2. (57) James Gist, SF

Blogged under Big Spurs News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Saturday 28 June 2008 at 11:24 am

The Spurs selected forward James Gist out of Maryland because he’s a hustle player. He is 6’9″, 235 pounds and he gives it his all at both ends of the basketball court. Gist played in 130 games (89 starts) at Maryland and he averaged 10.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.8 blocked shots per game. He could work his way into the playing rotation at some point next season because of his defense.

2. (48) Malik Hairston, F

The Spurs acquired Malik Hairston, a 2009 2nd round pick and cash from the Suns for the rights to G Gordan Dragic of Slovenia. Hairston is a polished 6’6″, 220 pound forward who can do a little bit of everything. The Spurs will likely give him a chance to battle fellow rookie James Gist for playing time behind Bruce Bowen. Hairston played in 117 games (115 starts) in his career at Oregon and he averaged 14.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He also shot 59% from the floor which shows that he’s a decent shooter and that he only takes good shots. This was a nice move for the Spurs.

1. (26) George Hill, SG

The San Antonio Spurs wanted a polished player in the NBA Draft and they think they got one in George Hill out of IUPUI. While Hill didn’t play against the best competition in the NCAA he was still a very consistent and producitve player. Hill is 6’2″, 180 pounds but he’s tough enough to get the job done despite being skinny. Hill played in 95 games (87 starts) at IUPUI and he averaged 17.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.6 steals per game. Hill also is a very unselfish player with the basketball which is evidenced by his 52.9% career FG% in college. This was a good move to help inject some youth in the playing rotation for the Spurs.
