Spurs Sports & Entertainment CEO and longtime front office executive RC Buford released the following statement.
“It is our hope that, in the long run, this decision will serve the best interest of both the organization and Joshua.”
San Antonio selected Primo with the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, and he made 54 appearances for the Spurs.
The 19-year-old swingman averaged 7.0 points and 4.5 assists on 34.6% shooting in four games this season before missing time with a glute injury.
Primo appeared to be on track to assume a significant role on and off the court as a core piece for the franchise, so this breaking news is shocking.
The organization states that it has no additional comments to share at the moment, and we will continue to update fans as more information arrives.
