Spurs recalled Malcolm Thomas from D-League

According to a report from Pro Basketball Talk via Express-News, the San Antonio Spurs have recalled Malcolm Thomas from the NBA’s Developmental League to add inside depth.

Malcolm Thomas has the potential to help the Spurs inside the shaded area on both ends of the floor.

After signing Ike Diogu earlier this season to bolster their frontcourt rotation, the Spurs nabbed the 6-foot-9, 225-pound Thomas from the Los Angeles Defenders who averaged 14.3 points and 8.3 rebounds while shooting 67.3 percent from the field in the D-League.

Thomas, 23, was a former teammate of Kawhi Leonard’s at San Diego State he started his college career at Pepperdine and played with the Waves for one season. He declared early for the 2009 NBA Draft, but withdrew his name after one workout.

He transferred to San Diego State, where along with Leonard he helped the Aztecs become a breakthrough team under Coach Steve Fisher.

Last year, he was named to the All-Mountain West Conference defensive team and finished second in the conference in rebounding and blocked shots. He finished his two-year career with the Aztecs as the school’s second leading career shot blocker and ranked eighth in rebound average and field goal percentage.

His addition will add more depth to the Spurs’ biggest weakness inside. Scouts like his determination, hustle and willingness to do the dirty work inside.

The Spurs have found quite a bit of value coming out of the D-League. Among the Spurs’ D-League call ups in the past include Jason Hart, Matt Carrol, Devin Brown, DerMarr Johnson, Cedric Jackson, Larry Owens, Malik Hairston, and Alonzo Gee.
