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.
There's some good news for San Antonio Spurs 2012 NBA draftee guard Marcus Denmon and his road to recovery from foot surgery.
As you may recall, Denmon broke his right foot in the opening game for French team Chalon-Elan. He underwent surgery to repair his broken right foot where a metal rod was placed in his foot to strengthen it and to avoid further injury.
Marcus Denmon is currently playing with French team Chalon-Elan, but is being monitored by the Spurs.
San Antonio Spurs 2012 NBA Draft pick Marcus Denmon is currently playing with French squad Chalon-Elan and is playing quite well. In a few friendly matches, Denmon is averaging 16.7 points leading the team in scoring.
But he is still a work in progress and the Spurs are closely watching his development on the court according to Chalon coach Beugnot Gregor via French site...

(59) Marcus Denmon, SG
Doesn’t it seem like the Spurs always turn their low picks into quality NBA players. Denmon has potential to be the next great Spurs success story. Had Denmon been a little taller he would have been a 1st round pick. Denmon is best known for his shooting ability. To be shocked for the next to the last pick...
Marcus Denmon was selected by the Spurs with the 59th overall pick of the 2012 draft.
