SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs own three first-round picks (No. 9, 20, 25) in the upcoming NBA Draft 2022.
And a name that could possibly be on the draft board when San Antonio is on the clock is G League Ignite's, Dyson Daniels.
The 6'7", 195 pound guard/forward is seen as a solid pick for any NBA team, and some mock drafts predict he could be selected by the Spurs with No. 9.
Mock drafts describe him as a player with good NBA size, length, and a solid rebounder at his position. He has a solid floater in the paint and is seen as a player with incredible upside.
However, mocks point out that he is a project, an average ball handler, and often doesn't use his athleticism to his advantage.
In this Q&A with Daniels, he chats with us about working out with the Spurs, possibly playing in San Antonio, and much more.
Jeff: You worked out with the Spurs ahead of the NBA Draft. How was that?
Dyson: It went well. I enjoyed my time in San Antonio. I had a good workout there. A good facility, good people, and I enjoyed it for sure.
Jeff: How do you think you'd fit in San Antonio should they select you?
Dyson: I am a versatile player. I can fit in a lot of different systems. San Antonio, as compared to other teams, has a more Australian-style of play in the way they move the ball.
I definitely fit in a team like that!
Jeff: Did the Spurs give you feedback?
Dyson: Just to be myself. To play my game.
Every time I step on the floor, they [Spurs] know what I am going to bring on the defensive end. To continue to work on my shot and things like that.
The Spurs were definitely a good workout for me!
The NBA Draft 2022 is on June 23. San Antonio owns the 9th, 20th, and 25th pick in the first round.
