TEXAS– A Reading native made his NBA debut on Thursday night.

San Antonio Spurs’ G Lonnie Walker IV entered the team’s 125-107 win against the Toronto Raptors with about 5 minutes left to play.

He hit one of two shots he took, nailing a long three-pointer:

Walker IV, 20, also had a rebound.

After being drafted in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft, Walker IV missed the Spurs first 39 games of the season after suffering a knee injury in preseason.

He will look to carve out his role in the Spurs’ rotation for the rest of the season.
