Last year, the San Antonio Spurs selected Adam Hanga of Hungary with the 59th pick in the NBA draft. Hanga has been playing overseas, but his agent has now said he will be coming to San Antonio for a two week workout with the Spurs (H/T @DudaSun).
Per Hanga’s agent, Giorgos Dimitropoulos’ twitter account:
My kid Adam Hanga, drafted last summer, is flying to San Antonio for a 2-week workouts with the Spurs. Special thanks to @assigniamanresa
On Saturday, Jeff Garcia, Bob Gambert of WOAI, and I discussed what the Spurs should do in the offseason. I suggeted they bring in Hanga because he’s a 6’7 shooting guard who has a knack for attacking the basket and getting to the foul line. I don’t know if this is a serious workout to get him acclimated with the system for the future or if they’re really considering bringing him over now, but Hanga is a raw talent that definitely has a lot of upside.
If the Spurs are willing to bring Hanga over and also Nando De Colo of France, what does that say for the future of Danny Green with the team? Green is a restricted free agent and Gary Neal’s contract is also on a team option basis this summer.
Here’s a video we posted in October of Hanga displaying his athletic ability.
