The Spurs gave Paul his first workout after he went undrafted. When that didn’t lead to a signing, he bounced from Russia’s Nizhny Novgorod to the Canton (Ohio) Charge of the G-League to Spain’s FIATC Joventut and Turkey’s Anadolu Efes. Through it all Paul never lost confidence or faith he’d one day reach the NBA. “I just think my love for the game and not wanting to settle helped me,” he said. “I enjoyed my time overseas and really could’ve made a career over there, but I wanted to continue to get better. And I knew the NBA wasn’t going away, so as long as I focused on myself I knew at some point I’d get an opportunity to play at the highest level. “A lot of kids have dreams to play at this level. It’s a very tough gig to get, but I always stayed the course and had confidence in myself. I played my game. And now that I’m here, my goal is to stay.”
At what point, did you know the Spurs were really interested in signing you for the season? Brandon Paul: When I came back from Turkey, I basically landed in San Antonio to do a mini-camp and I played well over there. I had a conversation with RC [Buford] and he was telling me, “Stay locked in, work on your game. We don’t know what is going to happen in the next weeks, but we’re definitely interested and we’ll be in touch.” I could tell that he was genuinely interested, that he was being serious.
