Have the Spurs promised the 29th pick to Davis Bertans?
That’s the rumor anyway.
There was a post on SpursTalk that ESPN.com’s Chad Ford mentioned the Spurs made a promise to Davis Bertans, the 6’10” small forward out of Latvia, that they would draft him with the 29th pick, but there was no link to back it up.
And now, according to DraftExpress, that is indeed the story. If Bertans is available when the Spurs go on the clock, that is. DraftExpress has Bertans going 26th to the Mavs in their mock draft.
Bertans is rumored to have a promise at No. 29 from San Antonio, but that won’t stop Dallas from taking him if they like him.
Ford’s latest mock draft has the Spurs selecting Bertans at 29 (ESPN Insider story).
And for good measure, here’s everything DraftExpress has on Bertans.
Stay tuned for more over the next couple of days leading up to Thursday night’s draft.
