Spurs calling up D-Leaguer?

UPDATE: ESPN's Marc Stein reports that San Antonio waived Malcolm Thomas on Thursday to pave the way for the signing of D-League swingman Othyus Jeffers.


Following Wednesday's injury to Kawhi Leonard, Stein tweeted this morning: "Hearing San Antonio, as it copes with an injury crisis, has Iowa's Othyus Jeffers in its sights for 10-day callup from @nbadleague this week."

Jeffers, 28, is a 6-foot-5 swingman who has averaged 22.8 points and 11.4 rebounds in 22 games with the Iowa Energy this season, and he'd give the Spurs another option to use at small forward in Leonard's absence.
