The Spurs are now down to 16 players after waiving Curtis Jerrells today.
Jerrells averaged 3.6 points and1.8 assists in the preseason, but he was likely the odd man out from day one in training camp. Even though, in our opinion, he outplayed Marcus Williams at times, the Spurs front office seems to have a fascination with Williams, likely because they drafted him.
Jerrells was quick, attacked the basket and would have been a better fit if the Spurs decided to keep a third string point guard, but whether Williams was here or not, Jerrells didn’t have much of a chance to make the roster after the Spurs signed Keith Bogans before training camp.
The Spurs still need to make one or perhaps two more cuts before the beginning of the season, depending on how many players Pop wants to keep on the roster. Our money is on Williams to be the next player packing his bags, likely for Europe. If Pop decides to just keep 14, I think Malik Hairston is probably a step ahead of Bogans, and with Hairston displaying his defensive skills, Bogans may become expendable.
