The 23-year-old scored 29 points three times that season and dished out a career-high 8 assists twice.

Vassell has played in 171 games in his career, averaging 11.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 24.4 minutes per game. Through his first three seasons, he has made 292 three-pointers, which ranks third in franchise history for a Spur.
