SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The San Antonio Spurs have taken French forward Livio Jean-Charles with the No. 28 overall pick in the NBA draft.
The 6-foot-9, 217-pound Jean-Charles played for Villeurbanne, which is co-owned by Spurs point guard Tony Parker.
The pick continues a trend for San Antonio, which has selected international players such as Parker, Manu Ginobili (Argentina) and Tiago Splitter (Brazil) in recent drafts.
Tim Duncan is 37 and Ginobili is a free agent who turns 36 next month, but both are expected back. The Spurs have reached the conference finals the past two seasons and no major roster changes are expected.
