Congratulations to Tiago Splitter, as he was named to the All-Regular Season Team by ACB. He averaged 16 points and 6.7 rebounds for Caja Laboral.
Splitter is considered one of the best centers of European basketball and his rights are held by the San Antonio Spurs when they drafted him 28th overall in the 2007 NBA Draft.
Spurs fans are anxiously waiting his arrival to the Spurs to help address the glaring need for a legitimate big man in the paint to play along side Tim Duncan
However, there was a report that Real Madrid will make a run at Splitter for his services. Of course Spurs fans know the team is financially stretched and can only pay up to $500, 000.00 towards any contract buyout.
While European teams have no salary cap, thus making it tempting for Splitter not come to the NBA, all Spurs fans are crossing their fingers in the hopes he decides to forgo a payday and play with the Spurs.
