Tiago Splitter Laughs Off Rumors of Interest from Real Madrid

by May 28, 2013

When asked about speculation by a Spanish radio station that Real Madrid was going to come after him this summer, San Antonio Spurs center Tiago Splitter said the rumors had no substance to them. Per the Express-News: “‘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.”
