A dose of realism about Tom Abercrombie's NBA prospects from someone in the know.

Talk about the Sky City Breakers' forward attracting interest from overseas has returned following Abercrombie's form in the Australian Basketball League this season.

But San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown says there are very few spots up for grabs in the NBA.

Brown says there are only 30 teams who have 12 to 14 players each and a lot of players have long careers.

He says Abercrombie has the athleticism to match NBA players but believes his entire skill package is still evolving.
