Spurs renounce rights to Jonathon Simmons, making him unrestricted free agent

Spurs renounce rights to Jonathon Simmons, making him unrestricted free agent

The Spurs renounced his rights, which means they are no longer able to match another team's offer, but San Antonio is still negotiating with Simmons and hopes to re-sign him.

Simmons appeared in 78 games for the Spurs last season and saw his minutes increase from 17.8 during the season to 20.4 during the playoffs as San Antonio reached the Western Conference finals.

After talks on a new contract stalled, a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns was presented. However, the Spurs backed out of the trade because Chandler has two years and $26 million remaining on his contract.

Sources told the San Antonio Express-News that Simmons and his representatives were not pleased about the negotiations with the Spurs. The team granted the request Thursday morning, the last day teams can pull qualifying offers.

Before the Spurs took a chance on the 27-year-old Simmons, he faced a long battle to make it to the National Basketball Association.

Multiple teams were heavily involved throughout Simmons' restricted free agency and became more engaged when he was on the free market.

After an impressive showing, the Spurs signed him to an National Basketball Association contract.

This contrasts Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN's report, who said Simmons and the Spurs were still talking. The guard averaged 10.5 points and shot at a solid 46 percent from the field in the postseason. There, he averaged 6.1 points and 1.9 rebounds on 45 percent shooting.
