Erazem Lorbek's agent, Maurizio Balducci, told HoopsHype that the future of his client is still unclear and there's nothing done with the San Antonio Spurs, the team that owns his rights in the NBA. Balducci said they've been very happy with FC Barcelona, but also said that San Antonio's European style of basketball makes the Spurs an attractive destination. "The scenario is still not clear because his season came to an end just five days ago, so we cannot have a clear picture so far," Balducci said. "We are not allowed to negotiate with the NBA till July 1, so we have to wait." HoopsHype

All options are currently open, NBA does not have a leading position. Kosarka.si
