Walter Tavares: But I have to think first in the NBA. I would not feel well coming back. For me, returning to Europe would be like giving up. I’m going to let this year pass and then I’ll figure out what to do. I spoke with my agent and this is the best option. Stay here, play well and wait for a team to call me. I’m going to give it all this year and I’ll decide if I stay here for another year or take a step back and go back to Europe.
How was when Atlanta waived you? Walter Tavares: It was hard. I was not expecting that. I felt I had given everything. They told me to work hard, to stay in shape and that the opportunity would come. And overnight they changed their minds. You know how the NBA is. Players are like trading cards. They no longer want you so they will trade you for another. It is not like in Spain, for example, where you are comfortable and you can stay on a team for six or seven years. Here it’s different. I feel a little disappointed because I thought I could play in Atlanta and for many years. At least three years. It hurts a lot because it was the team that chose me in the NBA draft and took a chance on me. And overnight they stopped having faith in me and finished my contract.
