Sources: The San Antonio Spurs have renounced guard Jonathon Simmons, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Simmons' agent, Cervando Tejada, informed The Vertical that his client is focused on signing elsewhere.

This is likely the Spurs' way of acknowledging Simmons will be too expensive for their blood.

After talks on a new contract stalled, a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns was proposed that would have brought center Tyson Chandler of the Phoenix Suns to the Spurs for Simmons.

Multiple teams were heavily involved throughout Simmons' restricted free agency, but now will be more engaged with the unexpected renouncing of his rights, league sources said. The team granted the request Thursday morning, the last day teams can pull qualifying offers.

The 27-year-old Simmons was a late bloomer in the National Basketball Association.

He averaged 6.2 points per game during the 2016-17 regular season.

After an impressive showing, the Spurs signed him to an National Basketball Association contract.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Spurs have reached agreement on a guaranteed deal with Euroleague guard Brandon Paul, who played in Turkey previous year and suited up for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 Las Vegas Summer League. He played in 55 games, averaging six points in 14.8 minutes a night.

In the 2017 playoffs, Simmons broke out with 10.5 points on 45 shooting and 35 percent from beyond the arc.
