The Spurs have signed undrafted swingman Julian Washburn, the team announced via a press release. The length and details of the deal were not announced, but it is most likely a minimum salary arrangement that includes little or no guaranteed money, though that is merely my speculation.
Washburn, 23, spent four years at the University of Texas at El Paso, where he averaged 11.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 34.2 minutes over 130 career games. He finished first in school history in total minutes (4,448), fourth in field goals (592) and sixth in scoring (1,526 points). Washburn played summer league ball for the Warriors this year, making two appearances and averaging a single point per contest.
The addition of Washburn gives San Antonio a roster count of 17 players, including 13 with full guarantees on their pacts. The 6’8″ forward is most likely being inked with an eye on sending him to the team’s D-League affiliate in Austin.
