Spurs sign Owens to second 10-day contract


It appears Larry Owens’ time in San Antonio will be extended at least another ten days, according to an official announcement from the Spurs.

The San Antonio Spurs today announced they have signed forward Larry Owens to a second 10-day contract. Owens signed his first 10-day contract with the Spurs on January 16 becoming the second call-up of the 2010-11 NBA Development League season.

Owens, a 6-7, 210-pound forward, has appeared in five games for the Spurs, averaging 1.8 points in 5.2 minutes per game. He is shooting .600 (3-5) from the field and .333 (1-3) from three-point territory.

With James Anderson getting back into playing shape with the Toros in Austin, the Spurs had the space to keep Owens around and he’ll have another ten days to prove to the Spurs that he belongs in San Antonio.
