The San Antonio Spurs have hired ESPN's David Telep as scouting coordinator for San Antonio’s draft prep according to Yahoo! Sports.
San Antonio's finalizing deal with well-respected recruiting analyst Dave Telep to join Spurs' front office, league sources tell Y! Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) September 1, 2013
Telep was ESPN’s Senior National Recruiting Analyst and considered one of the best in the business.
This move by the Spurs shores up the front office considering they have lost prominent front office people such as Sam Presti, Danny Ferry, and countless others in seasons past. Telep will definitely give the Spurs and edge in college scouting especially with the end of the Spurs "Big 3" era coming to a close soon.
Great move by the Spurs. Now our chances of drafting an amazing player/diamond in the rough just sky rocketed. Sam Presti got us Tony Parker. Sam Presti then left, and got OKC Durant, Westbrook, Ibaka, and James Harden. David Telep is about to show Sam Presti how it's done!!!!
