Spurs call up Jeffers from D-League

The San Antonio Spurs have called up Othyus Jeffers from the Iowa Energy of the D-League according to his teammate Courtney Sims:


Jeffers is a 6-5 guard-forward and has averaged 21.2 points, 9 rebounds, 48% shooting and 3.1 assists with the Energy. In his rookie year with Iowa, he was named to the 2009 D-League All-Star Game, having averaged 19.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

He played with the Utah Jazz on two 10-day contracts last season and played well enough to finish out the season with the Jazz. The Jazz waived Jeffers six days prior to the start of this season.
