The San Antonio Spurs have extended Devin Vassell’s contract for a number of years, the team announced Monday. The contract’s specifics were kept secret in accordance with team policy.

Vassell enters his fourth season with the Spurs after averaging 18.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in the third year of his career. He scored in double figures in 36 of 38 games, including 18 games with more than 20 points. That same year, the 23-year-old scored a career-best 29 points three times and dished out a career-best 8 assists twice.

In 171 career games, Vassell averaged 11.2 points and 3.7 rebounds in 24.4 minutes and hit 292 three-pointers, which is the third most in franchise history for a Spur in his first three years. As a sophomore, he joined Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili as one of three players in Spurs history to score 1,000 points, 125 threes, and 100 steals in their first two seasons.

Originally from Suwanee, Georgia, Vassell was selected by San Antonio in the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft (11th overall) after playing two seasons at Florida State University, where he was selected to the All-ACC Second Team his sophomore year and led the Seminoles to the first regular-season ACC Championship in school history.
