John Holland was the last player to be added to the San Antonio Spurs training camp roster. The 6-foot-5 swingman had low chances to make the team, making a signing elsewhere not very surprising.
He did not play in either of the Spurs first two preseason games.
John Holland last played in France’s LNB Pro A league for BCM Gravelines-Dunkerque, averaging 10.9 points and 3.2 rebounds on 49% shooting from the field.
