Report: Spurs forward David Lee will decline player option

Another player giving the Spurs cap space relief

After news broke on Tuesday that Pau Gasol reportedly declined his player option and is working on a new deal with the San Antonio Spurs, it appears David Lee will also be providing the team with some financial relief.

According to Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News:

Gasol declined his option to work on a longer deal with the club, but again according to Tom Osborn, David Lee might not be interested in re-signing:

Lee averaged 7.6 points and 5.3 rebounds in 79 games in 2016-17, but his solid season ended with a partially torn patella on his left knee in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Lee managed to avoid surgery and was given a six-week timetable to recover and should be back in training by July.

We don’t know if he’ll be re-joining the Spurs.
