Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich maintains the decision to move Tiago Splitter over the summer was tough in nature due to the relationship involved with the veteran.
“It was very difficult,” Popovich said. “When someone is with you for a while, you get close to them and their family. That’s the business part of the situation. It shows its ugly head once in a while.
“So if we wanted to add the talent that we added then we had to do something because you can’t pay everybody. I think Tiago being here in Atlanta is a perfect fit for both parties.”
