San Antonio Spurs will not extend a qualifying offer to young guard Quinndary Weatherspoon and he’ll become an unrestricted free agent, league sources tell @YahooSports.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) June 7, 2021
This move will make the second-year combo guard one of eight Spurs hitting the open market as an unrestricted free agent this summer.
After a quiet rookie campaign in which he appeared in just 11 games and ended the year with a left knee injury, PATFO re-signed Quinndary to a second two-way contract for his second go-round.
Surgery rehabilitation and a lengthy COVID-19 recovery process derailed Weatherspoon’s sophomore season, and the 24-year-old never found a way to break into San Antonio’s rotation.
Quinndary Weatherspoon finished the season on a positive note, scoring a career-high 13 points against the Suns and following that performance up with 11 points versus Phoenix in the season finale.
The six-three swingman averaged 1.9 points in 6.4 minutes per game on 40.4% shooting from the field across 31 appearances during his two-year stint with the Spurs.
There’s still a possibility that San Antonio re-signs Weatherspoon this offseason, though their crowded backcourt suggests Quinndary’s next NBA stop lies outside of the Alamo City.
