Spurs Stories: Doug McDermott

The Spurs vet talks about how he ended up in San Antonio

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at San Antonio Spurs Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports

Doug McDermott was on the chopping block. He was rumored (along with Josh Richardson and Jakob Poeltl) to be available for trades.

Hard to believe a contender doesn’t want a reliable vet with a spark off the bench, sharp three-point shooting, and quick moves without the ball, but then maybe the Spurs were asking too much in exchange.

Whatever the reason, it looks like he’ll be with the Silver & Black for the remainder of the season.

Earlier, the Spurs spotlit the Indiana native as part of the “Spurs Stories” series.

McDermott talks about his roadmap to the NBA and how his style and adjustments caused so many moves.
