Jeff Ledbetter – 2018-19 G-League Player Profile
June 20th, 2019
SG – 6’3, 195lbs – Born 15th June 1988
Ledbetter started the season with the Spurs, going for his third consecutive season with the team, after also having appeared for San Antonio’s summer league team for two consecutive seasons. However, he stayed for only 19 games before leaving the team, seemingly unannounced, to return to Mexico and played with the Manzaneros de Cuauhtémoc. Ledbetter has been a good G-League player and solid pro mostly on account of his sweet shooting; he lacks for size and athleticism, yet he gets looks away in tight space, off the catch and off screens, being one of the better exponents of the latter category, which immediately conveys value. He does less work off the dribble, but he does pass with a bit of flair out of pick-and-roll situations, a bit like a younger, smaller version of Marco Belinelli. I am sure the (Austin) Spurs would take him back if he wanted to continue his G-League career, because he is an excellent role player whose talents complement the development of any prospects he is paired with. It seems as though he does not want that, though.

I am continuously intrigued by the esoterica and minutiae of all the aspects of building a basketball team. I want to understand how to build the best basketball teams possible. No, I don’t know why, either.
