07:00 AM ET 05.17 | Now, let's hope the San Antonio Spurs choose Deshaun Thomas. That's because when the Spurs asked the former Ohio State star for his phone number Wednesday night, he refused to give it to them. Thomas said teams asked him plenty of difficult and interesting questions during his interview process at the combine. But the most interesting, he said, was the fact the Spurs' first question was for his cell phone number and his e-mail address. He gave them the e-mail, but not the phone number. "I can't go around giving it out to everyone," Thomas said Thursday with a laugh. "Now if they want to draft me, I'd be happy to give it to them." Thomas is projected as a second-round pick.

He didn't want to reveal that he is the only walking species type without a cell phone.



It's traumatizing.

Was projected 2nd round but now would probably not be drafted at all...

Is he that good? I don't really know but it says 2nd round and there's only 2 round draft.

A fool and his (big) money are soon parted. And in Deshaun's case, they may never get together in the first place.

Well you're in luck, because no one wants your number anyway

If he gets drafted he won't know because they have his phone number.

LOL...WHAT A IDIOT....I HOPE NO ONE DRAFTS THIS IDIOT....BECAUSE THE SPURS WONT

I actually think it was a smart move not to give it out. By not giving it out, it shows restraint. Restraint to people who will want your money, restraint to people who do not need your number. It shows discipline, something many players do not have. This will not jump his status but it will not have a team not draft him either and if there are two players who a team likes and one has a checker past, the team will take the the better bet.

This was my first reaction to reading this as well.

pretty sure if they wanted his number, they could get it.

Stupid move. I can understand that with a lot of teams, but the Spurs are different. The Spurs have a system that works. Spurs are a team that can turn a 2nd round draft pick into a very good player.
