Bryn Forbes finalizing 2-year deal with San Antonio
Forbes averaged 6.9 points, 1.4 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game in his second season with the team after being coming undrafted out of Michigan State.
The 6-foot-3 guard bounced back from a rookie season with minimal participation to log an average of 19 minutes with the rotation, shooting 42.1 percent from the floor and 39 percent from deep.
The Spurs will need to lock down guards after Tony Parker chose to sign with the Charlotte Hornets earlier last week and Manu Ginobili potentially retiring for good at some point this offseason after another relatively quick playoff exit at the hands of the Golden State Warriors.
Forbes is one of the three restricted free agents the Spurs brought into this offseason and the last in priority after Kyle Anderson’s four-year, $37 million offer went unmatched by the team, now a member of the Memphis Grizzlies.
Given the state of the franchise at the moment, with the entire Kawhi Leonard debacle still looming over like a storm, this was a solid win for San Antonio in the offseason. Not every signing has to be a star. Good role guys matter, too.
