Nando De Colo

  1. Tuesday And-1 links: Plenty of small free agency updates (plus Spencer Hawes wants Blake Griffin’s number)

    Jul 8, 2014, 6:35 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond

    Spencer Hawes wants to arm wrestle Blake Griffin for the No. 32 jersey…. Hawes on the Clips is going to be fun.

  2. Spurs trade Nando De Colo to Raptors for Austin Daye

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:38 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat

    Nando De Colo fell out of the Spurs rotation, and Austin Daye was even further outside the Raptors’. Maybe a change of scenery will do both good. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: San Antonio has traded Nando De Colo to the Toronto Raptors for Austin Daye, league source tells Yahoo Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February…

  3. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  4. Update: Manu Ginobili out 3-4 weeks after straining hamstring

    Jan 29, 2014, 4:58 PM EDT

    San Antonio vs Miami Heat

    UPDATE 4:57 pm: Turns out this was worse than the Spurs were letting on at first. Manu Ginobili will be out 3-4 weeks, the team announced. Ginobili had an MRI on his leg Wednesday and it revealed the strain. The Spurs do not mess around with these injuries, preferring to rest their players more now…

  5. Spurs’ Tony Parker out at least two games with shin injury

    Dec 17, 2013, 8:17 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    San Antonio’s ability to be without a player, just plug in another guy and make it work is the stuff of legend. However, it’s a lot harder for them to do this with Tony Parker than anyone else — he is the focal point of the offense. Yet that’s what the Spurs are going to…

  6. Popovich believes foreign coaches can thrive in NBA — if they get a chance

    Oct 10, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    Just a quick glance down the Spurs roster — Tony Parker, Nando De Colo and Boris Diaw from France; Manu Ginobili from Argentina; Marco Belinelli from Italy; Tiago Splitter from Brazil; Patty Mills from Australia — and you know Gregg Popovich and the Spurs brain trust believes some foreign coaches are getting it right. From…

  7. Behind Parker and Batum, France cruises to first European championship

    Sep 22, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    France's Parker attempts to get past Lithuania's Seibutis and Maciulis during their European championship basketball final match in Ljubljana

    Tony Parker has three NBA titles and a Finals MVP, but in six previous attempts he had not been able to lead his native France to a EuroBasket championship. Until Sunday. France won it’s first ever European title on Sunday, pulling away from Lithuania in the second quarter and cruising to an 80-66 win. France…

  8. Five things to know about the EuroBasket 2013 Championship Game

    Sep 22, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    BASKETBALL-EURO2013-FRIENDLY-FRA-GEO

    Who: France vs Lithuania. The French squad features five current NBA players in Tony Parker (Spurs), Nicolas Batum (Blazers), Boris Diaw (Spurs), Nando De Colo (Spurs) and Joffrey Lauvergne (Nuggets). Former NBA players Johan Petro, Alexis Ajinca and Mickael Gelabale are on the roster as well. The Lithuanian squad features only two NBA players in Donatas…

  9. Report: Mike Bibby working out with Spurs at mini-camp

    Sep 3, 2013, 5:55 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby

    We told you earlier this summer Mike Bibby was looking to play one more year in the NBA, then follow his father into coaching (although Mike wouldn’t put it that way). Problem was, he was unimpressive with the Knicks two seasons ago — 39 games, 2.9 points per game with a PER of 7.8 —…

  10. Royal Ivey to work out with Rockets, Spurs

    Aug 25, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Royal Ivey, Randy Foye

    Teams are now in the “who should we get for roster spot 13/14/15” mode, looking at names you know but will have little impact during the season. Names such as Royal Ivey, who has been in the NBA for nine seasons and spent the last one in Philadelphia, where he averaged 3.2 points a game…

  11. Thursday And-1 links: Derrick Rose’s first game may be Oct. 5 vs. Pacers

    Aug 1, 2013, 7:36 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because I love bullet points more than I love a good Phó (and I do love a good Phó)…. • When…

  12. Danny Green and Gary Neal lead Spurs’ historic 3-point shooting night

    Jun 12, 2013, 12:57 AM EDT

    Danny Green, Gary Neal

    Get ready, Tracy McGrady, Corey Joseph and Patty Mills. Nando De Colo and Aron Baynes, you might suit up too. Even Stephen Jackson should be on alert. It seems Gregg Popovich can play any guard and get an elite performance in these NBA Finals. Danny Green – cut by the Cavaliers and twice by the…

  13. Gregg Popovich: American players don’t work as hard as foreign players

    Jun 11, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard, Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw, Tim Duncan

    I always figured the Spurs’ large contingent of international players – Tim Duncan (U.S. Islands), Tony Parker (France), Manu Ginobili (Argentina), Tiago Splitter (Brazil), Boris Diaw (France), Cory Joseph (Canada), Nando De Colo (France), Patty Mills (Australia) and Aron Baynes (Australia) – was the product of three main reasons. 1. Scouting. San Antonio does an…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers show up for a half, that’s enough in New Orleans

    Dec 6, 2012, 3:29 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching Bilbo Baggins going on a drunken ‘Unexpected Journey’… Lakers 103, Hornets 87: On night where Kobe Bryant became only the 5th player in NBA history to hit the 30,000 career point plateau, the Lakers also got the win. And so…

  15. Ray Allen hits a clutch three to help Heat bury the Spurs (VIDEO)

    Nov 30, 2012, 12:05 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat

    This game wasn’t about who won or lost necessarily, considering Gregg Popovich’s decision to send home his three best players before it even got started. The controversy created by that move will be discussed for days, and maybe longer depending on what David Stern has in mind for Popovich and the Spurs as punishment for…

  16. Heat barely beat undermanned Spurs, but controversy will linger beyond this game

    Nov 29, 2012, 11:23 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    The Heat did what they’ve been doing all season long on Thursday, which was play down to the level of their competition for the majority of the night, before ending up with a win after all is said and done. Yes, Miami took care of the Spurs 105-100, but it wasn’t the same Spurs team…

  17. Report: San Antonio shows interest in Mickael Pietrus

    Nov 20, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    The Spurs need help at the three — starter Kawhi Leonard is out at least another week with tendonitis in his knee, then last night his backup, Stephen Jackson, broke the little finger on his shooting hand and is out at least a month. The Spurs have called up James Anderson from the D-League but…

  18. Video: Clippers Crawford nutmegs Spurs De Colo

    Nov 8, 2012, 10:14 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    DeAndre Jordan loves this play. LOVES IT. Nutmeg is an old-school term, believe it or not. Seriously. The stuffy Oxford English Dictionary says the term (when not talking about the food) is first seem “in the 1870s which in Victorian slang came to mean ‘to be tricked or deceived, especially in a manner which makes…

  19. Quick look at opening Olympic medal round games

    Aug 6, 2012, 10:26 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 10 - Basketball

    Finally, we are done with the “everyone gets to play” portion of Olympic basketball. Time to get on with it. Eight teams remain in the win-or-go home medal round tournament starting Wednesday. The matchups are set after Brazil knocked off Spain (with Spain sitting key players in the fourth) and a surprise that didn’t matter…

  20. Tim Duncan took a serious pay cut to get Spurs under tax line

    Jul 26, 2012, 12:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan spreads his arms during a stop in play during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Last year, Tim Duncan was the third-highest paid player in the NBA at $21.5 million. Next season he is going to make $9.65 million. Three other guys on the Spurs will make more than Duncan. And he’s good with that. He signed a three-year deal with raises from that level. In an age where Andrew…
