According to Sportando.com, San Antonio Spurs 2013 NBA Draft pick Deshaun Thomas will be heading to Spain next season to play with Estudiantes.
Thomas, drafted in the second round, showed his knack for scoring and his versatility when he suited up for the Spurs Summer League squad. However, with the team having just one roster spot left, it appears San Antonio may be looking at a different type of player to fill that remaining spot over Thomas.
What do you think Spurs fans? Do you like this move for Thomas?
Thomas should be on the Spurs roster. The Spurs screwed up big time here. The Spurs are beginning to show signs of being a franchise that blows opportunities when it comes to losing talented players. I think the Spurs run is about over.
@dumbspurs blown opportunity by retaining his rights while he gets good experience and does not take a roster spot or a dime from spurs? Ya, BIG screw up. smh
Jeff, you do know that playing in the D-League would have taken up a Spurs roster spot--yes? Going overseas is the best way for him to play while not taking up a Spurs roster spot.
umm. not sure how i feel, the front office cant possibly believe keeping the backup small forward spot is a good idea. we need a kawhi backup. i guess the office wants a veteran who will actually play in the playoffs
Yes ! We keep his rights, he gets time on the floor, and has time to focus on defense. See you next year Deshaun !
