Topic - Othyus Jeffers
The San Antonio Spurs have signed guard Othyus Jeffers to a 10-day contract.
Like every other player, Washington Wizards forward Othyus Jeffers has been finding ways to stay busy during the NBA lockout. He is rehabbing from an ACL injury suffered July 17 during a workout, while navigating those dreaded orange cones.
There's a fine line between an NBA player and a Developmental League player, as Wizards coach Flip Saunders is quick to point out.
It was clear from the opening tip that the lottery-bound Wizards had something to play for -- pride -- while the playoff-bound Hawks did not. The Wizards dominated Saturday night’s contest at Verizon Center from start to finish on their way to a 115-83 win.
"We executed the game plan. Coach [Saunders] got into us a little bit from the Boston game, and made sure we came to play from the first five minutes," Jeffers said.
"I've been in this position a couple of times and it didn't play out my way, but this is a different team so hopefully it will work out," Jeffers said.
