The San Antonio Spurs’ selection of Missouri guard Marcus Denmon at the end of the second round of last year’s NBA Draft was a bit of a head scratcher, especially considering the abundance of guards the Spurs already had on the roster.
However, with a a late second round pick, the chances of landing on an NBA team, even the one that drafted you, are slim.
Denmon joined last year’s Summer League squad as a bit of an unknown. He was definitely a capable scorer at Missouri, but at his size, he was a shooting guard in a point guard’s body. Denmon did say he had no problems playing at the point and would look to transition.
After a full season playing overseas in France and seeing him through several Summer League games, Denmon seems to have fulfilled on that. While he displayed the type of offense he had become known for with Missouri, he also showed off some passing ability.

Ryan Richards is the pure definition of potential. If any other NBA team had their hands on him they would be salivating at the thought of what he could bring this season. Most teams would have him on their roster just because well, that’s what other teams do. They make their decisions based on potential.
We all know the San Antonio Spurs take their time when it comes to prospects...
Deshaun Thomas' chances at making the San Antonio Spurs' final roster is admittedly slim. Don't feel sorry for him, though. He knew what he was getting into.
In five Summer League games, a tiny sample size, Thomas flashed a potent perimeter shot, especially in the pick-and-pop, and advanced basketball acuity, albeit against inferior competition.
Cory Joseph has been added to Canada's roster for the FIBA Americas tournament in Venezuela next month.
Joseph competed in the Vegas Summer League this month with the San Antonio Spurs.
The start of the Summer League wasn’t ideal for San Antonio Spurs big man Aron Baynes. He had a disappointing first game and needed to bounce back in the following games in order to show the improvement he has made this offseason.
Baynes did just that by averaging 12 points and 10.5 rebounds per game over his 4 games in Las Vegas. His individual post defense on Toronto...

Then, towards the end of last season and entering the postseason, Joseph...
