SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Spurs officially announced on Tuesday that they have waived guard Brandon Paul.

The 27-year-old Paul played in 64 games for the Spurs last season and averaged 2.3 points and 1.1 rebounds per game.

Paul also spent a couple games with the Austin Spurs at the start of the season.

Paul was signed by the Spurs as a free agent last summer after playing several seasons overseas. He split time with the Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017 Summer League prior to joining San Antonio.

By waiving Paul prior to August 1st, the Spurs will not have to pay the $1.4 million owed to him this upcoming season. The move also brings San Antonio’s roster to 14 players in case they want to sign someone else, or maintain their roster flexibility with that final spot.

  1. I was really hoping we could find some way to keep him, but it’s probably best for his career if he goes somewhere where he can play more. Being stuck in a glut of guards is not a great position to be in.
