Marcus Denmon, how we hardly knew ye.
The Spurs’ second-round pick out of Missouri will play the upcoming season in France for ES Chalon-Sur-Saone, according to a report at Sports.fr that was dug up by earlier in the day.
The move doesn’t appear to be much more than a blip on the radar after Denmon, already a long shot to make the Spurs after lasting until the next-to-last pick of the recent draft, averaged just 5.4 points on 37-percent shooting in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Granted, it was only five games — but obviously not what the Spurs were looking for from an undersized guard billed as a shooter/scorer.
No word on how closely the Spurs will follow his progress. But, barring a Gary Neal-type ascent, it’s a pretty safe bet we won’t see him in black and silver any time soon — if ever.
