Default So this is how the draft went...

With the 26th pick in the 2008 NBA Draft the Spurs selected George Hill from IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis).


Quote:
Hill, a 6-2 guard, spent the past four years at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). Last season he was named the Summit League Player of the Year, earned First Team All-Conference honors and was named an Honorable Mention All-American by the Associated Press. Hill led the Summit League and ranked 16th nationally in scoring with 21.5 points per game while shooting .545 from the field (195-245) and .450 (49-109) from three-point range. He averaged 6.8 rebounds posting nine double-doubles, 4.3 assists and 1.78 steals in 32 games. Hill scored in double figures in all 32 games, finishing with 20 or more points 16 times, and topped the 30-point mark in seven contests. He appeared in just five games as a junior before missing the rest of the season with a broken foot. As a sophomore Hill earned First Team All-Conference honors, averaging a team-high 18.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 3.6 assists. He was named to the league All-Newcomer Team as a freshman. For his career Hill appeared in 95 games for the Jaguars, averaging 17.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.63 steals.

With the 45th pick in the 2008 NBA Draft the Spurs selected Goran Dragic from Slovenia. Later in the draft however, his draft rights were traded to Phoenix for the draft rights to Malik Hairston from the University of Oregon. He was Phoenix's 48th pick in the draft.


Quote:
Hairston, a 6-6 forward, spent four seasons at the University of Oregon. He earned Honorable Mention All-Pac-10 honors his sophomore and senior seasons. In his final season with Ducks he averaged a team-high 16.3 points and 4.8 rebounds while handing out 2.1 assists per game. He also ranked fifth in the Pac-10 in three-point shooting connecting on 43.3 percent (52-120) of his shots from behind the arc and scored 20 or more points 11 times. As a sophomore Hairston led the Ducks in scoring, averaging 15.0 points and ranked second on the team in rebounding (4.7 rpg). He was named to the Pac-10 All-Freshman Team after starting in all 27 games, averaging 13.1 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists. During his four years at Oregon, he averaged 14.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists while shooting .504 (612-1,214) from the field and .395 (145-367) from long range.

With their last pick (the 57th pick) the Spurs selected James Gist from the University of Maryland.


Quote:
The Spurs used the 57th overall pick to select Gist out of the University of Maryland. Last season the 6-9 forward was named to the All-ACC Second Team and ACC All-Defensive Team after finishing eighth in ACC in scoring (15.9 ppg), fourth in rebounding (7.9 rpg), third in field goal percentage (.496, 194-391) and second in blocks (2.33 bpg). As a junior Gist earned All-ACC Honorable Mention after averaging 12.6 points and 7.2 rebounds. For his career the four-year letterman appeared in 130 games with the Terps, averaging 10.9 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.77 blocks.


I think the draft went very well for us. There's a possibility that 2 or maybe all 3 of these guys make our roster next year. But a very good draft IMO.

He wouldn't have come over for a few years. Plus, Pop says that Hill can come straight to the team and make an immediate impact.
