The Spurs have announced they have recalled guard Malik Hairston from the Austin Toros to replace the injured Tony Parker on the active roster. He joined the team tonight in Detroit for their game against the Pistons on the Rodeo Road Trip.
The San Antonio Spurs announced today that they have recalled guard Malik Hairston from the Austin Toros, the NBA Development League team owned and operated by the Spurs.
Hairston, who was assigned to Austin on 1/14, has appeared in 15 games for the Toros and averaged 29.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 40.8 minutes.
Hairston has appeared in 21 games for the Spurs this season and averaged 0.5 points in 3.5 minutes.
Hopefully Hairston can get some playing time for the Spurs this stretch run for the Spurs. However playing behind guards such as Manu Ginobili and Roger Mason, it would be difficult for him to get some heavy minutes on the court. He has proven he can play in the NBA and brings youth, explosiveness and aggressiveness for the Spurs.
