Former Spurs second round pick Nemanja Dangubic is currently in San Antonio working out at the Spurs practice facility. This could mean something — like a training camp invite — or nothing at all. It is not unusual for foreign prospects to visit the Spurs and give them a feel for where they stand. Adam Hanga and Davis Bertans also visited during various off-seasons, only to return overseas. A 6'8” forward out of Serbia, Dangubic was drafted 54th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2014 before his rights were traded to the Spurs that night in exchange for the 58th and 60th picks. Ever since then, he has been playing for Crvena zvezda in the Adriatic League, where last season he averaged 7.4 points,
The sun bore down Saturday morning, causing the St. Mary's University students to sweat through their bright blue shirts as they hacked away at overgrown greenery and tilled the hardened soil. Within hours, the Jefferson Community Garden in the Monticello Park Historic District was rejuvenated, pleasing locals who had watched the near Northwest Side garden fall into disrepair in recent years. “This would have taken us a long time,” said Vicki Wright, a nearby resident who's involved in several neighborhood associations. “We love it. They're working very hard.” The restoration was made possible with the help of the roughly two dozen students participating in a citywide day of service organized
Seoul: Last week, Yea Ji-sea packed her life into a Prius and began the long drive home from Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio to Los Angeles. Before starting out, she searched for information on the internet about immigration checkpoints. Instead of taking the shortest route home, she veered a couple hundred miles north to take Interstate 40, which people online advised would be safer. She had served four years in the US Army, but after the South Korean-born soldier was honourably discharged, Yea was left without a valid immigration status. One wrong encounter with law enforcement could mean being deported from the country where she has lived since she was 9. On Friday, Yea learnt she will no
"Paid sick days policies are common-sense solutions to protect the health and safety of people in our communities -- that's why our law passed in Austin and now in San Antonio this week," city council member Greg Casar said in the Statesman. "Ken Paxton keeps pushing the same ridiculous lie that guaranteeing paid sick days for all is the same thing as raising the minimum wage." Thursday, San Antonio recently became the state's second city to enact similar legislation by a 9-2 vote, but many council members expressed reservations. "Paid sick leave is good for business and good for working families," San Antonio City Council member Ron Nirenberg said in the San Antonio Express-News. "It creates
Some tragic news has recently surfaced. Bob Bass, a prominent figure in the NBA as a team executive, has recently passed at the age of 89. Tom Osborne of the first broke the news on his report for My San Antonio. “Bass was hospitalized Aug. 6 after suffering a stroke,” writes Osborne. “On Monday, he returned home to enter hospice care after suffering a second stroke, his granddaughter Blair Bass-Percle said.” Bass had an illustrious career as a team executive that spanned over three decades. His longest stint was with the San Antonio Spurs organization, wherein he spent 15 years. It was during his tenure as general manager that the Spurs drafted one of the greatest centers of all time. This was
A Catholic priest who served in San Antonio for almost 20 years was accused in the Pennsylvania grand jury report released this week of drugging and raping a minor on at least two occasions, sexually abusing the victim's brother and trying to have sex with another victim on a camping trip. Now, the Archdiocese of San Antonio is asking anyone with information about further abuse by Rev. David Connell, who served as a teacher and pastor in San Antonio from 1976 to his death in 1995, to come forward. "The information contained in the Pennsylvania grand jury report is being taken extremely seriously by the Archdiocese," says a statement from church officials released Thursday. "Regarding Rev. Connell's time in San Antonio, there have been no reports to the Archdiocese of San Antonio of misconduct or allegations of abuse from parishioners or students in the Archiocese," the statement continues.
IndyCar is heading back to Texas Motor Speedway in 2019 and likely beyond. The circuit could be adding another race in Texas in the future. A deal has yet to be finalized with TMS, but according to a source, a multi-year arrangement is expected to be announced in the coming weeks. TMS President Eddie Gossage and IndyCar CEO Mark Miles have both expressed optimism in recent weeks that a deal would get done; however there appears to be an intriguing wrinkle in their negotiations. Previously, Gossage's stance was that IndyCar would not race at TMS if it scheduled another race in Texas. According to a source, however, IndyCar has offered a cheaper sanctioning fee and/or made other financial arrangements
With the Austin City Council approving a land lease for a new Austin MLS stadium, influential Judge Nelson Wolff says that there's no support for MLS in San Antonio — and that's possibly good news for the San Antonio Missions (Class AA; Texas League). There is a domino effect associated with the likely move of the Columbus Crew to Austin for the 2019 MLS season, both within the pro-soccer world (as we detail on our sister site, Soccer Stadium Digest, which includes comments from Wolff), as well as the local San Antonio sporting scene. It's no secret influential city officials were behind a potential MLS expansion team and focused energies there. But when it was increasingly clear that San Antonio
