The San Antonio Spurs are taking a more active involvement in the development of unsigned players whom they own the draft rights for in the NBA.
The Spurs have sent an assistant to work with Livio Jean-Charles.
"David was sent by the Spurs, and he will be present throughout the year," said Jean-Charles in an interview with BeBasket. "He is here to witness but also be involved with my season here. But I want to be clear, Peter Vincent is in charge of my evolution at ASVEL."
Tony Parker partially owns ASVEL.
The Spurs also played a role in setting a timetable for Davis Betrans' return from injury. Betrans was a 2011 draft pick of the Spurs, but he has no contractual obligations to the team.
