This summer the Spurs signed Alize Johnson and the latter then had to make his place in the group. Finally, the infield was cut before the start of the regular season.
Alize Johnson then bounced back in the G League, still with the Spurs, in Austin. In six games, he averaged 22.2 points and 10.7 rebounds. That prompted the Spurs to recall him to the NBA to offer him a one-year contract, ESPN reports.
For this, the Texan leaders decided to cut Jordan Hall, a very young wing who has only played 83 minutes and scored 28 points since the start of the season.
For Alize Johnson, this is a great opportunity, because after his visits in Indiana and Brooklyn between 2018 and 2021, he chained small contracts last season, in Chicago, Washington and New Orleans, without convincing.
The San Antonio Spurs are signing forward Alize Johnson to a one-way deal, his agent said @GeorgeLangberg told ESPN. Johnson averaged 22 points and 10 rebounds for Austin of the G League this season.
