The Spurs have reached an agreement to sign undrafted rookie Dedric Lawson, reports Jabari Young of The Athletic (Twitter link). RealGM’s log of NBA transactions confirms that the deal is official. According to Young, Lawson received an Exhibit 10 contract.
A 6’9″ forward out of Kansas, Lawson entered the 2019 draft following his junior season. In 36 games for the Jayhawks in 2018/19, he averaged a double-double, filling the stat sheet with 19.4 PPG, 10.3 RPG, 1.3 SPG, and 1.1 BPG. He also made 39.3% of his three-pointers on 2.5 attempts per game.
Lawson will join the Spurs after playing for the Warriors in this month’s Las Vegas Summer League. He recorded 6.0 PPG, 4.8 RPG, and 2.3 APG in four games (16.8 MPG) for Golden State.
San Antonio was active in free agency, reaching deals with Rudy Gay, DeMarre Carroll, and Trey Lyles. The club also signed draftees Luka Samanic, Keldon Johnson, and Quinndary Weatherspoon (two-way deal). Lawson is the Spurs’ first reported Exhibit 10 recipient.
