I just heard that Kirk Penney has been invited to Spurs training camp do you think he will make it? I t would be nice to see another New Zealander in the NBA and hopefully he will see more time than Marks if he makes it.
Never heard of him Festar can you tell us about him
If hes fighting Sean Marks for a spot do you honestly think theres any chance he wont make it?
He's kind of a fan favorite type guy, but I don't think he makes the roster, they drafted James Anderson, and already have Alonzo Gee and Garrett Temple on their roster. Those guys aren't great so he has a chance, but they already have 3 guys who can back up the 2 on their roster, 4 if you count George Hill.
Penny played in the World Games..I knew someone would invite him to camp...He's a gritty player..Pop loves those guys..
What are you talking about Sean Marks is in the Wizards training camp, as for Penney I think his chances are good at making the team. Coud possibly fil that Roger Mason role but doubt he gets those minutes even if he makes the team. Penney is a sick, sick stone cold shooter. Proved at Wisconsin and in the D-league last year that he can play American style ball. Problem for him will always be his lack of athleticism and being a defensive liability guarding quicker wings.
I remember this guy when he played at Wisconsin and I believe it was for coach Bo Ryan. He is fundamentally solid and is a very good spot up shooter. He could get his own shot in college (no easily, but he could), but not sure about the pro level. I do not recall that he was overly athletic or attempted to get to the rim much. However, a few years in Europe may have increased his mid range and driving game. Not sure Europe can do much about the athleticism though.
I think fair comparables are Matt Carroll or a shorter version of Jason Kapono.

J.r. Inman from Rutgers University worked out for the Spurs. I was working out with him, and he said he got back from training with the Spurs.
