A former Big Ten player is now a San Antonio Spur.
The Spurs are giving a Summer League star a chance.
After renouncing its rights to Jonathon Simmons in a shocking move, San Antonio reportedly reached an agreement with Brandon Paul.
The former Illinois star has been tearing up the Summer League with the Cleveland Cavaliers. And now, according to Adrian Wojnarowski, Paul is headed to San Antonio.
From his report:
San Antonio also reached agreement on a guaranteed deal with Euroleague guard Brandon Paul, sources told ESPN. Paul, who played collegiately at Illinois, spent the 2016-17 season in Turkey and participated with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 Las Vegas Summer League.
Before he left the Cavs’ Summer League team a few days ago, Paul averaged 15.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.7 steals per game on 47 percent shooting from the field. After going undrafted in the 2013 NBA Draft, Paul went on to play in the Euroleague.
