The Spurs assigned Metu to the G League's Austin Spurs on Sunday, Jabari Young of The Athletic reports. After one-day stints in the NBA, San Antonio dispatched Metu and Keldon Johnson back to the G League so both could partake in Austin's game Sunday against the Stockton Kings. Metu has seen garbage time in four NBA contests this season, averaging 3.3 points and 2.5 rebounds in 4.5 minutes.
Metu has been recalled from the Austin Spurs, per RealGM. Metu should provide frontcourt depth for San Antonio, though it would be surprising if he saw more than spare minutes barring a rash of injuries to the Spurs' bigs.
Metu was sent back to the G League on Friday, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports. Metu was on the Spurs' NBA squad for all of one day. He got a single minute of action Thursday against the Thunder but did not make any impact on the stat sheet. He'll return to Austin for now.
Metu was recalled from the G League on Thursday, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports. Metu will be available for Thursday's game against the Thunder, though he likely won't factor into the rotation, as he's played just four minutes all season.
Metu was assigned to the G League on Wednesday, Mike Wright of ESPN reports. The second-year big man has appeared in just one game thus far, so he'll head down to the Austin Spurs for an opportunity at more regular run as the G League season gets underway.
