Former San Antonio Spurs guard Joshua Primo deleted the waivers and became an unrestricted free agent, sources told ESPN Monday.
Primo, seeded at No. 12 in the 2021 NBA draft, was suddenly quashed Friday night after multiple allegations that he exposed himself to women, sources told ESPN.
There is keen interest from numerous NBA teams in overseeing Primo’s future, team leaders told ESPN, but claims the 19-year-old waiver has committed a team to pay him over $8 million in salary through the 2023-24 season Dollars – given the uncertainty of his situation, represents a significant risk.
Attorney Tony Buzbee told ESPN on Saturday that he was held down by a woman who worked for Spurs and says Primo exposed himself to her. Buzbee and the woman are scheduled to hold a press conference Thursday morning. Buzbee also represented several women in the sexual misconduct lawsuits against Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson.
The Spurs are now responsible for the remainder of Primo’s salary of $4.1 million this year and $4.3 million in 2023-24.
In a statement to ESPN on Friday, Primo said he suffered “prior trauma” and “will now take that time to focus more fully on my mental health management.”
