When the San Antonio Spurs were looking for a small forward, Tracy McGrady may not have been the first option. It's being reported the Spurs were looking at an Argentinian player to join Manu Ginobili in silver and black.
Andres Nocioni turned down an offer from the Spurs 15 days ago according to. Nocioni's agent confirmed he got an offer from NBA (@SportandoBasket)
This is disappointing news for Spurs fans who are in love with Argentinian players who show heart and play hard every night. We're seeing that right now with Manu Ginobili in the playoffs, but saw that with Fabricio Oberto also when he was on the team. Nocioni would've brought toughness and he's been known to guard the power forward position, which would've been a tough guard with his 3-point shooting.
What do you think of this news Spurs fans? Would Nocioni have been a good addition if he would've accepted?
Hell yeah i always liked him as a player, but that was before all his injuries, so i dont know how effective he would have been but i loved his toughness, so why did he turn us down?
He probably wouldn't see any playing time like Mcgrady. If he didn't want a shot at a ring then we don't want players like that anyway.
@rtesoro440 He is the same age as McGrady (33). And the last time he played in the NBA was last season, but he only played 11 games with the 76ers.
