The problem is the nba rookie rules. I believe rookies max is 3 mil. So if hanga can make 6 million in Europe it would be hard for spurs to convince him to come over. hanga will come over to the states if he believes he can potentially be an all star and eventually make 10 to 15 million.
Edit - the first three years for rookies is very low, so hanga will lose possibly about 11 million for the first 3 years in San antonio
