Spurs Sign Tommy Kuhse

AUGUST 26: The deal for Kuhse is now official, the Spurs have revealed in a press release.

AUGUST 25: The Spurs have agreed to sign free agent guard Tommy Kuhse, a source tells our JD Shaw (Twitter link).

Kuhse, 24, spent his five-year college career at Saint Mary’s, averaging 12.2 PPG, 3.7 APG, and 3.7 RPG on .494/.450/.808 shooting in 34 games (30.0 MPG) as a “super-senior” in 2021/22. He helped lead the team to a blowout victory over Indiana in the first round of this year’s NCAA tournament by racking up 19 points and six assists.

After going undrafted in June, Kuhse joined the Magic for the Las Vegas Summer League last month and performed admirably in his three appearances, averaging 17.3 PPG on .583/.400/1.000 shooting in just 23.2 minutes per contest.

Terms of Kuhse’s deal weren’t disclosed, but given the crowded state of the Spurs’ roster and the fact that he’s an undrafted rookie, the contract seems likely to be non-guaranteed. If it includes Exhibit 10 language, it would create a path for Kuhse to be converted to a two-way deal or to earn a bonus worth up to $50K if he becomes an affiliate player for the Austin Spurs, San Antonio’s G League team.

The Spurs currently have 18 players officially under contract, including 14 on guaranteed salaries. Keita Bates-Diop and Tre Jones are on standard deals that aren’t fully guaranteed, while Dominick Barlow and Jordan Hall are the team’s two-way players. San Antonio has also reportedly reached deals with Alize Johnson and Kyler Edwards.
