With the penultimate pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Spurs selected Clemson F Jaron Blossomgame.

The 6-foot-5 combo guard averaged 18.3 points in his lone with the Buffaloes.

Obviously roster spots are limited, and with the Spurs fresh off a trip to the Western Conference Finals it's unlikely that White will see too many minutes in is first year.

"Our goal for this team is to continue to compete for championships and LaMarcus helps us do that, and that's where we sit with LaMarcus", Buford said.

Building upon earlier talks that had the Cleveland Cavaliers in discussions with the San Antonio Spurs for veteran guard Danny Green, it seems that another player's name has surfaced. Tad Boyle routinely said he was one of the best players that he had coached and wished he was on a different one of his team's. "So, that's where we sit with LaMarcus". "You have the doubters, you just put a little chip on your shoulder. I think he will fit in very well". White knows how to draw contact as well, evidenced by his 182 free throw attempts. He's a great 3-point shooter and he's no slouch on the defensive end which is where Cleveland was at their weakest last season.

Jackson, 20, was named Big 12 Freshman of the Year with the Jayhawks, averaging 16.3 points per game, along with 7.4 rebounds, three assists, 1.7 steals and 1.1 blocks from the power forward position.

"They feel it's time to move on", a source told the Express-News.
