Will Myck Kabongo End Up in the NBA D-League This Season?

According to a recent report, Myck Kabongo will spend training camp with the San Antonio Spurs. Will he end up in the NBA D-League in the months to follow?


After playing well for the Miami Heat during NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, undrafted point guard Myck Kabongo will spend training camp with the San Antonio Spurs, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Upon leaving Texas and going undrafted, Myck Kabongo goes to camp w/ Spurs and will likely be assigned to D-League in Austin, sources tell Y</p>&mdash; Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) <a href="">September 27, 2013</a></blockquote>

Woj also suggests that Kabongo will be assigned to the Austin Toros (the Spurs' affiliate) of the NBA D-League. Such an assertion doesn't exactly seem to suggest that he'll in fact make the Spurs and then subsequently get assigned, however.

Of course, NBA teams always have the option to hold over a maximum of three waived players from training camp for their minor league affiliate to sign. Will this turn out to be the case with Kabongo?

If it is, the Spurs must hold out hope that not only does another NBA squad offer him a contract following camp, but also that a more lucrative international offer does not lure Kabongo overseas. The guard by no means has to accept the Spurs' D-League contract, should he be waived after camp.

Obviously one way to prevent Kabongo from leaving (if San Antonio turns out to be that intrigued by his abilities) is to sign him past camp and keep him on board with the NBA club. It'll be interesting to see what develops from here on out.
