The good news for the San Antonio Spurs continues to roll in as the Becky Hammond led Spurs Summer League team has advanced to the finals, scheduled for tonight, against the Phoenix Suns only on NBA TV. Kyle Anderson, the Spurs 30th pick in the first round of the 2014 draft, led the Spurs team with 22 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.5 apg and 1.3 steals per game. He becomes the first Spurs Summer League MVP.
The team made news from the start as Team President Gregg Popovich named former WNBA All Star and current Spurs Assistant Becky Hammon as the Spurs SL Head Coach, the first in NBA History.
“She has such a great opportunity in front of her,” said Hall of Fame player Nancy Lieberman. “And it’s fantastic. They couldn’t have chosen anyone better than Becky. We’ve been friends for years and I’m so proud of her.”
