(Sports Network) - We've become so accustomed to the San Antonio Spurs
drafting late and turning out spectacular NBA players.
That streak may have ended.
Jean-Charles is a marginal prospect who will probably stay overseas, which is
just fine for the Spurs. They can wait until he comes to Alamo City to turn
him into an important role player.
Thomas is a big-time scorer, but a horrendous defensive player. This is the
type of kid Gregg Popovich can work with and mold into a productive player in
When you're the Spurs, you don't need huge impact guys right away. Yes, they
plucked Kawhi Leonard a few drafts ago and he's an All-Star in waiting. But
this draft seems like a San Antonio special, just without the promise of the
picks as years past.
