The Spurs took 19-year old combo guard Cory Joseph with the 29th overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft last night. He is 6′3″, 185 pounds so he could likely handle either the point or shooting guard spot. Joseph played in 36 games for the Texas Longhorns last year (his only year in college) and he averaged 32.4 minutes, 10.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Joseph did hit 52 of 126 (41.3%) shots from three point range last year. The Spurs will have plenty of minutes behind Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Gary Neal in 2011-12, so Joseph will likely be thrown right into the fire as a bench player in 2011-12.
