Video: Spotlight Viktor Sanikidze

Selected by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2004 NBA Draft, forward Viktor Sanikidze's rights were immediately traded to the San Antonio Spurs. Since then, he has yet to come to the NBA.

Viktor is currently leading Team Georgia at EuroBasket 2013 averaging 19 points per game but for Spurs fans, some wonder if he will ever come to San Antonio and bring his passion for the game.

In the video below, Spurs fans can really get to know Viktor and what makes him tick on and off the court. And if the video is any indication, it seems he has all the tools needed to come to the NBA and succeed.

With Italian team Montepaschi Siena in the Euroleague, he averaged 5.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, and shot 53 percent in 17.5 minutes.

He shows a deft shooting stroke, excitement for the game, and everything needed to make it with the Spurs but the question still remains – will Viktor come to the NBA and join San Antonio or is he just another European prospect that will stay overseas?
