The San Antonio Spurs have reportedly claimed swingman DaQuan Jeffries off the wires after he was waived by the Houston Rockets on May 13. Before his 13-game stint in Houston, he appeared in 21 games for the Sacramento Kings across the last two seasons.

Jeffries (6-5, 2210) averaged 4.9 points, 3.2 rebounds & 1.2 assists in 13 games for the Rockets.
The Spurs roster now stands at 17 players.
Jeffries was not with the Spurs for their regular season finale against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday and is not expected to play for them in the playin tournament/postseason, as he was reportedly signed primarily for developmental purposes and so the Spurs would have his Summer League rights.
In 44 career NBA games, he has averaged 10.1 points on 43.8% shooting, 29.4% from three, along with 3.8 rebounds. 1.6 assists, and 1.1 steals per game. Originally projected as a second round pick, he went undrafted out of the University of Tulsa in 2019 before signing with the Orlando Magic that summer. However, he declined a two-way offer and was waived before the regular season began. A couple of days later, he agreed to a two-way contract with the Kings and split time between them and their G-League affiliate.
Welcome to the Spurs family, DaQuan!
