Apparently they were just waiting for him to recover from an injury.

They also waived Darius Washington. It all went down right after a victory against Tulsa.

Wild week for the Toros.

That's odd that they would waive Washington... And I was going to say Langford would be a 10-day guy, but without knowing any sort of injury report, I didn't say anythinbg.

It's not 10-day time yet.

There's an article explaining most of it:

http://www.draftexpress.com/article/Call-Up-7:-Keith-Langford-Joins-the-Spurs/

The other part is the Spurs are right up against the luxury tax threshold and probably can't/ don't want to keep 15 players this season.

Langford had also worked out for the Nuggets and they were apparently about to sign him before KMart went down and they had to re-sign Jelani McCoy.

The "scout" referred to in the article was actually Spurs GM RC Buford. I really didn't think twice about his presence when I said hi before the game - he's up here that often.
