Spurs Assign Hairston To Toros


Once again the San Antonio Spurs have assigned Malik Hairston to the Austin Toros.

The San Antonio Spurs announced today that they have assigned guard Malik Hairston to the Austin Toros, the NBA Development League team owned and operated by the Spurs.

Hairston has appeared in 21 games with San Antonio this season where he averaged 0.5 points in 3.5 minutes. He has also played in two games for the Toros where he averaged 25.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in 35.0 minutes.

This move could mean Michael Finley will be back in uniform for the Spurs after being out due to injuries. Also, Hairston has been riding the bench this season for the Spurs and rarely gets any playing time. He will defintely use the playing time in Austin to showcase his talents.
