After it was reported that Erazem Lorbek was seriously thinking about heading to the NBA and joining the San Antonio Spurs, it would appear this may not be happening.
According to sport.es, Lorbek is looking to sign a two-year extension with his current team Regal FC Barcelona:
Lorbek said he was in the middle of negotiations with Barcelona to extend the contract. Joining the two concepts is clear that these talks are very close to completion with the player’s contract extension until June 30, 2014.
As you may recall, his rights were acquired in a draft day deal with the Indiana Pacers. With the Spurs owning h is rights, Lorbek did say the possibility of joining the Spurs was interesting to him.
This news does not bode well for the Spurs and Lorbek. He is getting up in age (27) and with the Spurs looking to add size, it would appear Lorbek will not be an option – at least for the next two years.
