SAN ANTONIO -- Spurs general manager R.C. Buford said after Thursday's NBA draft that they have already spoken to Livio Jean-Charles, a 6-foot-9, 19-year-old forward from France.
Then Buford made a funny about their other pick, Ohio State's Deshaun Thomas.
"Since Deshaun wouldn't give us his cell number, we weren't able to call him," Buford said, drawing laughter from the crowd at a press conference on Thursday night.
Thomas, a 6-foot-7 forward, made news several months earlier for refusing to give the Spurs organization his cell phone number during a workout with the team.
