San Antonio Spurs likely cut No. 2: Quinndary Weatherspoon

Over his two-year stint with the Spurs so far, Quinndary Weatherspoon has spent most of his time shining in Austin. Finding minutes in the Alamo City, however, has been a struggle. Quinndary has shown some promise when he gets time, specifically on the defensive end of the floor. Unfortunately, the Spurs are just too loaded at his position to give him more than the six minutes per game he's been getting.

Beyond the starting unit, Weatherspoon has to contend with guys like Lonnie Walker, Keita Bates-Diop, and Devin Vassell, who all have shown they deserve consistent roles within San Antonio's system.

As a 6-3 shooting guard, Weatherspoon would have more to offer a team that's not already loaded at the wing spot. It's pointless to look at his NBA stats, as he's only seen the floor for 200 combined minutes. His 2019-20 season in Austin, however, gives more of an indication of what he could bring with solid playing time.

Quinndary averaged 14.8 points, 5.1 assists, and 1.1 steals per game through 36 games while shooting 33.6 percent from beyond the arc.

Unless the Spurs decide to have yet another conservative offseason in which they stand pat, I don't see them having room for Weatherspoon on the roster.
