San Antonio Spurs 2009 draftee Nando de Colo has reportedly signed (via Spanish language site defensacentral.com) a preliminary contract with Spanish squad Real Madrid for next season.

With Valencia, he is averaging 13.1 points, 1.6 steals, 2.9 assists, 3.1 rebounds, shooting 47% from the field, and 36% from the three-point line in 26.8 minutes.

Currently, he is playing with Valencia (his current contract ends next month) and will finish out the season with the team, however, for Spurs fans this means more of a wait to see if he will ever decide to come to the NBA and wear black and silver.

With the Spurs needing some help at the point guard position, not having De Colo come in to make the team, and develop his game and integration into the Spurs' system would be a set back.

Regardless, Spurs fans will be able to see De Colo play this summer as he, along with Spurs' Tony Parker and Boris Diaw, will represent France at the 2012 Olympics. However, he may be prepping for the French national team which might keep him out of playing for the Spurs' 2012 Summer League team.
