Citing an anonymous source, the international basketball website Sportando reported Monday that Bertans has agreed to terms with the Spurs on a four-year, $20 million deal. The report, though, is premature, a league source, as well as a spokesperson for Bertans’ agent, said.
While it’s true the Spurs have shown heavy interest in retaining Bertans and are working toward hammering out a deal, no agreement has been reached, the league source said. A spokesperson for Bertans’ agent, Happy Walters, agreed, saying of the report, “It’s not true.”

I think we’re getting more comfortable with what we’re trying to do offensively and defensively.”
Ky Carlin: Dakota Mathias had 13 assists compared to just 1 turnover and he shot 39.6% from the floor. He did a really good job against the Heat taking care of the ball on Jan. 12 after Ben and Tyrese fouled out. He’ll probably catch on with another team pretty soon. #Sixers
