Former Husker Isaiah Roby claimed on waivers by San Antonio Spurs

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Two days after being placed on waivers by the Oklahoma City Thunder, Isaiah Roby has found a new home with the San Antonio Spurs.

Roby was placed on waivers by the Thunder on Sunday.  The former Husker put up 10.1 points per game and a field goal percentage of 51% in the 2021-22 season.

On Tuesday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Roby had been claimed by the Spurs.

Roby went into the NBA Draft after the 2018-19 season, in which he averaged 11.8 points and 1.9 assists per game with the Huskers.

He was selected 45th by the Dallas Mavericks and signed a four-year, $6.7 million contract.  Shortly after, he was traded to the Thunder for center Justin Patton.

At the time, Roby was the first Husker men’s basketball player to be drafted into the NBA in two decades.

Since then, Bryce McGowens and Dalano Banton were taken in the second round of their respective NBA Drafts.
