The San Antonio Spurs are bringing in two big men next week whose surnames together make up the name of a former NBA player and coach. Brian Butch and Warren Carter will work to make a name for themselves in their professional basketball careers as Butch Carter did, and for them, they likely see the Spurs as a place that could take them there. According to Keith Kreiter of Edge Sports International, a sports management company, said that Carter, a 6-9 Illinois grad with a bevy of international experience and a stint with the New York Knocks, will be in town next Tuesday and Wednesday. Kreiter noted on Twitter that Carter has played very well overseas the last few years.
