The Spurs have invited 26-year old center Marcus Cousin to training camp.  Cousin’s only NBA experience came back in 2010-11 with the Utah Jazz.  He played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Jazz last year and he averaged 4.5 minutes, 1.0 point and 0.8 rebounds per game for the Jazz in 2010-11.  He is going to be a big time longshot to win a roster spot for the Spurs in 2013-14.

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General, The Draft Report by joelapinski on Friday 28 June 2013 at 1:45 pm
