The San Antonio Spurs waived Corey Maggette, Myck Kabongo and Marcus Cousins Tuesday according to reports.

Maggette was the lone veteran left in camp and was hoping that this would be his chance to be on a contending team.  As it also has been reported, Maggette may be left to retire as he did not have any other offers from teams around the league.  Maggette stated that he if did not make the Spurs that he may just retire.

In two preseason games with the Spurs, he averaged 6.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists. If he does choose to retire, he will leave his career with an average of 16.0 points per game spanning over his 14 seasons.

It is not a surprise that Kabongo and Cousins were going to be released from the team.  With 14 spots locked, many thought the Spurs were looking to fill their last spot with a back-up to Kawhi Leonard.

Looks like Gregg Popovich will be heading into another season with 14.
