The San Antonio Spurs seemingly found another diamond in the rough with their rookie in Devin Vassell. In a postgame interview, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich wasn’t stingy with his strong praises for the Florida State product after his impressive outing against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night, per Tom Orsborn.

Entering the game as the underdogs against the Suns, the Spurs still gave their best effort even without having star swingman DeMar DeRozan in the active lineup. Vassell made the most out of the opportunities given to him as he notched a career-high 18 points on 4-of-6 shots from beyond the arc to go with three rebounds and two assists through 24 minutes of action.
