Spurs worked out A.J. Slaughter


It’s another pre-NBA draft workout with another guard for the San Antonio Spurs.

According to bgdailynews.com, the Spurs worked out Western Kentucky’s A.J. Slaughter.

Working out exclusively as a point guard – rather than the shooting guard position he played at WKU – Slaughter is in the midst of a two-week road trip that had him work out for the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs last week, the Portland Trailblazers today, the Golden State Warriors on Friday and eventually the Boston Celtics this coming Tuesday.

“It’s been a busy schedule,” he said. “But a lot of teams are interested, which is good.

Slaughter is a 6’1″ guard, averaged 17.5 points, shot 41.6% from the field, 35.9% from the three-point line, 82.7% from the free-throw line, and averaged 4.3 assists for Western Kentucky in 2009-2010.
