The Spurs have swapped point guard Nando De Colo for Toronto small forward Austin Daye, a modest deal that typified an uneventful trade deadline throughout the NBA on Thursday. The deal, which was first reported by Yahoo! Sports, is pending approval from the league office. Buried behind a backlog of point guards that included Tony Parker, Cory Joseph and Patty Mills, De Colo was never able to establish himself since joining the Spurs before the 2012-13 season. He averaged 4.0 points and 1.7 assists in 98 games with the Spurs. The 6-11, 200-pound Daye has had similar struggles after entering the NBA as the 15th pick of the 2009 draft. The Spurs are his fourth team after averaging 5.4 points in 245 appearances with Detroit, Memphis and the Raptors. He is averaging 1.0 point on 23-percent shooting in eight games this season.
