Not that anyone on this board cares, but I seem to remember some fellow Spurs fans lurk here.
Robertas Javtokas, 6-10
Rebounder, Shot blocker, limited offensive game.
No more Nazr and Rasho for the Black and Silver

Has he signed on for or will he need 'seasoning'? Looks young and active. Maybe a bigger Malik Rose, eh?

Well they can't officially sign until July 12, but he will be signed then.
The spurs originally drafted him 4 years ago. He rapidly progressed from lower divisions to the premier league of Euro ball. He had a bad motorcycle accident when he was 22, 20 when he was drafted that cost him a year. Fully recovered and ready to come learn the nba.
He has offfensive potential, nice jump shot for a 5, not as good of rebounder as rose, but much more athletic, needs to develop toughness, he will get ragdolled by big strong traditional centers, but he is a hybrid type if you are looking to play small ball like phoenix and dallas. Against those teams he will thrive.
Probably won't start right away as the spurs will play small with parker, manu, bowen, bonner and duncan
