Tiago Splitter Denies Real Madrid Rumor
Spurs center Tiago Splitter laughed off rumors that Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid intends to make a run at him in the off-season, when he will be a free agent.
“That’s because they’re having an election,” the former MVP of the Spanish ACB League said before Monday’s Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Grizzlies.
Splitter explained that the clubs that own the teams in the Spanish League elect officials every four years, a process that always brings campaign promises.
“Every guy who runs for club president promises to bring in this guy or that guy so they can get elected,” he said.
