Saturday the San Antonio Spurs announced the team has waived Cam Reynolds and Tyler Zeller.
Reynolds was on an exhibit 10 contract, meaning there’s a chance he can play in the G-League with the Austin Spurs, while Zeller was on a non-guaranteed contract for $2.4 million.
The Spurs go into opening night next week with 14 players on guaranteed contracts and two players on two-way contracts.
Though the Spurs can sign one more player, they may not if they’re trying to avoid the luxury tax. By waiving Zeller, the Spurs are currently $1.3 million below the luxury tax.
Any additional player signed to a guaranteed contract worth more than $1.3 million by season’s end would put the team in the tax.
The Spurs will open the 2020-2021 season on the road Wednesday against Memphis.
