The San Antonio Spurs have announced that they have assigned rookie point guard Cory Joseph to the Austin Toros of the NBA D-League.
Joseph played in 25 games for the Spurs (1.8 points, 1.2 assists in 8 minutes) and has already spent time in Austin with the Toros for four games from January 4-11.
In those games, Joseph averaged 11.3 points, 3.5 assists, and 3.5 rebounds in 32 minutes of action.
Joseph is in action right now as the Toros are currently playing the Texas Legends.
Moving Joseph to the Toros can mean one thing, injured guard Manu Ginobili will most likely be returning to the Spurs Sunday, as the Spurs host the Denver Nuggets.
The Spurs are finally getting to the point of full strength and rotations will be most important as the team prepares to get their squad ready for the second half of the season and the crucial stretch run in April. With Joseph in Austin, the Spurs will have Tony Parker, Ginobili, Gary Neal, T.J. Ford, and James Anderson as the battalion of guards going forth.
One of the SN writers says that Dawson was not signed was money ( about $100k). If true, Holt has lost his mind, and we will see CJ back in 10 days.
sounds interesting bc your all right that we need at least 13 so for sure the spurs are going to do something just wonder what it will be?
this could also mean a few things. The Spurs are looking to gather a few players in a trade or they could also leave that space open for Julian Wright, he was signed by the Toros, he could be a decent pick up and pls he is young and has played in a few NBA games
I agree that leaves the roster at 12,but not sure about the minimum. I do agree with giving Joseph time in the D-league. I t will certainly help him if we need hm later.
Doesn't this leave the spurs at 12? League minimum is 13 so IF that leaves them at 12 then they have to be working something to bring in another body.
