SEPTEMBER 26: As expected, the Pistons have waived Edwards, according to NBA.com’s official transaction log.
Edwards, 23, reportedly agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Spurs the day after the draft, but that deal was never officially completed. He also spent Summer League with San Antonio, though he didn’t get much playing time — he averaged 8.6 MPG in four games, per RealGM.
Edwards spent his first three college years at Texas Tech before transferring to Houston for the 2021/22 season. He averaged 13.8 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 3.2 APG and 1.0 SPG in 37 appearances (34.1 MPG) as a senior for the Cougars. Edwards opted to forgo his final year of NCAA eligibility and go pro this year.
Edwards’ Exhibit 10 contract, which is non-guaranteed, would make him eligible for a bonus worth up to $50K if he’s waived before the start of the season and spends at least 60 days with the the Motor City Cruise, Detroit’s G League affiliate.
