Spurs Draft-and-Stash Prospect Davis Bertans Shining Overseas

By Jay Desai

The San Antonio Spurs have multiple draft-and-stash prospects within their organization. One of those players is Davis Bertans who plays in the Spanish ACB, a league widely considered the second best basketball league in the world.

Bertans has been on an absolute tear this season for his team Laboral Kuxta. Since the ACB season began in October, Bertans is averaging 14.0 points and 3.5 rebounds on 50.8% from the field in league play.

Davis Bertans could play an important part in San Antonio’s future. He is a great shooter with size, 6-foot-10 frame.

Davis Bertans has also played well for Laboral Kuxta in Euroleague competition. There, the Latvian forward is averaging 12.0 points and 4.0 rebounds.

These are great signs for the Spurs organization as the team is slowly coming to the end of the Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili era.

Bertans could play an important part in San Antonio’s future. He is a great shooter with size, 6-foot-10 frame. Davis Bertans is also an improving rebounder, evident by his recent double-double performance in an ACB game, 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Davis Bertans just recently turned 22-years-old as well, meaning there is plenty of room for him to grow.

Air Alamo will continue to track the forward’s progress throughout the Spanish ACB season.

Other Spurs Draft-and-Stash Prospects Updates

2013 first-round pick Livio Jean-Charles has been struggling this season after missing the last with a knee injury. Jean-Charles is only averaging 2.4 points and 3.7 rebounds on 36.4% shooting from the field in limited minutes. Hopefully he gets back on track as the Spurs have invested a lot in the forward, sending out person specifically to monitor Jean-Charles’ development.

Adam Hanga, one of the Spurs older draft-and-stash prospects at 25, has been off to a solid start for Italian team Sidigas Avellino. The 6-foot-7 shooting guard is averaging 11.6 points and 5.0 rebounds. The one thing Hanga needs to improve on is his field goal percentage. The Hungarian guard is only shooting 24-of-66 from the field. The good news though is that Hanga is shooting 50% on two-point field goals.

Nemanja Dangbuic, San Antonio’s most recent draft-and-stash selection, has been playing well for Serbian Crvena zvedza. The nearly 6-foot-9 shooting guard has been averaging 7.1 points, 3.1 rebounds,and 2.1 assists in 19.4 minutes per game this season. Dangubic is also shooting well from three, 38.5% on the season.
