Spurs rookie guard Cory Joseph took his demotion to Austin on Tuesday afternoon with a good attitude. After arriving back in San Antonio with the Spurs early Tuesday morning from Minneapolis, he was practicing with his new Toros teammates at the Spurs’ training center later in the day. “I’m going to go to Austin and play hard and show everybody what I’ve got,” Joseph said. “It will be a good experience for me.” Jones said that consistent playing time for Joseph is the primary reason for the roster move. “The consensus is that he just needs to play,” Jones said. “He’s had about four days of training camp. They are playing about four games a night. He just needs to go out and get what he had today.” San Antonio Express-News

He has been exchanging messages via Twitter with various up-and-coming Canadian players, including first-round picks Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph, point guards Myck Kabongo and Kevin Pangos and Andrew Wiggins, considered the best Canadian prospect since Nash himself. “I would love to have him involved in this program in whatever way makes sense to him at whatever point makes sense to him.

Kendall said he was pleased with the way San Antonio Spurs first round pick Cory Joseph has handled himself since joining the team — and not just in terms of adapting to the increased physicality. “I’ve been most impressed with his attitude, not having a sense of entitlement (from being a first round selection),” Kendall said of the Pickering native, who turned 20 on Saturday. “He understands guys have been here (a while), he’s got to prove himself before he gets that respect. He has to earn it to a certain extent so that’s what I’ve been most surprised (about). It’s nice to see that.” Toronto Sun

Canada is trying to avoid missing three straight Olympics for the first time. The team made the world championships last year for the first time since 2002 in part by defeating the favoured Dominican Republic at the last FIBA Americas tournament. “I’m sure they will have revenge on their mind,” Kendall said of the Dominican squad, which features NBA players Al Horford, Francisco Garcia and Charlie Villanueva and is coached by Kentucky’s John Calipari. Argentina and Puerto Rico traditionally are strong opponents as well. Brazil will be without its NBA players Leandro Barbosa, Nene and Anderson Varejao, while Joseph’s future San Antonio teammate Tiago Splitter is questionable due to an injury. Toronto Sun
