Wesley Witherspoon Rumors

Rookie small forward Wesley Witherspoon remains on the Spurs’ camp roster for now but is expected to be waived and ticketed for the Development League, most likely the Austin Toros, before the start of the season. It is the same fate probably awaiting another rookie forward, Alabama’s JaMychal Green, who the Spurs signed recently in hopes of bolstering their D-League affiliate.
If the Spurs keep Witherspoon and Green on their camp roster until Saturday, those two players can eschew the crapshoot of the D-League draft and proceed directly to the Austin Toros. Provided they agree to a standard D-League contract, of course. Neither Witherspoon nor Green would count against the Spurs’ 15-man NBA roster in that instance.
With training camp set to begin next week, the Spurs have added a couple more more warm bodies to the mix: 6-9 rookie forward Wesley Witherspoon and 6-0 veteran guard Tre Kelley. Not to go all negative, but with the 15-man roster almost set for this season, they both have about as much chance of making the team as I do. That said, they might catch the team’s eye and earn an apprenticeship in Austin. Indeed, that’s where Kelley played in 2010-11, averaging 9.4 points and 3.4 assists in 11 games.
