  • Kenneth Faried: Limited output once again

    Faried delivered six points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal across 15 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss to the Legends.

    Faried hasn't been a difference maker for Austin, and he's done little outside of contributing on the glass. The veteran big man is averaging 4.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game, but those are somewhat decent contributions considering he's averaging just 14.1 minutes off the bench per game.

  • Kenneth Faried: Puts up season-high scoring mark

    Faried racked up 13 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five steals, two rebounds and an assist across 23 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 117-110 loss against Capitanes.

    Faried endured a rough start to life in the G League when it comes to his scoring figures, but he bounced back here with an efficient outing and a season-high mark in points. In fact, the 13 points he scored in this win were more than the total combined of his previous three appearances. This is certainly a step in the right direction for the former Nuggets forward.

  • Kenneth Faried: Minimal contributions again

    Faried notched four points (1-6 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks and an assist across 17 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss against the Squadron.

    It would be a stretch to say Faried has been struggling at the G League level, but his offensive production has been quite poor so far. The veteran forward has averaged just 4.0 points per game while shooting 33.3 percent from the field in his first three outings with Austin.

  • Kenneth Faried: Pulls down 12 boards in debut

    Faried recorded six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 FT), 12 rebounds and an assist across 19 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 106-98 win over Lakeland.

    The veteran surprisingly signed with the Spurs' G-League affiliate a few days ago and didn't waste time to make an impact with his energy and rebounding ability. Faried has been bouncing around different countries in recent years, but he seems determined to get another shot at the NBA level, and his best path for that to happen is making things happen with Austin first. This was a decent debut for the veteran, but he should be capable of more at this level.

  • Kenneth Faried: Joins Spurs' G League team

    Faried and the G League's Austin Spurs agreed on a contract Saturday, and he will be available for the night's game against the Lakeland Magic.

    Faried has spent time overseas and in the G League since playing his last NBA season in 2018-19. Last year, he appeared in eight total games between teams in Mexico and Venezuela. When he played for the G League's Grand Rapids Gold in 2021-22, he averaged 10.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in 19.3 minutes. It seems unlikely he'll make a meaningful NBA comeback, but the Spurs are willing to give him a chance.

  • Kenneth Faried: Finds offensive touch

    Faried recorded 23 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds and three blocks over 24 minutes during Tuesday's 120-94 defeat to the Skyhawks.

    The veteran struggled with his shot mightily in the Gold's last contest, but Faried found his rhythm Tuesday. His 23 points marked a new season-high while also marking a team-best during the defeat to the Skyhawks. This was an encouraging bounce-back game out of the 32-year-old.

  • Kenneth Faried: Solid despite rough shooting

    Faried totaled four points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), 15 rebounds, three steals and three blocks over 28 minutes Saturday's 99-92 victory over the Charge.

    The veteran big shot just 20 percent from the floor and failed to top even five points, but Faried was still able to affect the game in other ways. The 32-year-old's 15 rebounds were by far a team-high while he was also able to record six combined blocks and steals. If Faried can figure out his scoring, it would not be surprising to see him back in the big leagues at some point this year.
