Despite his team being on the receiving end of a 92-76 defeat at the hands of the Utah Jazz, former Oregon State stand-out Drew Eubanks got his NBA “feet wet” on Monday night in the first day of the NBA Summer League in Utah.
In the contest, Eubanks saw over 14 minutes of court time for the San Antonio Spurs, in which he tallied 5 points (2-3 FG), 4 rebounds, 3 blocks and 1 assist. Oddly enough, the Spurs were led by two Pac-12 alums in former Colorado play-maker Derrick White (22 points, 6 assists) and one-time USC star Chimezie Metu (10 points, 7 rebounds). Eubanks tied with former UCONN center Amida Brimah for the team high in blocks on the night.
For Utah, the Jazz were paced by Georges Niang, who finished the game with 17 points and 4 rebounds.
For anyone who missed the “Pride of Troutdale’s” debut, Eubanks’ next game with San Antonio will come tomorrow at 5:00 PM PT against the Atlanta Hawks. That game will be televised nationally on NBA TV. The Spurs will then play again Thursday against the Memphis Grizzlies to close out the NBA Utah Summer League.
From there, San Antonio will begin their slate in the more popular NBA Las Vegas Summer League, which begins on Saturday, July 7th.
