“Will he finally play for the San Antonio Spurs?” seems to be the question surrounding the Spurs 2007 draft pick Tiago Splitter this off-season.
According to cbssports.com, rumor has it Splitter’s agent and Spurs management are already in talks:
The player the Spurs hope to lure to San Antonio next season, 2007 draft pick Tiago Splitter, was named the MVP of ACB for the 2009-10 season. Splitter averaged 21.2 points. Selected 28th overall, the 7-footer has dominated in Europe, and there are rumors that Splitter’s agent is already talking with Spurs management.
Hopefully this is a sign of good news for Spurs fans as one of the most glaring needs for this team is a legitimate center to help Tim Duncan.
