San Antonio Spurs guard Lonnie Walker is winning the offseason as he prepares for a breakout year in his second NBA season.

The San Antonio Spurs didn’t get much production out of Lonnie Walker during his rookie season as he continued the trend of San Antonio’s first round picks spending their first year primarily in the G League.

That formula has worked out well for Dejounte Murray and Derrick White in consecutive years, and the Spurs are hoping Walker takes a similar jump in year two like those first round guards before him.

Walker has been making all the right moves this offseason.

First, he put up some impressive numbers at the Utah Summer League averaging 19.5 points per game while shooting 52% from the floor and grabbing 15 total rebounds over two games.

Then, he exploded during his limited playing time in the Las Vegas Summer League with 30 points per game on 58% shooting with 4 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in two contests before getting shut down for the summer.

Video also surfaced of Lonnie draining three after three in a workout at his old school in Miami, and Walker made another appearance on Twitter throwing down dunks in a pickup session with Atlanta legends Gucci Mane and Michael Vick.

While Dejounte Murray and Derrick White have turned out to be incredibly solid picks late in the first round, neither of them have the pure superstar potential that Lonnie Walker possesses.

Walker has done everything he’s needed to do this summer to prepare for a humongous second season, and he’s even finding time to have a little fun while he works on his game.
