ASVEL Rumors

Livio Jean-Charles recently gave an interview to French site BeBasket and while his answers were by no means scandalous, there are some great nuggets there. For starters, Livio states that he doesn’t know whether he is a small forward or a power forward and he and his coach will try to develop his game to be able to play both positions, which I consider great news. He also mentions that he wouldn’t be too thrilled to play in the D-League, which is not great news. But the biggest takeaway from that interview has to be this paragraph: An assistant for the Spurs is by your side this season. What exactly is his role? Is it about your personal development? David was sent by the Spurs, and he will be present throughout the year. He is here to witness but also be involved with my season here. But I want to be clear, Peter Vincent is in charge of my evolution at ASVEL.
San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker has now become the majority share holder in French club ASVEL according to French site L’Equipe. Parker, who served as the team’s Vice President of Basketball Operations, will take the helm of the team in May where he will become the club’s President after acquiring a majority of the shares. “I decided to buy the whole club. Now I’m the majority shareholder and from the end of May I will be president of the Asvel “said Parker.
