Sources: Spurs to release Finley
By Marc Stein
The San Antonio Spurs have agreed to release former All-Star guard Michael Finley later Monday to allow Finley to pursue opportunities with other teams, according to sources close to the situation.
Finley was a key member of San Antonio's 2007 championship team after leaving the Spurs' longtime rivals in Dallas but has struggled to earn playing time this season from coach Gregg Popovich.
As long as the Spurs waive the 36-year-old before midnight Monday, Finley will be eligible to play in the playoffs for another team.

Sad to see such a great guy leave our team. He's been productive and clutch over the last few seasons but hasn't been able to find as much PT as he'd prefer here in San Antonio. I wish Mike the best.
