DARKO RAJAKOVIC- WOW - This guy is from the SPanish league.. The 2nd Division but he is still a Coach over there.
The Coaches look rock solid. Hopefully We will find another Center or another Gary Neal..
Surprised to see James Anderson on there. Thought his agent requested a trade? I'm glad Ajinca is getting a shot. He shoots well for a big guy. Zeller sucks IMO. I don't like Byars at all. He is a street baller to me. I'm gald Dawson is on the squad. I really liked Tyler Wilkerson two summers ago. I thought he deserved a training camp invite. Not big on Cedric Jackson but they need PGs for the summer league team. Really interested in Ryan Richards. Overall a strong roster and overall impressed with the squad chosen. Looking forward to seeing them play.
Austin Day is better than Nando De colo, Dejuan Blair, and Matt Bonner!
Our Summer league Assistants have a real International flare. Both are Assistants from major European clubs. So Expect a High Basketball IQ plus a huge chunk of Spurs coaches.
Christos Marmarinos is from Olympiacos BC in Greece. Marmarinos
Lele Molin is from Pallacanestro Cantu in Italy.
Cory Joseph looked like he learned a lot from Tony Parker... super happy to see his confidence level sky-rocket... he even carries himself like Parker out there, spin moves, floater, jumper, and even laughing and pacing... and I saw him lead many huddles out there that turned to successful plays. Kawhi was beast after the refs showed him respect. Dawson was dope too... great first game!
