The San Antonio Spurs today announced that, per his request, the team has released Malik Hairston from his contract.
The guard is reportedly set to sign in Italy.
“We’ve enjoyed having Malik in our organization,” said Spurs General Manager RC Buford. “He is a hard-worker, a talented basketball player and an outstanding young man. After Malik approached us we were happy to honor his request as it will, after he clears waivers, allow him to pursue an excellent overseas basketball opportunity.”
