Spurs To Work Out 2 More

By mrehome

Yesterday Ridiculous Upside stated that the San Antonio Spurs worked out Xavier Henry and Paul George. Today they are stating that they will be working out two players, one for sure, the other a possibility.

Here are the bios that were pasted on Ridiculous Upside:

Jeremy Wise:

Jeremy Wise is the player I’m most familiar with as he played this past season with the Bakersfield Jam.  A former undersized shooting guard out of Southern Miss, Wise transformed his game into that of a legitimate starting point guard in the NBA Development League.  I’m not sure the comparison is fair, but I kept finding myself trying to compare him to Mike Taylor throughout the season – the only player to be drafted out of the D-League thus far.  He’s a great scorer, though a somewhat streaky shooter.  As far as I’m concerned, I’d consider him an “improving” defender, though that wasn’t his strong suit this season.  After a season playing with and against NBA caliber athletes, I expect he’ll be able to help himself in NBA workouts (and have heard he already has with a couple of teams).

Dominique Jones (Possibly):

Dominique Jones will be drafted either in the late-first or early-second round of next month’s NBA Draft, a spot where the Wizards own two picks (Cleveland’s first, the last pick of the first round, and their own second).  As it stands, everyone from ESPN’s David Thorpe and Chad Ford to Draft Express’ Jonathan Givony has been raving about his stock rising or how big of a steal he’ll be whenever a team drafts him.  I haven’t watched him play enough to give an accurate scouting report, but Jonathan Givony had a pretty good one-sentence breakdown that seems to echo everyone’s feelings when he said “Jones is a physically imposing 6-4 combo guard with an NBA-ready frame, an excellent wingspan and the aggressive mentality to take advantage of it.”
