Video: Former Spur JaMychal Green is emerging in the NBA


Spurs' Jonathon Simmons isn't the only former Austin Spurs player who is finding success in the NBA.

Former San Antonio Spurs (and Austin Spurs) forward, JaMychal Green, is showing the league he belongs and is tearing up the court for the Memphis Grizzlies. He is currently averaging 6.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, shooting 51 percent from the field and 41 percent from the three-point line in 60 games for Memphis and showing high-energy on the court.

Check out what Green is doing in the NBA.

Green, who was not drafted, played for San Antonio in 2014 playing for the team's Summer League. He was then signed by the Spurs but was released later in the season. He went on to play for the D-League's Austin Spurs before eventually getting the call-up by Memphis and signing a multi-year deal.

From Simmons to Green, it is nice to see the D-League is producing solid NBA players and great success stories.
