Richard Jefferson practiced Friday, the first day of Spurs training camp, despite speculation that the team was planning to use the amnesty provision on his contract.
“I’m a Spur right now,” Jefferson said after practice. “That’s pretty much the best way to describe it. There’s a lot of speculation across the league, with the short amount a time everybody has to work their rosters.”
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said the team has not employed the amnesty provision on Jefferson or anybody else.
“He’s no different than anybody. He’s a Spur,” Popovich said. “We didn’t amnesty anybody.”
