Lamb signed a two-way contract with the Houston Rockets a season ago, where he averaged 5.5 points and 2.9 rebounds per game across 24 NBA appearances as a rookie.
Though the undrafted 23-year-old spent most of his first go-round suiting up for the Canton Charge and Rio Grande Valley Vipers, he would go on to win the G League Most Improved Player Award.
The former University of Vermont Catamount hasn’t had much success in the league. But he has nailed an extraordinary 41.5% of his 7.2 three-point attempts per game for the Valley Vipers this season.
The Spurs reportedly signed Tyler Johnson to a ten-day contract earlier today and called up Jaylen Morris from their Austin affiliate nearly a week ago. All three replacements could see minutes against Philly on Friday.
