San Antonio Spurs draftee Adam Hanga is apparently being wooed by Spanish club Bilbao in the ACB League but has turned down their offer according to his agent.
Adam Hanga rejected today for a 2nd time Bilbao's offer. Our primary target for next season is a EUL club, not excluding however EUc clubs— GiorgosDimitropoulos (@DimitropulosFCM) May 9, 2013
As his agent states, it seems Hanga will be looking to leave Manresa but in a follow-up Tweet, he says his client has two more years left with Manresa but his current contract has out-clause options.
Hanga is under contract with @bqmanresa for 2more years,but with out-clauses. Situation will evolve with the cooperation of his current club— GiorgosDimitropoulos (@DimitropulosFCM) May 9, 2013
This is quite interesting. Hanga has been playing well with Manresa averaging 11.7 points, 2.3 assists, 4.5 rebounds in 25.6 minutes for Manresa. With his progress on the court, perhaps now Hanga feels he is ready to take on stiffer competition in the EU League.
Recently, Hanga did state he is looking forward to playing in the NBA eventually but isn't in a rush nor does he see the NBA as a goal rather as an opportunity. Moreover, he does admit his game is not at the NBA level yet.
At this point, if playing in the EU League will only help his game progress to the point he feels ready to make his way to the Spurs, then so be it.
This kind of mentality shows us how mature draftee we got. If he will going to join to black and silver either next years, or after I guess he will be much better in skills, and physically to be worth bringing him over.
But definitely, He's already done to play in Spurs jersey, and join to the youth movement
