South Side Billboard Welcomes NBA Draft Pick Lonnie Walker IV to San Antonio


Spurs rookie guard Lonnie Walker IV has arrived in San Antonio, and the Alamo City is welcoming him with open arms.

Buford's excitement is shared with some San Antonians. This billboard was put up at I-35 and Southcross, sharing a thoughtful message with Walker: welcome home.

The rookie arrived in the Alamo City on Tuesday and has gotten warm welcomes from San Antonians.
