Auburn freshman and projected early-lottery pick Isaac Okoro had a pre-draft interview with the Spurs, according to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News.

Although NBA teams are limited to ten in-person workouts during the 2020 pre-draft cycle, there is no news as to whether or not San Antonio plans to work out Okoro.
ESPN recruiting services ranked Okoro 40th in the class of 2019, but the sturdy six-six wing vaulted up big boards following an exceptional season for a nationally ranked Auburn program.
Isaac Okoro has the motor, frame, and physical tools to stand out among NBA athletes, and his tremendous potential and solid foundation on both sides of the ball make him an attractive prospect for the Silver and Black.
The 19-year-old is unlikely to be on the board when the Spurs make the 11th pick, though an Okoro Spurs connection isn’t out of the realm of possibility with rumors of PATFO looking to trade up in the draft.
