The San Antonio Spurs announced on Wednesday that they have officially re-signed Rudy Gay and Davis Bertans. As always with team policy, the terms of their contracts were not disclosed, but Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reported the deal for Gay was worth one year at $10 million. The deal for Bertans is reportedly two years for $14.5 million.
Davis Bertans: Happy to say that I’m staying in San Antonio for at least 2 more years. Thanks to @spurs for putting the trust in me and I can promise that I will pour my heart and soul to help this team win! Can’t wait for the new season.
Chuck Miketinac: Davis Bertan's agent, Happy Walters, said there were other suitors chasing Davis, and there would have been an offer sheet for a bit more money from an unnamed team, but Bertans thinks the Spurs are the best place for him going forward. More coming up at 9:45 on Max Sports.
Citing an anonymous source, the international basketball website Sportando reported Monday that Bertans has agreed to terms with the Spurs on a four-year, $20 million deal. The report, though, is premature, a league source, as well as a spokesperson for Bertans’ agent, said.
While it’s true the Spurs have shown heavy interest in retaining Bertans and are working toward hammering out a deal, no agreement has been reached, the league source said. A spokesperson for Bertans’ agent, Happy Walters, agreed, saying of the report, “It’s not true.”

Darren Wolfson: Corey Brewer and Davis Bertans are two more FAs that the #Twolves have planted seeds on. 2018 falls in line with 2016 and 2017 FA process that involved reaching out on dozens upon dozens of players.

We had very specific goals in mind for how he wanted him to play, what we wanted him to try and achieve. We’re extraordinarily happy with him. He did all of that.
