Former Clemson standout waived by Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs announced on Monday that they have waived forward Jaron Blossomgame.
Blossomgame averaged 3.7 points and 1.7 rebounds in 6.3 minutes of action in three preseason games. He is yet to appear in a regular season NBA game.
The 25-year old is more than likely headed back to Austin of the G-League unless he is claimed off of waivers by another NBA team.
He spent the last year with the Austin Toros and the Las Vegas Summer League. During the NBGL regular season, he averaged a team-leading 16.5 points, 8.2 rebounds (most on the team), and 1.4 assists per game.
In the Summer league, the 6-foot-7 forward averaged 13.0 points and a team-high 7.6 rebounds in 25.8 minutes per game.
He was the 59th overall selection, the 29th pick of the second round, by the San Antonio Spurs in the 2017 NBA Draft.
He finished his four-year Clemson career with 87 games in double figures in scoring, and 32 games with at least 20 points, both of which are top-10 totals in school history. He finished his career ranked fifth in Clemson record books with 1,733 points and eighth with 831 rebounds. He is one of only three players in Tiger history, along with Trevor Booker and Elden Campbell, to post at least 1,700 points and 800 rebounds in a career.
I want to thank the San Antonio Spurs front office, coaches, and staff for giving me the opportunity to compete in my first NBA training camp. I am very lucky to have been a part of such a first class organization from top to bottom.— Jaron Blossomgame (@JaronBgame) October 12, 2018
