Per Twitter, the Spurs 26th draft pick in 2015, Nikola Milutinov, has agreed to a contract extension with the Greek club, the Olympiacos, through 2020. Milutinov was rumored this summer to possibly get a Summer League invitation, but it didn’t happen. Milutinov would have been another big man for San Antonio’s wing-heavy rotation, and according to Euro Insider earlier this summer, Milutinov had been working on expanding his range and improving his defense.

So, the chances of Milutinov coming to join the Silver and Black have just diminished, unless info surfaces soon about a reasonable NBA-buyout clause in the deal. But as always, we wish him all the luck with his team.
