Liked his potential as stretch 4. Any interest?

He would be the tallest player on our team.

There has to be more to this story because he was the 19th pick from the 2019 draft.

Perhaps it could be homesickness and he wants to return to Croatia?

Given he’s still very young on a rookie contract, a team like the Spurs don’t just give up on their picks.

Edit: After some reddit digging, apparently he has serious motor and attitude issues.

No lol

The clip was just an example, most posts reacting to news of his release were about his poor work ethic and attitude.

Quote
“I've never openly talked about this on the sub, but I knew Luka was toast when I met him at the Champions Against Hunger dinner right before Covid hit. He came by my table to pour wine with two of the Spurs video guys and complained to me that he wasn't getting any minutes. Valid complaint from his perspective, but not something he should have told a fan (me). I knew then and there that his attitude wasn't where it needed to be and sadly it only became more obvious that he just didn't have the mental fortitude to make it work on this team.”

One story from a Spurs redditor
