The Spurs backcourt is continuing to take shape. After it was just reported that Bryn Forbes has signed with the Milwaukee Bucks, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Quinndary Weatherspoon will return to the Spurs on a two-way contract.
Guard Quinndary Weatherspoon is returning to the San Antonio Spurs on a two-way contract, his agent Daniel Hazan tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 22, 2020
The Spurs had extended a qualifying offer to Weatherspoon back on Nov. 18. Drafted 49th overall by the Spurs in the 2019 NBA Draft, he spent most of his time in Austin while appearing in 11 games for San Antonio last season. He saw some action in the Bubble, before suffering a strained knee.
This will be the final season he will be eligible to be a two-way player. The Spurs still have another two-way contract to hand out, and it will be interesting to see if they use it on this year’s second round pick Tre Jones or someone else. As a reminder, two-way players do not count against the team’s 15 guaranteed contracts, and they can spend up to 45 days with the NBA team during the regular season but are not eligible to participate in the postseason.
