The San Antonio Spurs have claimed Devontae Cacok off waivers and will convert him to a two-way contract, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The 25-year-old forward spent his first two seasons in the NBA playing for the Los Angeles Lakers on a two-way deal. He then signed with the Brooklyn Nets in late September before being waived on October 16.
Cacok joins rookie swingman Joe Wieskamp on San Antonio’s final two-way contract. This move brings their roster to maximum capacity with only two days until their season opener against the Orlando Magic.
Despite going undrafted in 2019, the six-seven bruiser was a four-year standout at UNC Wilmington, earning an All-CAA First Team and CAA All-Defense nod during his senior season with the program.
Although Cacok wasn’t a significant rotation player for Los Angeles in their 2020 title run, he earned All-NBA G League First Team and NBA G League All-Rookie Team honors while playing for the South Bay Lakers.
Cacok has appeared in 21 games throughout his NBA career, averaging 2.1 points and 1.8 rebounds. He also played in a pair of preseason games for the Nets, posting 7.5 points per game on 85.7% shooting.
