Hopefully he plays. I'd love to get a better look at him. Thanks for the link!

No problem! Here is full article, nothing interesting for Spurs fans, but that tweet is from this story:
http://www.eurohoops.net/en/euroleague/477165/reds-waiting-milutinov-released-green/

Dont think he will play in SL, Spurs announced roster for Las Vegas today and there is no Milutinov. He was on vacation until today bassically, probably thats the reason, i dont know. Anyway, Spurs have 8 more days to decide if they will sign Miluitnov, after that he will remain with Olympiacos for next season.

According to David Pick, previous information from Eurohoops about Milutinov in Las Vegas was false:

Dejounte Murray has been disappointing in the SL so far... Turning it over way too much, bad passes, poor decisions, missing almost every shot, etc. Just not playing well at all offensively. And his jump shot drives me nuts. He's never gonna be a very good shooter. Not giving up on him after a few but games obviously, but it's a little disappointing.

Austin's training camp roster. A few interesting bigs and combo guards on the roster.

As the G-League regular season encroaches (November 3), I'd like to open the thread up by asking everyone here:

Have you ever been to an Austin Spurs/Toros game? Have you ever been to a G-League/D-League game? What was your experience?

As for me, I went to a game in Austin in 2011 when they were still the Toros; I had a buddy who was working for the team at the time and he hooked us up with some courtside seats. They were playing the Idaho Stampede and Antoine Walker was on their roster at the time, so we were excited to see if he still had anything.

Walker's performance was mostly forgettable; the standout performance of the night came from rookie Luke Babbitt (currently with the Hawks), who'd been sent to Idaho from the Blazers and who was head-and-shoulders above everyone else, including Walker. My big takeaway from that game was the marvel that a by-NBA-standards marginal talent like Babbitt could stand out so conspicuously in a minor-league game; it was a reminder of how talented NBA players are compared to everyone else.

The game was a fun 'mini-NBA' experience and I recommend it to anyone who can catch a G-League game; if you do it in Austin, be sure to mow down on some pizza from Home Slice afterward.

Disappointed that Bertans isn't get more minutes right now but a few games in the G-League won't hurt him.

As for White this will be a good chance for us to see more of his game against some decent talent.

Haven't been yet. But it's in my future plans. I've wanted to check out Austin for a while and I think when the time comes i'll try to plan around the Spurs schedule so I can catch a game.

Ok I know I mentioned it before but for anyone new to the thread or who might be interested, you can watch all the Austin games live on The G-League site including tonight's game against the Rockets affiliate, Rio Grande Valley.

Hillard, Costello and Blossomgame have all looked pretty solid so far. Really liking Blossomgame's energy and Costello's versatility.
