According to Spurs coach and president of basketball Gregg Popovich it is just a matter of time and weather before swing man Othyus Jeffers joins the team on a 10-day contract. Jeffers, a 6-foot-4 player who has been on three NBA teams, including the Spurs, over the past three season, played 22 games with the D-League Iowa Energy this season and averaged 22.8 points and 11.4 rebounds. The Spurs were trying to arrange for Jeffers to catch up with the team in either Atlanta or Miami but weather that has disrupted air travel in the East has affected his travel, as well. “He will either join us (Friday) in Atlanta or (Saturday) in Miami,” Popovich said. The Spurs coach said it was Jeffers’ ability to defend small forwards that gave him the nod over some other D-League players the team considered.
