"When you get an opportunity you have to seize it," said Wilkerson, who is 22 years old. "That was just me seizing it. I got an opportunity and I made the best of it."
Now Wilkerson has options.
Wilkerson has agreed to a deal with defending Israeli Super League champions Galil Gilboa. He can head overseas if the Spurs do not offer him a spot on their team.
"It's a deal we had on the table for some time," Wilkerson said. "I have it in case I don't make an NBA team. It's a great situation for me."
But, Wilkerson said he's growing more optimistic about his chances with the Spurs with each passing day. The organization continues to request Wilkerson's return to San Antonio to work out at the team's training complex.
There are five players there, including Gee, a 6-6 guard from Alabama, and James Gist, a 6-9 forward out of Maryland. Gee averaged 14.2 points and 5.2 rebounds. Gist posted an even 9 points and 5 boards a game.
The Spurs will likely hand out two roster spots to the final five competitors.
"We all played together in Summer League and we all played well," Wilkerson said. "I know my situation. They keep calling me back here every week. As long as they keep doing that, I'm all right."
