Colorado Native Derrick White Looks Ahead After Spurs' Playoff Loss To Nuggets

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) – The former CU Buff is coming off his first full season in the NBA. He played in 17 games after being drafted in 2017, followed by 67 games in the 2018-2019 season. He averaged 25 minutes a game and was thrust into a starting role after guard Dejounte Murray tore his ACL in the preseason. “I was working hard all summer just trying to be ready. It's unfortunate what happened to Dejounte, and after that I knew that I had to step up,” said White. “It took a little bit to get used to the speed and everything, and then once I really got my feet underneath me and my confidence up I was able to play and I learned a lot this year and I'm just going to try to build off of it.”
