The Spurs have assigned Tre Jones to the Austin Spurs as their G-League affiliate prepares to travel to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando for the tip-off of their regular season.

The rookie hasn’t received many minutes in a crowded Silver and Black backcourt, though he shared a special moment with his brother and fellow Duke University alumnus Tyus Jones in a recent loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Jones now joins second-year forward Luka Samanic, two-way contract signees Quinndary Weatherspoon and Keita Bates-Diop, and a handful of former NBA players and college hoops standouts on a talented G-League roster.
The Austin Spurs arrived in Orlando for the beginning of training camp earlier today, and they will kick off their twelve-game schedule against the Memphis Hustle on February 10 at 10:30 AM CST.
