The Spurs are paring down their roster for the regular season and are set to waive Livio Jean-Charles, Patricio Garino, and Joel Anthony, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reports (via Twitter). Garino’s deal has a partial guarantee of $100K and Jean-Charles’ pact worth $1,188,840 is fully guaranteed, which San Antonio will be on the hook for unless the players are claimed off waivers by another team. No guaranteed money was included in Anthony’s arrangement.
Jean-Charles was a draft-and-stash prospect, taken No. 28 overall during the 2013 draft. The 6’9”, 22-year-old Charles played the last four seasons for the French League club ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne, which is co-owned by San Antonio point guard Tony Parker. Last season he appeared in 25 games, averaging 5.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in 21.2 minutes.
Garino, 23, spent four years at George Washington, increasing his production in each season. In 2015/16, the 6’7″ forward averaged 14.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 1.4 SPG, and 0.8 BPG while shooting 43.0% on three-point attempts.
Anthony, 34, spent the last two seasons in Detroit, playing sparingly for the Pistons. In 2015/16, he averaged a career-low 5.1 minutes per game in 19 regular-season contests.
