One more season in Spain for Neto
By Nick Borges
The Utah Jazz will have a revamped roster this upcoming season and half the players could be new to team. One player who won't be on the squad is Brazilian point guard Raul Neto, the No. 47 selection in the 2013 NBA draft.
"Go to the NBA is a dream I want to accomplish. I think we took the first step, but it is something that cannot be in a hurry," Neto told Basketeria.com.br, according to the Deseret News. "I have to wait for the right moment."
Neto's contract with Spain's Lagun Aro GBC expires after the 2013-14 season, which will allow him to be free to sign with the Jazz next summer. The Jazz already have enough youngsters on the team, so stashing him away for one season is a good idea.
"They are not interested in me this year yet," Neto said. "So, it is almost certain that I will not now (play in the NBA next season)."
