Spurs worked out hometown player


With the San Antonio Spurs working out many players from across the nation before the 2010 NBA Draft, the team recently worked out someone from San Antonio — Ben Uzoh.

Uzoh’s hometown is San Antonio. He played high-school basketball for Warren and in college for Tulsa.

Uzoh is working out for his hometown San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.

I think I’ve been solid,” Uzoh said. “I’ve done a good job overall and every place that I’ve (gone), I definitely feel like I’ve done a lot of things that they’ve liked.”

Uzoh is a 6’3″ point-guard, who averaged 14 points, shot 43.8% from the field, 32.8% from the three-point line, and 3.6 assists for Tulsa in 2009-2010.  Not to mention he has a 6-9 wingspan.
