Andre Miller looks set to sign with the San Antonio Spurs after clearing the waivers on Saturday for the remainder of the season.
The 39-year-old will sign with the Western Conference side once he passes his physical but, according to Yahoo! Sports, Spurs will need to create a roster spot before the deal is completed.
The report states San Antonio will do that by waiving guard Ray McCallum, who they picked up during an offseason trade with the Sacramento Kings.
After reaching a contract buyout with the Minnesota Timberwolves before the March 1 deadline for waived players, Miller will be able to play in the postseason.
During his 17-year tenure in the NBA, the point guard has played for eight teams, averaging 12.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 6.6 assists in 1,291 games. His assist statistics rank him ninth on the NBA’s all-time assist list.
The Professor will be a valuable backcourt addition for the Spurs as he has averaged 3.4 points and 2.2 assists in his 17th season in the league.
Miller will be very happy that he is signing with the San Antonio-based franchise, as this will fulfill his desire to join a team that is a playoff contender. This might very well be his last chance to win a championship ring if the Spurs qualify for the playoffs.
