It now seems if the Spurs want to bring him over to the NBA, they’ll have to buy him out, but his contract does have an NBA buyout option, after each year.
Last season with Partizan, Bertans won the Serbian Championship but suffered a crushing knee injury.
As Project Spurs reported, Bertans suffered a right knee injury in a game versus Crvena Zvezda in the Serbian League Finals. It was a non-contact injury to his right knee.
There were reports Galatasaray of Istanbul was interested in acquiring Davis but the team backed off due to Bertans’ huge contract buyout.
Bertans was drafted by the Pacers in the 2011 NBA draft but was traded to the Spurs as part of the deal that sent Kawhi Leonard to the Spurs in exchange for George Hill.
Bertans will now be playing alongside Spurs draftee Adam Hanga, who also plays for Baskonia at the moment.
