SAN ANTONIO – The NBA's 2019 summer free agency frenzy begins Sunday evening.

The Spurs are not expected to be major players with big name free agents, but they have options and exemptions to use. Here's a look at some of the rumors and players possibly linked to San Antonio:

Versatile forward DeMarre Carroll is signing a 2-year deal worth $13 million with the Spurs, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Carroll averaged 11.2 points and 5.2 rebs per game with Brooklyn last season. Carroll can play either forward position and is a good defender. 

The Spurs used the midlevel exception to get the deal done. Barring a trade, the Spurs are not expected to make many more acquisitions during this free agency period.


Rudy Gay is expected to re-sign with the Spurs, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

The deal is reportedly worth $32 million over two years.

Gay averaged 13.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game last season, his second with the Spurs.

The move was mostly expected as Gay has had two productive seasons in San Antonio following an Achilles injury.

The Spurs were allowed to go over the cap for Gay's deal because they have his bird rights.

They would not have been able to pay another player that amount.


Al-Farouq Aminu has signed with Orlando and Bojan Bogdanovic with Utah. Both were reportedly linked to the Spurs. 

Hornets center Frank Kaminsky is still available.
