Splitter’s Value Rising Out of Spurs’ Range?
Spurs center Tiago Splitter tries hard not to think about the money. This, he acknowledges, can often be easier said than done.
His value boosted by a breakout third NBA season, in a league not exactly known for restraint when it comes to throwing big dollars at tall people, Splitter is poised to enter free agency this summer holding a lottery ticket all but guaranteed to hit the jackpot.
So yes, Splitter admits, sometimes he does think about the money.
“I’m not thinking about it during the games, of course,” Splitter said of his looming first brush with NBA free agency. “But it’s difficult not to think about it other times. It’s in your head.”
