The San Antonio Spurs have made the decision to waive Javante McCoy, just days after signing him to an Exhibit 10 contract. The 25-year-old guard went undrafted out of Boston University in 2022 and had previously been waived by the Los Angeles Lakers last year. McCoy had recently been named to the opening night roster for the South Bay Lakers, the G League affiliate of the Los Angeles Lakers. He had shown promise during his time with South Bay, averaging 14.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game.
According to sources, the San Antonio Spurs currently have the 19th-ranked odds to win the 2024 championship, as reported by various NBA betting sites. The odds seem to favor teams such as the New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Minnesota Timberwolves. It remains to be seen how the Spurs will fare in the upcoming season based on these predictions.
After being waived by the Spurs, McCoy is expected to join the Austin Spurs in the G League for the upcoming season. It seems like a natural fit for the guard, providing him with an opportunity to continue his development and potentially return to the NBA in the future.
McCoy had an impressive college career at Boston University, starting in 138 out of the 147 games he played during five seasons. He averaged 13.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game. In his final season, he had career highs of 17.4 points and 1.1 steals per game. McCoy’s strong performances led to him being named to the first-team All-Patriot League.
Ultimately, McCoy’s Exhibit 10 contract with the Spurs did not materialize into a spot on the regular season roster. However, he has the opportunity to earn a bonus of anywhere between $5,000 and $75,000 by spending at least 60 days with the Austin Spurs in the G League.
The Spurs now have 20 players under contract, leaving one spot open on their offseason roster. The team currently has two players occupying the two-way slots, and according to the new CBA, each NBA team can sign a maximum of three two-way players. It will be interesting to see what moves the Spurs make to finalize their roster before the start of the regular season.
