According to DraftExpress D-League scout Jim Hlavac, the San Antonio Spurs are calling up guard Blake Ahearn
from the Dakota Wizards of the NBA Development League, making Ahearn the first Gatorade Call-Up of the 2008- 2009 season.
Ahearn was in training camp with the Wizards as the D-League season doesn't begin for another two weeks. Last year, there was one call-up before the season started when the New Jersey Nets called up guard Eddie Gill
from the Colorado 14ers.
Coming out Missouri State last season, Ahearn started the year with Dakota and then finished up with the NBA's Miami Heat, playing in ten games and averaging 6.5, 1.5 and 1.5. While with Dakota, Ahearn averaged 19.0, 2.0 and 3.5 while shooting .439 from behind the arc.
Prior to joining the Wizards, Ahearn was with the Minnesota Timberwolves for training camp after playing for them during the Las Vegas Summer League. Ahearn is likely being called up to replace Spurs guard Desmon Farmer.
