The Spurs selected 21-year old small forward DeShaun Thomas out of Ohio State with the #58 overall pick (2nd round) of the 2013 NBA Draft. He is 6’7″, 225 pounds. Thomas played in 37 games for Ohio State last year and he averaged 35.4 minutes, 19.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. Thomas played in 113 games in his three years with the Buckeyes and he averaged 27.0 minutes, 14.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. Thomas shot 47.8% from the floor, 34.2% from three point range and 80.2% from the free throw line in college. This was an excellent pick for the Spurs, as a lot of draft experts thought he would have been picked at the bottom of the first round.
UPDATE: (8/16/2013) – DeShaun Thomas will spend the 2013-14 season playing in France.
