NOVEMBER 24: The Spurs have officially announced Weatherspoon’s two-way deal, issuing a press release to confirm the signing.
The 6’3″ guard, an All-SEC honoree for his last three years with Mississippi State, was drafted by the Spurs with the 49th pick last season, who signed him to his initial two-way contract at the time. He received a qualifying offer earlier this week to run things back. As a two-way player, such a deal typically signifies that Weatherspoon will net at least $50K from San Antonio.
The 24-year-old appeared in 11 games with San Antonio during his rookie season, averaging 1.1 PPG and 1.0 APG in 7.1 minutes per contest. Weatherspoon averaged 14.8 PPG, 5.2 APG, and 3.8 RPG across 36 games (including 35 starts) for the Spurs’ G League affiliate, the Austin Spurs, during 2019/20.
