Spurs' Darel Poirier: Solid contributions off bench
Poirer delivered 10 points (3-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 19 minutes during the Spurs' 80-72 loss to the Hawks in a Las Vegas Summer League consolation game Friday.
The French big man saw action in just two games in the tournament, averaging 5.0 points and 2.0 rebounds across 11.0 minutes. Poirier stayed busy last season by participating in both the G League (9.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.0 block across 20.1 minutes over 40 games) and the Italian League. At 6-foot-11, he presents as an intriguing prospect, but he seemingly has an uphill battle to earn a reserve frontcourt spot in the coming season, especially with fellow young big Drew Eubanks impressing to the tune of 16.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks over three games in Las Vegas....

Spurs' Thomas Robinson: Double-doubles in LSVL finale
Robinson generated 10 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and 11 rebounds across 17 minutes during the Spurs' 80-72 loss to the Hawks in a Las Vegas Summer League consolation game Friday.
Robinson capped off his stint in the desert with a solid showing, and his rebounding total paced the Spurs for the night. The veteran big man acquitted himself well during his relatively limited allotment of playing time in Las Vegas, averaging 8.3 points and 6.8 rebounds across 14.0 minutes over four games, a body of work preceded by 11.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.0 minutes per three Salt Lake City League tilts. The 28-year-old will hope to parlay the solid body of work overall into a training camp invite at minimum.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Trey Lyles: Lands with San Antonio
Lyles agreed Thursday with the Spurs on a two-year contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After Marcus Morris reneged on his commitment with San Antonio and elected to join the Knicks, the Spurs turned their attention to Lyles as a replacement at forward. The 23-year-old offers a more youthful option than Morris and could have a better path to minutes in San Antonio than what existed on a deep Nuggets roster in 2018-19. Lyles appeared in 64 games for Denver last season, averaging 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.8 triples in 17.5 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Luka Samanic: Double-doubles in close loss
Samanic provided 11 points (3-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and three steals across 22 minutes during the Spurs' 79-78 loss to the Suns in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.
Samanic continued to scuffle with his shot Wednesday, but he still found his way to an impressive line thanks to his free-throw shooting and work on the boards. The 2019 first-round pick has made a consistent impact in Las Vegas, as he's now averaging 10.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals over three games. Samanic had opened summer with similarly impressive numbers over two games in the Salt Lake City league, supplying 10.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks across 23.0 minutes....

Spurs' Drew Eubanks: Near double-double in loss
Eubanks (rest) posted 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 24 minutes during the Spurs' 79-78 loss to the Suns in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.
Eubanks drew the start at center and put together another strong showing, checking in second behind Quinndary Weatherspoon in scoring on the Spurs for the night. The big man saw action in 23 regular-season games during his rookie 2018 campaign, averaging a modest 4.9 minutes over those contests. He was naturally much more productive in G League action, averaging 16.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.5 blocks across 25 minutes in 32 games.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Quinndary Weatherspoon: Mixed bag in narrow loss
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....

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Out Wednesday
Walker (rest) won't play in Wednesday's Summer League game against Phoenix, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Walker, who scored 32 points Monday against Toronto, will be held out Wednesday. The second-year guard, who's impressed thus far, will likely return for the Summer League playoffs which begin Friday.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Chimezie Metu: Won't appear in Summer League
Metu (foot) won't appear in any Summer League games, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Despite showing up on the Spurs' bench Wednesday, Metu was merely in Las Vegas to work out and support his teammates. He won't appear in any Summer league games as he's still rehabbing from a foot injury. Metu played 29 games last year, scoring 1.8 points and grabbing 1.2 rebounds in 5.0 minutes per contest....

Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV: Back in action Monday
Walker (rest) poured in 32 points (12-23 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and registered six rebounds along with two assists, two steals and two blocks over 30 minutes in Monday's summer league game against Toronto.
Walker was held out of Sunday's matchup for rest purposes, but he proved that he was ready to roll Monday evening. He led his squad in the scoring department and also contributed on the defensive end of the court in a three-point victory for the Spurs.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Thomas Robinson: Totals 14 points in win
Robinson (knee) finished with 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and a block over 15 minutes in Monday's summer league game against the Raptors.
Robinson failed to play in Sunday's matchup due to a right knee injury, but he looked to be at full strength during Monday's clash. He shot the ball with efficiency on the day and proved valuable on the glass, paving the way to a 93-90 victory.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Marcus Morris: Reconsidering deal with Spurs
Morris, who agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal with the Spurs, is now considering signing with the Knicks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
With the Knicks likely re-working their two-year, $21 million agreement with Reggie Bullock, they may have some extra cap space open to sign Morris. Should Morris end up in New York, he would be the fourth forward they sign in free agency this season, which could result in him being used more on the wing given the Knicks lack of quality depth at the small forward position. Expect Morris' destination to be worked out in the next couple of days.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Quinndary Weatherspoon: Inks two-way deal
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.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Luka Samanic: Scores 16 points in Sunday's win
Samanic supplied 16 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 24 minutes during Sunday's 106-96 win over the Hornets.
Samanic was assertive offensively, showcasing his wide range of skills, albeit while accumulating twice as many turnovers as dimes. Given the presence of LaMarcus Aldridge and Jakob Poeltl, Samanic has his work cut out for him in terms of earning significant minutes as a rookie. Even so, it remains a possibility he'll be part of the regular rotation as the third big man (behind the aforementioned two) almost immediately.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Keldon Johnson: Scores 19 points in Sunday's win
Johnson posted 19 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one block in 27 minutes during Sunday's 106-96 win over the Hornets.
Johnson continued his strong summer league with an efficient scoring performance in this one. His ability and desire to play hard and attack the rim is a good sign for him going forward. Nevertheless, on a deep team with playoff aspirations Johnson is fairly likely to spend a significant portion of his rookie year honing his craft in the G League.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Thomas Robinson: Nursing knee injury
Robinson will be held out of the Spurs' Las Vegas Summer League matchup Sunday versus the Hornets due to a right knee injury, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
The severity of Robinson's injury isn't clear, but the 28-year-old wasn't likely to receive a long look in summer league anyway, given his status as an elder statesman and non-roster player on the Spurs' entry in Las Vegas. Robinson, a 2012 lottery pick of the Kings, last saw regular-season NBA action in 2016-17 as a member of the Lakers.... See More ... See Less
