The Spurs are “seriously interested” in signing New Orleans hoops legend Bo McCalebb, reports the Italian website Sportando. “Bo Lester” has been content in dominating Europe with his current team, Montepaschi Siena. But a drastic budget reduction is dismantling the squad, making McCalebb the top prize on the European market. The problem is that the NBA only allows the Spurs to offer $500,000 to buy out McCalleb, and European franchises can offer a much larger buyout: “San Antonio Spurs are seriously interested in Bo McCalebb, as reported to Sportando. The problem is that the buyout offered by the Spurs is not satisfying Siena. Mens Sana is trying to monetize the departure of the American PG with passport from FYR of Macedonia this summer, considering that the contract signed by the player doesn’t have any buyout this year, for both NBA and Europe. McCalebb has an NBA out just at the end of the upcoming season. The PG should pay by his own part of the buyout if he decides to leave for the NBA now. In Europe Fenerbahce Ulker and Unics Kazan are targeting the player and can offer to Siena a bigger buyout, over the million of euros.”
