The Spurs were looking for veteran help behind Kawhi Leonard and found it in a former Mavericks player.
the Spurs just signed Josh Howard to a non-guaranteed contract, according to the San Antonio Express-News. Howard is coming off a second knee surgery in the past three years, so there is a small risk in the signing.
Reports are that the Spurs still may waive Howard, so they can send him to the D-League to find out if he can still play.
As such, it is likely the next step in Howard’s journey might come not in San Antonio, but a few miles up Interstate-35 inAustin.
NBA rules allow a team’s final three cuts of the preseason to be allocated to the Development League club of its choosing. If the Spurs were to waive Howard before Nov. 1, they could place him in Austin – provided he signs a D-League contract – and monitor his progress there.
