The San Antonio Spurs have announced their Summer League schedule, which will be the first time their new rookies step onto an NBA court.
San Antonio Spurs fans had been excited for months to see what the organization would do with their three picks in this year’s draft, and after Thursday night’s festivities we finally have names to put next to those draft slots.
Luka Samanic, Keldon Johnson, and Quinndary Weatherspoon will all be on the roster for the Spurs’ Summer League schedule that builds up to the main event in Las Vegas, which has become bigger than ever before in recent years.
Reprted undrafted signee Kenny Williams out of North Carolina will also be on San Antonio’s Summer League squad.
This year’s Summer League schedule will allow Spurs fans to familiarize themselves with their top pick Luka Samanic, who most NBA fans haven’t seen outside of some YouTube highlight reels of his time in Europe.
