JULY 10TH, 4:21pm: The Spurs have reached an agreement with unrestricted free agent Jonathon Simmons, Shams Charania of RealGM reports. It will be a two-year pact worth the minimum, and it includes a team option for the second season. Simmons’ 2015/16 salary will be fully guaranteed, Charania adds.
The 25-year-old swingman went undrafted out of the University of Houston in 2012. Simmons made 29 appearances for the Cougars back in 2011/12, averaging 14.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.2 assists, with a slash line of .512/.386/.721.
Simmons has spent the last two seasons playing for the Austin Spurs in the NBA D-League. His D-League numbers last season were 15.2 PPG, 4.3 RPG, and 3.6 APG. His most recent action came as a member of the Nets’ Summer League squad in Orlando.

Needless to say he will be the next Bowen or Green
Yet another solid pick-up. R.C. and Pop or out for blood.
Is that the best they could do?
Sometimes I wonder if they even WANT to win anymore.
You’re being sarcastic right?
He’s a backup,. He’s not expected to start or anything. He’s a training camp body and a developmental player.
Nope.. Just signed two of the best FA’s on the market… And filled in with a few no name sure to be role players as they usually do… Which never produces winning!
You dont even know what spurs are so shut up if you know you wouldnt write these things for sure!!!
That’s my homme great fit for the San Antonio congrats J.S.
