Haven't seen this kid at all. Though I did hear about him a little bit in the off-season. What kind of guard is he?

According to DraftExpress D-League scout Jim Hlavac, the San Antonio Spurs are calling up guard Blake Ahearn from the Dakota Wizards of the NBA Development League, making Ahearn the first D-League Call-Up of the 2008- 2009 season.

Ahearn worked out for the Spurs in mid August.

Phoenix, Golden State and Minnesota had previously shown interest in him as well.

Ahearn was in training camp with the Dakota Wizards as the D-League season doesn't begin for another two weeks.

Check out this story on him. There's also a video there.
