Derrick White is an American professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA. A 2012 graduate of Legend High School in Parker, Colorado, White was a six foot combo guard at the time of his graduation.
After not being recruited by any top schools he was offered White a room and board stipend for his freshman season by coach Jeff Culver. His late growth spurt took him from under 6 feet to 6'5'' in a matter of months. With his newfound size and athleticism, White became a star at UCCS, starting every game of his three-year career and left as the school's career leader in points (1,912) and assists (343). He then transferred to Buffalo and had to sit out his first season due to NCAA rules. White excelled in his lone season with the Buffaloes, averaging 18.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. He was named first-team All-Pac-12 and a member of the five-man All-Defensive team.
The San Antonio Spurs drafted White with the 29th pick of the 2017 NBA draft. He has been a consistent part of the team off the bench and is a great rotation player.
