Three-year NBA forward Mickael Gelabale is receiving interest on a possible deal with FC Barcelona, sources told RealGM.
FC Barcelona will be without two integral players next season, losing Kostas Papanikolaou to the Houston Rockets and Erazem Lorbek in a buyout agreement. The European powerhouse has Gelabale on a list of potential additions.
Lorbek’s NBA rights are owned by San Antonio, but the 6-foot-11, former Michigan State forward won’t join the Spurs this summer and will recover his body to full health before deciding on his next professional contract, a source told RealGM. Lorbek, 30, has already announced he’s unable to play in the World Cup for the Slovenian national team due to injury.
Gelabale averaged 5 points and 2.7 rebounds in 36 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2013. Some NBA teams planned to watch Gelabale perform for France in the World Cup.
Gelabale was a second round pick in 2005 to the then-Seattle SuperSonics, and played two seasons with the franchise and suffered an ACL injury that subsequently led him to the NBA Development League and overseas teams.
James Harden and Anthony Davis are the only holdovers from the 2012 Olympics team that will play for the United States in the World Cup.
The Spurs own the draft rights to Erazem Lorbek.
