Davis Bertans is expected to see "plenty of time" off the bench this season after making some noise from the 3-point line during the preseason.
"I won’t have to tell him to shoot, which is great," coach Gregg Popovich said after Bertans took 11 3-point attempts in the team’s intrasquad scrimmage Tuesday, making six. "And he gets it off pretty quickly, too. At 6-foot-10, that’s a good thing." Bertans is averaging 5.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.6 blocks and 1.0 treys in just 13.8 minutes through five games, so there is some upside here. A lot of things will need to go right for Bertans this season and he's competing for minutes off the bench with Kyle Anderson and David Lee, so just keep any eye on him if you're in a deeper league.

Davis Bertans has not officially signed his contract and will not play on Saturday.

It's a small letdown for the die-hard fans out there. Bertans is a good scorer, so he would have been someone to watch. Hopefully, he can get under contract for the next time out. He's still not expected to make the rotation.
Jul 9 - 3:12 PM

Davis Bertans agreed to a two-year deal with the Spurs.

He was a 2011 second-round pick and has played overseas. Bertans is more of a shooter and has been a bit injury prone. He'll likely just be injury insurance at age 24.
Jul 6 - 6:57 PM

The Spurs will reportedly offer Davis Bertans a minimum deal.

The Latvian forward was the 42nd pick in the 2011 draft and currently plays for Laboral Kutxa in Spain. The 24-year-old sharpshooter recently recovered from his second straight torn ACL in his right knee, but he is believed to be 100 percent. While he does have one more year left on his deal, the Spurs will be able to buy him out and offer him a minimum contract.

Davis Bertans (knee), who is rehabbing from his second straight torn ACL, is rehabbing in San Antonio.

Bertans is a Spurs draft-and-stash player, and after tearing his ACL in both 2013 and 2014, Bertans is making "inspiring" progress. He's a name to watch as the Spurs turn over their roster this offseason, but he wouldn't be a fantasy option upon immediately coming over.

Davis Bertans, a Latvian Sharpshooter whose NBA rights are owned by the Spurs, suffered another torn ACL in his right knee.

It's the second time in the last two seasons that Bertans tore his right ACL, and he is looking at another lengthy recovery period. "We are devastated for the young man and for his team," Spurs general manager R.C. Buford said. "We know how hard he had worked to return from his previous injury. It’s not an easy thing to do, and this new injury is very unfortunate." Bertans was playing well for his team in Spain (Baskonia) before suffering the injury, but this latest setback significantly decreases the chances that we will see him in the NBA.

European forwards Davis Bertans (Latvia) and Nikola Mirotic (Real Madrid) are both expected to stay in the NBA Draft.

Both players should be taken late in Round 1, while the world hopes that one of them will become the next Dirk Nowitzki.
