San Antonio Spurs: The DeMarre Carroll buyout is symbolic of this season

It’s been clear as day the San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and veteran forward DeMarre Carroll didn’t see eye-to-eye from a basketball perspective, which is why the 33-year-old only saw 135 combined minutes for the silver and black.

Newly-appointed general manager Brian Wright extended the duration of Carroll’s contract from two to three years after trading sharpshooter Davis Bertans to the Washington Wizards to facilitate a contract with Marcus Morris. As we all know, Morris reneged his deal with San Antonio, deeming this loss unnecessary entirely.

There are no two ways around it—the entire situation was botched by Wright and San Antonio’s front office.
