Determining Josh Primo’s role with the Spurs in Year 1

The pick no one expected: Joshua Primo is now a San Antonio Spur. There is so much to unpack here with this pick and this prospect.

Points in the Paint: Josh Primo is gone — and it’s the smart move

Following the NBA Combine, a lot of players — notably at the guard spots — saw their stock plummet. For instance, the dynamic playmaking Sharife Cooper measured at 6’ feet on the nose. There is some speculation that he may even drop out of the First Round entirely because of his swing-for-the-fence style of reckless play and tiny frame.
