Bonner announced his retirement Friday, Jeff McDonald of The San Antonio Express News reports. Bonner's tenure with the Spurs came to an end this past offseason and he had not found another team to latch on with in the 2016-17 campaign. The 36-year-old was a career 41.4 percent shooter from three-point range and he played on two championship teams while with the Spurs.
Bonner (coach's decision) was inactive for Sunday's 111-97 Game 4 win over the Thunder. With the Spurs at full health during this postseason, Bonner has been relegated to one of the two inactive spots on the roster. He's failed to appear in any of the Spurs' eight playoff games.
Bonner scored six points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt) in Wednesday's regular season finale against the Mavericks. With a number of regulars resting, Bonner drew the start at power forward and played his second-highest minutes total of the season. Expect Bonner to shift back to a deep bench role once the postseason begins.
Bonner will start in Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports. Bonner hasn't played much at all this season but with the Spurs resting most of their starters prior to the playoffs beginning he's getting a chance to start. Look for Bonner to get a large minutes increase before resuming his normal role once the playoffs begin.
Bonner is active for Saturday's game against the Kings, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports. Bonner was active Wednesday but did not take the floor. However, with LaMarcus Aldridge (migraine) and Tim Duncan (rest) sidelined, Bonner could be primed to see his first minutes since February on Saturday.
