Aside from the fact he could probably destroy anyone in kickboxing, (watch out Tim Duncan) Lauvergne also endured lots of hours getting jabbed repeatedly by needles for his latest epic tattoo.
His latest ink features a gladiator fending off a charging lion in front a crowd coupled with the logo of his former European team, Partizan Belgrade’s logo, ripping out of his skin.
Joffrey Lauvergne Contract
The Spurs continue to work to fortify their 2017-18 roster, agreeing to terms Monday with free-agent center Joffrey Lauvergne on a two-year contract, sources confirmed.
The Vertical first reported the news.
Lauvergne, 25, became an unrestricted free agent on Saturday when the Chicago Bulls rescinded their qualifying offer, spurring interest from multiple teams.
San Antonio jumped into the fray, as it is looking to add to its frontcourt after veterans Pau Gasol, David Lee and Dewayne Dedmon all opted out of the final year of their contracts. Lee and Dedmon are drawing interest from multiple teams, according to league sources. Gasol is expected to return to the Spurs on a more team-friendly deal after declining his $16.2 million option to free up cap space for the team.
Lauvergne has averaged 6.1 points and 4.0 rebounds over three NBA seasons, and split time in 2016-17 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Bulls, who added him to their roster in a deal at the trade deadline.

San Antonio Spurs 2017-18 season review: Joffrey Lauvergne
Let’s look back at Joffrey Lauvergne’s season for the San Antonio Spurs.
When the San Antonio Spurs signed Joffrey Lauvergne in the 2017 offseason, he seemed to be the first of two or three backup big men behind LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol to be signed. That never happened, as the Spurs did not acquire another center or power forward, instead opting to use Davis Bertans to stretch the defense and Rudy Gay as an undersized four.
That would mean Lauvergne has his biggest role yet in the NBA, right?
Wrong — at least if fans look at his 9.7 minutes per game, which became a career-low for the Frenchman.
Lauvergne actually played somewhat heavy minutes for a backup center in the first three games: 12, 17 and 16, respectively. Early but it was a trajectory towards his 17.6 minutes per game with the Denver Nuggets in 2015-16.
However, a sprained ankle derailed Lauvergne in the season’s third game. This took him out for three weeks, part of which saw him come back healthy but not receive playing time.
From there, it was a complicated process for Lauvergne to reenter the rotation permanently. Bertans played his way into a regular role, while Gay took over 20 minutes off the bench, in a role next to Aldridge or Gasol to give lineups the shooting that combats the modern-day NBA. Partly due to this, Lauvergne only picked up double-digit minute totals in 21 games after Nov. 14.
There was an outlier amongst these 21 performances, however: the 26 points and 11 rebounds on the final day before the All-Star break, against the Denver Nuggets, when Aldridge was out and the Spurs desperately needed scoring production. Surprisingly, this came from Lauvergne’s scoring total on 12-for-15 shooting. No one saw that coming, and it was by far his best game of the season.
