San Antonio Spurs 2012 NBA Draft pick guard Marcus Denmon, who is playing with French team Chalon-Elan, will undergo surgery to repair his broken right foot according to the team website. According to the report, Denmon and the Spurs both agreed surgery was necessary to avoid further fracturing of his fifth metatarsal in his right foot. A metal rod will be placed in his foot to strengthen it and to avoid further injury.
San Antonio Spurs 2012 NBA Draft pick Marcus Denmon is currently playing with French squad Chalon-Elan and is playing quite well. In a few friendly matches, Denmon is averaging 16.7 points leading the team in scoring. But he is still a work in progress and the Spurs are closely watching his development on the court according to Chalon coach Beugnot Gregor via French site Le Journal . The Spurs also called last week. They are very sensitive to what is done with him. He is a real project for them. Marcus has already progressed in aggression, especially on pick and rolls. As a leader, it’s starting to come. He begins to see the game, to focus on the weaknesses of the opponent. Over time, it will become natural. He still lacks that confidence.
Speaking with the Express-News via telephone from his hometown in Kansas City, Mo., on Friday afternoon, Denmon said he will use his long slide on draft night as motivation once he arrives in San Antonio. “With my accolades and my body of work, I was still overlooked,” said Denmon, who next month will compete for the Spurs’ summer league team in Las Vegas. “I’m going in hungry and humble.”
Typically speaking, little is ever expected out of the No. 59 pick in the NBA draft. That is fine by Marcus Denmon, the Missouri guard the Spurs selected with the draft’s second-to-last selection Thursday night. “I feel I’m better than the 59th pick,” Denmon said.

Joan Nielsen: English and Denmon seem like guys the #Timberwolves could consider with 58th pick. And I’m not just saying that because I went to Mizzou.
