Spurs sign Da’Sean Butler
Alex Kennedy initially reported and the team just announced that the San Antonio Spurs have signed former West Virginia University star Da’Sean Butler.
This is a smart move simply because it has no downside. Butler was a brilliant player in college whose draft stock plummeted after he suffered the injury shown above, which I found to be one of the more tragic and moving scenes I’ve ever witnessed on a basketball court. If Butler, who is still rehabbing his torn ACL, can eventually recapture any semblance of that brilliance, this will have been a worthwhile signing. In all likelihood, he won’t have a huge impact but there’s practically no risk involved. Any way you look at it, it’s a good signing.
