Spurs sign sharpshooter Ledbetter to camp deal

Austin Spurs guard Jeff Ledbetter is headed to training camp with the NBA's Spurs.

The San Antonio Spurs have signed free agent combo guard Jeff Ledbetter to an Exhibit 10 contract, according to Nicola Lupo of Sportando.

Ledbetter is 31 years old and spent most of his pro career playing in the G League, making a name for himself with his strong outside shooting.

He has spent each of the past three seasons with the Austin Spurs, the parent club’s G League affiliate.

Last season, the 6-foot-3 Ledbetter averaged 13.6 points on 58 percent shooting in 19 games, before leaving the G League to play in Mexico.

An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, minimum salary deal. It includes an Exhibit 10 attachment, which allows teams to convert it to a two-way deal as they see fit.

Ledbetter would seem likely to head back to Austin to start the season.
