Spurs waive Diogu, sign Thomas from DL
San Antonio Spurs waived forward/center Ike Diogu and signed forward Malcolm Thomas from the NBA’s D-League on Wednesday.
The ninth overall pick of the 2005 draft, Diogu played sparingly in two games this season. In 2010-11, Diogu averaged 5.8 points and 3.2 rebounds in 36 games with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Thomas is a 6-foot-9 rookie out of San Diego State and will be reunited with swingman Kawri Leonard. The two played together in college.
