Weatherspoon contributed 19 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-9 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 25 minutes during the Spurs' 79-78 loss to the Suns in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday. The second-round pick paced the Spurs in scoring for the night, although it was his turnover in the closing seconds that sealed the win for the Suns. Weatherspoon is averaging 19.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals across two games in Las Vegas. He's already signed a two-way deal for the coming season after a solid career at Mississippi State, so he should have plenty of opportunity hone his skills in the G League this coming season.
The Spurs signed Weatherspoon on Monday to a two-way contract, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports. San Antonio evidently saw enough from Weatherspoon, the 49th overall pick in June's draft, during his first three performances in summer league to hand him one of their two two-way roster spots. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound shooting guard is averaging 15.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 23.7 minutes per contest between the Salt Lake City and Las Vegas Summer Leagues. He'll likely see the majority of his playing time with the G League's Austin Spurs once the regular season arrives.
