Is Luka Samanic losing his cool?

The Spurs rookie posted on Twitter about patience after their second scrimmage game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Is the kid referring to the playing time he got in the last two games? Samanic averages five minutes per game in Orlando. He didn’t score a single point either rebound or assisted. The kid also doesn’t have enough touches.

While his fellow rookie Keldon Johnson increasing his minutes every game. His role in the team is getting cleared while Luka Samanic will likely get back to the NBA G League next season.

Luka Samanic who’s been on the radar of the Spurs since a teen is the first international pick they brought to the United States right away after drafted since Tony Parker in 2001. The Spurs picked him in 2019 NBA Draft 19th overall. He’s likely far from his potential to get some minutes with the Spurs next season.

Spurs fans from Twitter show some support to encourage Samanic to work hard to get those minutes he wants.

Control what you can, the best you can. If you put in the work, great stuff will come. The real work when no one is watching is THE KEY. Every day brings another opportunity to confidently improve physically & mentally. from Eric Salinas.

You WILL get your chance, Luka. We are all supporting you. Can’t wait for you to channel that pent up energy on the court. Keep the faith. from Grey 1769.

Lots of spurs fans believe in you, Luka. We can’t wait to see you getting more opportunities. From Lore’n’spurs.

The kid has great skills that need to get honed on the G League rather than burned it on the Spurs bench.
