Spurs Interested In Bo McCalebb

The Spurs are seriously interested in signing Lega Basket Serie A point guard Bo McCalebb,  according to Sportando.  However, his club,  Montepaschi Siena, is not presently satisfied with the buyout that the Spurs have offered. 

McCalebb, 27, played his college basketball at the University of New Orleans prior to moving overseas and spending time in Turkey, Serbia, and Italy.  Last season, the point guard was named the Italian League MVP with 16.9 PPG and 2.6 APG.  The 6'0" guard could have a tough time fitting in with San Antonio, however, as they already have a few undersized backcourt players.

So far, the Spurs are the only known NBA team with interest in signing the New Orleans native but a pair of European clubs are reportedly targeting him.  Europe Fenerbahce Ulker and Unics Kazan could offer to Siena a buyout in excess of $1.21MM, according to Sportando.
