Spurs Report Member wants a seven Footer...

Nothing is impossible in this world but this dream is pretty improbable...

So I want to prepare you guys for the disappointment... the most probable acquisition of a "big" this off season?

Erazem Lorbek

He was part of the Grant Hill trade and he wants to join the Spurs...

So let me Introduce you to him



Source Spurs Nation

Draft Express Profile



Source DraftExpressProfile: Erazem Lorbek, Stats, Comparisons, and Outlook


FCB Stats Page 2011-2012



Source LORBEK, ERAZEM - Welcome to EUROLEAGUE BASKETBALL

Highlight Video

See Him Play in a Championship Game in Europe's Best Pro League

And this gives me another excuse to post my favorite picture

The vids only suggest that Erazem is a poor man's Red Rocket, and we already own the original.

Maybe there more to him than that...

I agree... Lets hope....scouting also says he has poor lateral movement...but maybe a 3 year outlook is that he does the same things as The Rocket he is cheaper and slightly younger .... who knows...but they do want him :shocked

Most everyone here is aware of him. Some are more optimistic than others. I don't see the Spurs franchise player, that's for sure.

Erazem has high bb IQ which Bonner don't have. He's also way better defender.

But I don't know how much he will want and how much we will offer.

Depends on How well Diaw Plays and What he does if he does play well....
I don't see him getting more than Tiago... especially with the New CBA...

So if they get him he is 4 years younger than Bonner... May do the same things as Bonner but better defensively... and he will be cheaper than Bonner... So when 2013 rolls around you have the option of Amnestying Bonner's partially guaranteed salary

thus

Clearing the Decks

For a team of

Parker
Leonard
(tim's last Harah)
Lorbek
Possibly Danny Green
plus LARGE amount of Cap room for FA

Last time the Spurs had a big FA wallet they didn't get who they wanted(Kidd) so who knows
maybe that kidd Ryan Richards Turns out to be the second coming of Tim DuncanRyan Richards | NBADraft.net

and Maybe Tiago is still on the Roster and he has developed into a 15 and 8 30 minute a night player


and Corey Joseph is developed into a starting viable successor to Tony Parker...

Then all this speculation is just a Moot Point

count me in as one of the optimists. I think he will come over and have an immediate impact. He will be like Oberto X2 which to me means great role player.

My Euro league source tells me he is great, and he hasn't been wrong.

If adding him, and re-signing everyone else (including Diaw) is all we do in the off season, I will be satisfied.

Maybe adding Nando De Colo would be nice too.

I'd like to see him come in and replace bonner and then if diaw plays well trade blair and let diaw replace him. then that leaves us an opportunity to still go out and get a legit big.

He left because he wasn't gettin PT... He was in a league at the direction of The Spurs. I'm sure he told the spurs that the vets weren't giving him pt. It probably wasn't based on ability but the fact that he is an NBA draftee and they weren't... He also had the opportunity to play with the English National Team... and get ready for the Olympics...

Ryan Richards was playing in a Switzerland team. live in Europe and I've learnt that there was a basketball team in Switzerland after Richards goes there. I've lost my hopes on him after that.

Ok.. But I don't think the Spurs Have... Wait for the Olympics and reserve your judgment.. This is the same path that Ian went along... So I expect him to be assigned to the Torros this fall... have a Summer league after that and then we'll see what he is... He does work on his game a ton.

more videos if you look... and you cant coach athleticism and seven feet

How can we possibly get this guy enough playing time?

That is the real question.

Ok let's wait the Olympics. But while Pops Mensah-Bonsu is palying in England front-court, Ricards may not shine.

If you're asking about Lorbek, it depends to Diaw's situation. If Diaw fits to system and help us in play-offs, Lorbek may wait 1 more year. If Diaw can't help, Lorbek may get his chance.

92 minutes to distribute to biggs in every game and Richards is a native born Brit. Do you really think he'll get no Playing time? IF he does what a poor basketball decision and Page Ranking move to bench a native born Brit in favor of rented "ringers"...
