One of the San Antonio Spurs' commodities overseas, forward Davis Bertans, will be heading to the Alamo City for some training with the team
According to his agent Arturs Kalnitis (via Sportacentrs.com), Davis will spend the full summer in San Antonio to train with the team once his season with Partizan in the Serbian League is over.
"Davis right after the season will go to San Antonio to work with the Spurs' coaches," said his agent Kalnītis. "He'll be in the U.S. until the start of the Latvian national team training," added the player's agent.
While with Partizan in the Serbian League, Bertans averaged 6.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, and shot 47% in 19.6 minutes in 10 games. While playing in the Adriatic League for Partizan, Bertans averaged 9.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, shot 44% from the three-point line, and 48.5% from the field in 22.8 minutes in 28 games.
In his most recent game, Bertans finished with 15 points in a Partizan win over Crvena, 71-63.
For the Spurs to have him train in San Antonio shows they are high on his upside. He is a deadly shooter, and athletic but he still needs to develop a post game and add some size. However, this won't be the first time he spends his offseason in San Antonio. Last summer, Bertans, along with Adam Hanga, were in San Antonio for individual workouts.
The 6'8" forward was drafted by the Pacers in the 2011 NBA Draft but was dealt to the Spurs in the George Hill-Kawhi Leonard trade.
