Tiago Splitter: I want to announce that I have completed my cycle in San Antonio Spurs. This way, I end a glorious stage with the Spurs Family, that I started 5 years ago, and in which I’ve accomplished something as unique and amazing as winning a Championship. From the first moment when I came to this city, I felt the love and warmth of its people, so I can only thank you all. Here I grew up as a player and person. During these years, we went through unforgettable moments, the hardest and the happiest ones. I’ll take them for my whole life. I would like to express all my Respect, Admiration and Gratitude to my coach and mentor Gregg Popovic for his confidence and tremendous professionalism.

According to multiple league sources, the Spurs have made center Tiago Splitter available for trade, in hopes of shedding from the books the $8.5 million he is due next season.
It has been widely assumed in league circles that the Spurs would be forced to try to trade veteran forward Tiago Splitter to help create the needed salary-cap flexibility to handle the max deals San Antonio has earmarked for Leonard and the likes of Aldridge or Memphis’ Marc Gasol and still have room to accommodate Duncan and Ginobili at reduced salaries if the latter two chose to play on. But sources told ESPN.com that the Spurs actually rebuffed trade interest from teams hoping to pry Splitter away in conjunction with Thursday’s NBA draft, raising the possibility that Splitter might also stick around.: 2 more rumors
One scenario on the personnel grapevine gaining steam is the notion that the Spurs could elect to explore the possibility of dealing away Tiago Splitter to create more financial flexibility. Splitter has two years left on his contract valued at just under $17 million and is quietly regarded as a key contributor in San Antonio given how well he fits as a frontcourt sidekick next to Duncan. But if you’re the Spurs — and if the increasingly loud rumbles about Aldridge having San Antonio as the preferred destination atop his wish list prove true — examining Splitter’s trade market might suddenly become unavoidable.
The only questions are, how many and how important, and what might they bring back with the possibility of more than $20 million in space under the salary cap. This is what we know: Parker, Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw, Patty Mills and Kyle Anderson are all on the books for a total of about $34.2 million for 2015-16.
Tiago Splitter and his recalcitrant right calf logged a little less than 10 minutes in the Spurs’ series-opening loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday. That was by coach Gregg Popovich’s orders. Having emerged unscathed from his first live action since April 3, the Spurs’ starting center expects to see his involvement rise in Game 2 on Wednesday. “I feel like at least least it didn’t get worse,” said Splitter, who had four points and three rebounds in his Game 1 cameo. “I got some minutes. That’s good. Even in the practices, I didn’t go hard. So it was good to feel myself in the game and running.”

The tightness in starting forward Tiago Splitter’s right calf isn’t serious, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich says, but the injury could still keep him out for at least a week, including a critical home-and-home set with Southwest Division rival Houston. “There’s some edema and some stuff in there,” said Popovich, speaking less than two hour before tipoff of Sunday’s home game with Golden State. “It’s not real serious, but enough to keep him out a while. Hopefully we’ll get him back. He’s part of why we’ve played well lately, a big part of it. “But he’ll miss tonight, he’ll probably miss (Oklahoma) City and Houston back-to-back, I’d imagine. I don’t want lose him. No matter who we end up playing (in the playoffs), he’s a big part of that.”
