Would Nene look good in silver and black?
It’s uncertain whether Spurs majority owner Peter Holt would authorize the big payment that Nene likely would command.
The Spurs would likely need for Duncan to exercise his early-termination option this summer and sign a longer-term deal for less money to give the Spurs the financial flexibility to even think about signing a player like Nene — or anybody else of his level for that matter.
But Nene might listen to the Spurs for a couple of reasons.
His talents would fit exactly what the Spurs need after their 61-win season.
He also would be coming to perhaps the NBA’s most welcoming team to international players. Nene potentially would be reuniting with his old friend, rookie Brazilian power forward Tiago Splitter.
It’s unsure if it would make him come to San Antonio for less money. He probably wouldn’t.
But Nene likely would at least listen to the Spurs if they showed any interest in him.
