The San Antonio Spurs have signed Josh Davis, last of San Diego State, to a multi-year contract. The amount of guaranteed money is not yet known.
Davis graduated from San Diego State last season after transferring in from Tulane, where he had spent the previous two seasons after spending his freshman campaign at North Carolina State. The 6’8 athletic forward saw his offensive game regress significantly last season, down to 7.7 points per game from 17.6, shooting only 45.5% from the field down from 49.2%, and struggling badly at the free throw line, hitting only 47.2% from where he had previously shot 71.6%. Nevertheless, he brings to the table athleticism, prolific rebounding and versatile defense, and recently played well for the Charlotte Hornets summer league team, averaging 8.6 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. Should he not make the Spurs’s roster, is a logical and perhaps likely candidate for allocation to the team’s D-League affiliate, the Austin Toros.
With Davis’s signing, the Spurs’s roster now stands at 17. Davis will likely battle fellow camp signees JaMychal Green and Bryce Cotton for what might at best be one roster spot.
