Spurs Release Julian Washburn

The Spurs have waived Julian Washburn, the team announced via press release. San Antonio had just signed the swingman two days ago in a move that appears geared toward securing his D-League rights, since NBA teams can claim the D-League rights to as many as four players they cut from the NBA roster. The subtraction of Washburn, coupled with the team’s decision to waive Reggie Williams, takes San Antonio’s roster to 15 players, the regular season limit.

Washburn, a 23-year-old Texas native, went undrafted out of UTEP this year. He played with the Warriors in summer league, totaling two points in about 14 minutes spread over a pair of games, but he didn’t see any preseason action in his brief tenure on the Spurs roster.

San Antonio moves forward with Matt Bonner, who has a sizable $749,594 partial guarantee, and Rasual Butler, who’s on a non-guaranteed deal. The 13 other Spurs have full guarantees.
