According to mundodeportivo.com, Erazem Lorbek is considering making the jump to the NBA and the San Antonio Spurs:
Erazem Lorbek is seriously considering going to play in the NBA. Although next season will be part of Regal FC Barcelona, as the club recently became effective option to renew for another year, the Slovenian has in mind playing in the best league in the world at the end of the season 2011-12.Slovenia coach Bozidar Maljkovic, which made it clear yesterday to explain, with tremendous anger, the power forward he phoned to say he refuses to go to the Eurobasket of Lithuania “the possibility of playing in the NBA.”
Another sign Lorbek might be coming to the NBA and the Spurs is his contract was only renewed for one season with Regal BC Barcelona. Also, Lorbek does find the fact his rights are now owned by the Spurs after the draft day deal with the Pacers and finds playing in San Antonio interesting:
“With this change, is much more interesting to me. My eternal hope is to cross the Atlantic to play in the strongest league in the world. This is the dream of every basketball player.”
He is a 240 lbs., 6-10 forward/center who averaged 8.4 points, shot 56.5% from the field, shot 72.2% from the free-throw line in the 2010-2011 season with Regal.
As the report stated, Lorbek’s contract is over after the 2011-2012 season and with the Spurs needing a legit center, could Lorbek be the answer?
