Omari Spellman RumorsAll NBA Players
If the Spurs are considering Spellman, the move does make sense. Pau Gasol will turn 38 next month, and some around the NBA anticipate he’ll be mentioned in trade talks this offseason. Though Gasol is still efficient, his scoring production did decline in his second season with the Spurs. Gasol averaged 10.1 points and 8.0 rebounds in 77 games. He’s scheduled to make $16 million next season, the second of a three-year, $48 million deal he signed last summer.
Though plenty of teams are looking to add a wing player or two in this year’s draft, there are some valuable big men to consider, with Villanova University Omari Spellman in the mix. League sources told the Express-News the Spurs are targeting Spellman for a second workout before next Thursday’s NBA Draft. The freshman forward averaged 10.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in his only season at Villanova, helping the Wildcats capture their second NCAA men’s basketball championship in three years while also being named Big East Rookie of the Year.
BDA Sports has signed several prospects for the NBA draft, including Georgia Tech guard Josh Okogie, Villanova forward Omari Spellman and Texas A&M forward/center Robert Williams. Calvin Andrews is representing Okogie, Marlon Harrison is representing Spellman, and Kevin Bradbury is representing Williams.
