In a recent interview with ESPN Brazil, San Antonio Spurs’ center, Tiago Splitter, spoke about his road to the Spurs and how he feels to be with the team after three years have past since being drafted by the Spurs.
Splitter on staying overseas the first time he had a chance to join the Spurs:
“In 2007, I still had a one year contract with Caja Laboral and even though I drafted the San Antonio had no right to get me out of the European team, so I decided to stay there.

Splitter on the Spurs:
