Source: James Nunnally to Work Out For Spurs, Other NBA Teams

Ethan Miller

With NBA training camp around the corner, RidiculousUpside.com has learned that talented D-League swingman James Nunnally is set to work out for the Spurs, Jazz, and potentially up to three other NBA teams in the near future.

As NBA training camp grows nearer, the time is running out for even some of the more notable D-League alumni to snag camp invites, let alone any partially guaranteed deals. Such difficulty is driving many of those same players overseas.

Not James Nunnally, though. At least not yet, anyway. The swingman spent this past season with the Bakersfield Jam, averaging 10.3 points (on 43% from the field and 41% from deep) and 3 rebounds through 49 contests. Working his way up from starting out as a lesser-known rookie, Nunnally emerged as sixth man of the Jam by the time the postseason rolled around.

As he heads into the sophomore campaign of his professional career, Nunnally has his sights set on catching on with an NBA team. A source has confirmed to RidiculousUpside.com that the UC Santa Barbara alum will work out for the Spurs on Tuesday.

Such a pairing would be quite fitting, as RidiculousUpside.com continued to compare Nunnally to San Antonio's own (and fellow NBADL alum) Danny Green this past year. Nunnally is similarly deadly from downtown, serving as a threat from long range and able to help his team spread the floor offensively. What's more, however, he even prides himself on being a defensive stopper as well. In the past, Nunnally has previously compared himself to that of Bruce Bowen, another player the Spurs have clearly favored previously.

But Nunnally's work won't just be done after Monday, RidiculousUpside.com has learned. The 2012-13 All-NBADL Rookie Third Team member will also be working out for the Utah Jazz sooner than later, and up to three more NBA teams could also be next.

The swingman's skills, hard work ethic, and positive attitude throughout last season suggest that he's exactly the type of player the D-League likes to develop. That said, given his continued progress, perhaps it's time he graduates to the NBA, much like Green and many others have before him.

This offseason, Nunnally continued to log the long hours, working out with the likes of the Pacers' Orlando Johnson, NBA guard Julyan Stone, and his brother, international stud Mike Nunnally.
