The Spurs drafted Nando De Colo back in 2009, hoping their streak of success with foreign-born players would continue. Since then, he hasn’t been ready to make the leap to the NBA and he’s been playing for the Spanish League team Valencia.
This summer, his contract will be up and he says he may finally be ready to play in the NBA. For now, he’s focused on finishing out his season, but after that remains up in the air.
“It is normal that other clubs now talk to my agent that I am at the end of my contract,” De Colo said. “But I insist that I'm just thinking of the remainder of season. I'm at home in Valencia, I never said anything bad about the team or city. The NBA is still my ultimate goal. I look ready to leap. If I am not now, I will not ever. These years in Europe have helped me to grow.”
