The Spurs will sign guard Olivier Hanlan, Michael Scotto of The Athletic tweets.
It’s apparently a training camp deal, as San Antonio has 14 players with guaranteed contracts and another on a partially-guaranteed deal. They recently invited former Thunder swingman Josh Huestis to camp and signed Amida Brimah and Julian Washburn to Exhibit 10 deals.
The former Boston College standout was selected in the second round by the Jazz in 2015. The Spurs acquired his rights the following summer in exchange for Boris Diaw and a future second-rounder.
Hanlan, who has also played professionally in Lithuania and France, spent last season with the G League’s Austin Spurs. The 6’4” guard averaged 14.7 PPG, 2.8 RPG, and 2.8 APG in 30.6 MPG in 44 games, including 30 starts. He averaged 6.2 PPG, 2.4 RPG and 2.6 APG in five Las Vegas outings with the Spurs’ summer league team.

Need bigs not guards.
Nah, they needed one more guard to round out the training camp roster. Move makes sense. They might have too many bigs right now actually: LMA, Pertol, Gasol, Metu, Bretans, Eubanks, and Brimah
Mills, Dejo, White, DeMar, Marco, Forbes, Walker, Pondexter all play guard.
Bertans* isn’t really a big and Metu is really undersized right now in the NBA. Eubanks and Brimah aren’t gonna come close to making the roster whatsoever.
