some of his future teammates like Primo, Sochan, Branham, and Wesley.
The Spurs’ Summer League play will begin July 8 against the Cleveland Cavaliers and their final game will take place either July 16 or July 17.
