    Lorbek will play for Barcelona in 2011-2012 :

    In any case, the lockout would have made it very hard to sign him this summer. In 2012, he will be 28 years old and a free agent. It will be time for him to decide if he wants to come in the NBA.

    Depending on what we do this year, he might be a good target next summer. If he passes us by next year then theres really no point in discussing him further.

    news from today:

    Regal Barca extends Erazem Lorbek - Jun 24, 2011 (by Eurobasket News)

    Erazem Lorbek (209-F/C-84, college: Michigan St.) will stay with Regal Barca. The Slovenian buy signed a one-year contract extension with the club.
    Erazem Lorbek finished 2010/11 season in style. Lorbek and his Barca won the ACB le with perfect 3-0. They blasted Bilbao in the Finals with two home and one road victory. Lorbek exploded in Game One with 24 points and 7 rebounds, while he also had 9 pts and 5 rebs in Game two, plus 7 pts and 6 rebs in Game Three. Lorbek joined Regal Barca in 2009 from CSKA Moscow. He appeared 40 times in ACB this season averaging 8.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists. He also added 8.5 ppg and 3.7 rpg for 20 Euroleague games.
    Regal Barca signed Chuck Eidson few days ago and extended Pete Mickeal. Alan Anderson and Terence Morris will leave the club.

    I wonder if this is just a coincidence, or if there has already been some conversation with the Spurs.
    maybe that they are not interested this season (b/c they have 4 bigs under contract, not counting Dice), but that they will try 2012?
    (why did he extend for just one year? he is 27 and was very successful in Barcelona. I'm sure they offered more years)
    at 28 it would be the likely last chance. can't tell if he would fit, but I would love to at least see him for one season in the Bonner role with the spurs.

    My gut says he's not a fit and won't see the NBA - just a different sort of game. But not a bad asset to have, regardless.

    He signed, or agreed to sign, this extension a couple of days ago actually.

    Wouldn't be a great idea for Lorbek to leave a gig like Barca at this point. It's kind of encouraging the extension is only for one season, but I won't hold my breath.

    I haven't seen all the Slovenia NT games but I've been disappointed with Lorbek this summer. While he wasn't horrible, he had very little impact and didn't stood out among other player. He was far from the level he had at the 2009 Eurobasket.

    Euroleague update.
    Lorbek is looking pretty good in the first weeks of Euroleague play. still not rebounding much, but averaging 17PPG on absolutely sick 72% FG and 87% 3s. (7-8 attempts). not so good: got to the line two times. in 4 games. guy has as much contact as Adrian Monk.

    He's under contract currently, so not unless there is a buyout.

    He's in the first season of his contract, halfway through, actually. I doubt if anyone EVER has a mid season buyout provision.

    He's not playing in SA anytime soon, if ever.

    AFAIK, Lorbek is in the last year of his contract. There were some talks about an extension but it never happens.

    The team he's playing for is going to be playing well into the playoffs, both in Euroleague(where the first group round will end in a few weeks) and in Spain, where the reg season still has about 3 months left. So, no, he's not coming this year.

    His Wikipedia article says that he's got a buyout to go to the NBA in his third year of the contract, which would be now. If he didn't sign an extension then that means he's available.

    Buyout clauses for such players are usually limited to off seasons. So that the team does not loose valuable assets during championships...

    Lorbek is having a great season, especially in the Euroleague:

    I would say he has been the second best Euroleague big behind Krstic. I would rather have Lorbek than Blair and Bonner.
