SAS Forward: 6’10, 210 lbs; 2nd year, Latvia 

 NBA Role: versatile shooter • UnderDOG

Drafted back in 2011, Davis Bertans is finally a San Antonio Spur; a 24-year old Latvian forward w/ a strong outside shot, Bertans was brought in to give Coach Pop another big w/ floor stretching potential; honing his game overseas has aided Davis’ maturation on both ends – he’s a lot more patient w/ his shot-taking, makes good decisions: doesn’t get rushed but won’t wait to fire if there’s some space; FAST release – Davis doesn’t have the best aesthetics (drops his hands too much) but it allows him to (quickly) fire off curls & screens; huge for a small forward, slight for a power forward – positions aren’t really a thing these days but (possibly) getting stuck between both spots is a stigma that could follow/pigeonhole Bertans; needs to improve defensively if he wants to earn big minutes in 2017-18
