OSU’s Thomas: No Cell Number for Spurs
If any NBA team is going to take former Ohio State star Deshaun Thomas — projected by many outlets to be a second-round pick — in the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft, it could very well be the San Antonio Spurs.
The hope of that happening, however, wasn’t enough to convince Thomas to give the Spurs’ brass his cell phone number.
“I can’t go around giving it out to everyone,” Thomas explained to reporters at the NBA draft combine last week. “Now if they want to draft me, I’d be happy to give it to them.”
Note to Thomas: The San Antonio Spurs aren’t everyone. And we’re fairly certain that by asking Thomas for both his e-mail (which he gave to them) and his cell phone number during their interview with him last Wednesday, the Spurs were in fact announcing their interest in drafting Thomas.
But what do we know?
