The San Antonio Spurs are signing forward Jordan Hull to a one-year contract. The news comes five days after the team cut Josh Primon. The 20-year-old left St. Joseph’s unscathed.
The Spurs terminated Hall’s two-way contract last week. Charles Bassey replaced the New Jersey native on the roster. After cutting Prime, San Antonio has $4.14 million (2022-23) and $4.34 million (2023-24) left in cap space.
According to some NBA betting sites, the Spurs have the seventh lowest odds to win the championship in 2023. After the Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets continue to struggle, a few sportsbooks have increased their playoff chances.
