Chandler Hutchinson bounced from the Bulls to the Wizards at the trade deadline last year, then moved on again this offseason to San Antonio when he was included in the five-team Russell Westbrook trade.

But Hutchinson was never in the Spurs plans, so on Saturday they waived him, a story first reported by Fred Katz of The Athletic.

The Spurs had 17 guaranteed contracts on the roster and that has to be trimmed to 15 by training camp, so they made their call. As noted, Hutchinson will still be cashing checks because his $4 million was guaranteed.

Hutchinson was the No. 22 pick in the first round in 2018 but has never found a groove and developed into a rotation player, either for the Bulls or Wizards. Part of that was injuries (he had shoulder surgery in 2020), and then last season he missed time after testing positive for COVID-19.

Hutchinson is now an unrestricted free agent.
