Spurs Sign First-Round Pick Vassell

The Spurs have signed lottery pick Devin Vassell, according to a team press release.

The 6’7” Vassell was chosen with the 11th overall pick, becoming the first Spurs lottery selection since 1997.

As a sophomore last season, Vassell averaged 12.7 PPG, 5.1 RPG and 1.6 APG in 28.7 MPG  while shooting 41.5% from 3-point range.

    IMO
    Vassell and Haliburton fall out of top 10 just because they are skinny.
    They have better Overall skills than any of top 10.

      Haliburton was a Top 5 talent in this draft. Too bad he ended up in SAC. I was hoping he’d fall 3 spots further to the Celtics at 14. He’s in NBA purgatory now.

        Please? He is in a future winning team. Not in the next season but in two three years.

      So a player who is 6-6, 230 pounds is the ideal body type in the NBA?

        Pretty sure he meant, if they were just more towards the average body type, but idk, I could be wrong..

        However, Dray doesnt have the “ideal” body..That’s pretty obvious..lol

    Hope to see this guy succeed. Spurs have some ground to make up, but doubting Pop is like doubting Bill belycheck. And lets just say I wont make THAT mistake again…if you know what I mean…

    I thought the Warriors would trade down for Vassell. Maybe they should have, saved some money, bought some depth, but they were convinced they needed more jump thump bump. And Oubre. I have them for 14th.
