The San Antonio Spurs announced today that they have signed former Virginia standout point guard London Perrantes.

Perrantes had a very productive summer as he played for the Miami Heat in the 2017 MGM Resorts Summer League and 2017 Orlando Pro Summer League. Between the two leagues, Perrantes averaged 10.9 points, 4.9 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.42 steals in an average 28.2 minutes per game.

Over the course of his career at Virginia, Perrantes was invaluable. He finished his career with the UVA-record in games (138), starts (134), and minutes (4,425). Perrantes also sits at second in three-point percentage (40.9%), fourth in most wins played (108), and assists (569), and fifth in free throw percentage (81.2%).

From the Los Angeles area (Crespi Carmelite HS), Perrantes made an immediate and lasting impact on Virginia Basketball, helping bring the program into national prominence under Tony Bennett.

San Antonio and head coach Greg Popovich are getting a dynamic player in Perrantes. He is proficient handling the ball...

...and is an assassin on the court from three.

Perrantes becomes the fifth Wahoo that is actively playing in the NBA, joining Mike Scott (Washington Wizards), Joe Harris (Brooklyn Nets), Justin Anderson (Philadelphia 76ers), and reigning NBA Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon (Milwaukee Bucks). No information on the contract was immediately available.
