San Antonio fills its two-way roster spots with a top wing
The San Antonio Spurs had one more move they could make to fill out their roster heading into the preseason.
The NBA’s new collective bargaining agreement allows teams to sign three players for two-way roster spots. According Michael Sotto of HoopsHypeThe Spurs signed their third today, agreeing to a two-way contract with Seth Millner.
Millner was a member of the Spurs’ summer league roster, where he averaged 5.3 points and 4.0 rebounds in 21.2 minutes per game. Labeled as a shooting wing, the 6-foot-7 undrafted rookie from Toledo struggled in summer league, hitting just 27.3% of his field goals and 23.1% from three.
Millner was a special shooter in college. In his final year with the Rockets he averaged 16.1 points and shot 49.6% from the field and 42% from three. San Antonio appears to be banking on his shooting ability being closer to his college numbers, rather than the relatively small summer league sample.
He joins Dominick Barlow and Sir’Jabari Rice as two-way players for the Spurs in the 2023-24 NBA season. Two-way players can appear in 50 games with the major league team and can play the remainder of the season with the G League affiliate Austin Spurs.
With the signing of Millner, the Spurs’ total roster number is 20. They will have to reduce that number to 18 by eliminating two guaranteed contracts from their roster for the start of the regular season.
