Former Spur Keith Langford may have had a short sting with the Spurs, playing in only two regular season games totaling two points and two rebounds, but it was enough to make him a favorite among Spurs and Austin Toros fans.
After Langford was waived by the Spurs in January of 2008, he chose to head overseas instead of going back to the D-League.
Langford played for Angelico Biella from 2007-08 and Virtus Bolgna from 2008-09.
After years of starring on D-League teams and playing through ten-day contracts in the NBA, Langford finally found redemption by leading Virtus Bologna to the EuroChallenge championship and winning the EuroChallenge Final Four MVP in 2009.
Langford then joined BC Khimki in Moscow. In March, Langford signed a four-year extension with the club that will earn him $2.3 million per year, according to eurobasket.com.
Langford recently sat down with Solobasket.com (via Google Translate) for an interview and gave his thoughts on the D-League, his experience playing overseas and his aspirations.
Biella was special for me because it was my first experience after being cut by San Antonio Spurs. Luca Becchi, my coach was very important to me then and taught me a lot about the versatility of a player.no comments
