The San Antonio Spurs may have a secret weapon stashed away in the G-League that isn’t named Lonnie Walker IV or Chimezie Metu.
Drew Eubanks, the 6’10” forward out of Oregon State, can play and is proving it in the G League.
Prior to being recalled by San Antonio for the 2019 Rodeo Trip, Eubanks was averaging 17 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game through 21 games for the Austin Spurs this season.
Before joining San Antonio, the big man put on a show against the Delaware Blue Coats as he posted 25 points, 12 rebounds and six blocked shots for Austin.
Eubanks could potentially be a nice find for the Spurs.
Should they need his talents and as the league continues to evolve, he is a solid two-way big man. He is mobile, young, and aggressive around the rim in 13 games for the Spurs. Against the Warriors Wednesday night, he scored nine points in 21 minutes.
With his skill-set, he could become a serviceable big man as he continues to develop.
