Spurs place Ron Mercer on waivers

San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) – The San Antonio Spurs Friday placed guard
Ron Mercer on waivers.

Mercer was obtained by San Antonio along with swingman Hedo Turkoglu on July
24, 2003 as part of a three-team trade with Indiana and Sacramento. In the
deal, the Pacers received forwards Danny Ferry and Scot Pollard, while the
Kings acquired center Brad Miller.

In 39 games this season for the Spurs, Mercer averaged 5.0 points and 1.3
rebounds per outing.

Meanwhile, the club activated guard Jason Hart from the injured list. He had
been sidelined with left patella tendinitis. Hart has averaged 3.7 ppg over 33
contests this year.
