This is a smart move. Whatever team wants him will have to do a sign and trade with us. The front office isn't going to just let a player like Gary walk for nothing. Worst case, we get a draft pick out of him. They've made some really good moves this summer. I know Jeff hasn't been the favorit of everyone, but I'm excited about him. We needed some more rebs and someone that can help protect them rim when Tim goes to the bench. We don't need scoring from him. Keep in mind when Danny ferry came back to help out in the front office, he told them to give green a shot. We just brought in the assist coach to the pacers and my guess is he told the spurs everything about this guy. He maybe another gem like green.

is this really even worth reporting?? If your going to write about Matt Bonner, please write to tell us he's been traded or waived.

I agree. I stop reading his post.....a guy that thinks u can trade a restricted free agent doesn't no much about basketball... Just because someone played in europe doesn't mean they're a euro player....is green? Neal? Maybe Blair because he played in russia? Maybe that's close enough to just call him a euro player..... Do us a big favor, read the CBA so you understand what moves the spurs can really make, stop dreaming of these XBOX moves. We're all tired of coming across your re-posts...

PROJECT SPURS...please do a right up, so all of the follows understand how NBA basketball works......people. Draft is June 28th, free agent singing is July 1st. So... You can not trade James Anderson or danny green to move up in the draft. You can't trade a restricted free agent..the spurs elected not to pick up james anderson's contract, so how could they trade him. If it's the team option, the spurs can move them, if the player has the option, the spurs can not trade them..
Stop dreaming of these NBA XBOX trades.....true spurs fans love the writes ups on project spurs.com and good feedback....read up on the CBA and rules, so yoU can have a full understanding on what a realistic move is....

Also, Duncan isn't going to sign for less than 14 million......he wants another ring, but he needs to make money as well.......it's a business...not a charity
I'm sorry, I've been ready post after post of "rtesoro440".
First: James Anderson- we tried trading; no one what's him for a little over a million and why would they if the can just sign him after July 1st for less. And we CAN'T trade him!
Second: the bulls are thinking of trading Deng for the 7th pick. Do you think splitter, bonner, Blair, Anderson (can't trade again) is worth the second overall? NO... We don't have a player worth a top five pick. Maybe Leonard in another year. Tony is 30, no team in there right mind would give up a top five for a vet.
Third: Splitter, I love how fans have turned on him. Are you trying to blamme the WCF on him? A guy that hasn't had a summer with the team yet! His pick'en roll is great. A year or two chip will have him hitting 12 footers. Give him time. He's already in the top 10 centers in the NBA. Keep in mind, Manu and capt jack were the only ones that showed up for the WCF. I put the lose on Tony. Great players overcome things. Tony folded on us. We need a backup point! Everyone keeps talking about bigs, bigs......heat only had bosh! And they beat OKC. we need a long SG and a good PG. I agree a big will help, but it's not the problem. We need another SG that will go at the rim when needed. Green is to slow off the dribble.
Final: most likely the spurs won't trade into the first round. We don't have the money. First round picks get min 1-4 million depending on the draft position. Seond round picks don't. Spurs Are looking for a free agent that is battle tested. Tim is only got 1 or 2 more season and they want to get him 1 more ring.
Blair needs to go..via trade for another player or a future pick..I wish they would trade bonner for a new ball boy, but I guess that wasn't part of the new CBA. Maybe just second round or cash. Just get his 3 million out of SA. PLEASE!
Sign Adam.... This kid looks like a future star roll player....I really like how fast and athletic he is...chip can teach him how to shoot better. Out of all the guys we have overseas, he looks NBA ready and the most promising.......ready for summer league!
Time to rebuild! Trade tony Parker, bonner, Blair and green. Get in the draft. Lots of PF's and centers this year. Tony failed us. He wanted this to be his team and he hasn't shown up at all. Looks like it should have been Manu's team! One more year of capt. Jacks contract and we have more money to spend. Let's take the next two years to get younger and longer. Love Duncan, but it's time to rebuild our inside and back court. Leonard has been the only highlight of the last three games. This kid is our future!

I hope spurs players read this! It's the western conf. Finels! You played like it was a normal game in the middle of the season. I've watch almost every game of the spurs in the duncan era and this is one of the first times I've seen them play like this in the playoffs. I felt like their heads were not in it. It's like a boxing match, get punched and knock down in the first round, choose to get up and fight or don't get back up. We did get back up last night!
I give the thunder credit, they played great. Remember game 2 we did the same thing to the thunder, but they choose to get back up and fought until the end. We needed that last night.
Hopefully they show up for game 4 and they start making better passes and stop taking fade aways like Kobe.
1 year, 9 months ago on Thunder prove Spurs are mortal with strong defensive performance | June
The spurs do this all the time. They aren't going to work out the guys their going to draft. They work out the guys that they think may get over looked in the draft of guys that will be a 2nd round and probably will get waived some where down the road. This is how they find the Danny green's. It's smart. Come draft day they FO has already down their home work.

This move is just to have people for tonight and tomorrow.
You'll see alot of cory and patty. Anderson and now Byars. I think Spurs do a great job of searching in places that NBA teams over look. This guy may just need a shot. Look at Green....He just needed a shot and some time on the court.
The Spurs have to plan for the future. We may not be able to Sign Green or Neal. If Capt. Jack doesn't show up in the playoff's he's probably gone. Most likely the Spurs are going to go after Nicko ( blazers). They need to make another move during draft night. They need one of these young PF/C. They need to make room for Roy (Pacers) he's up next year and he loves Timmy. I think Tim could get him to move.

I don't know why Hickson would go to GS over the spurs, unless the spurs never contacted him. He would be a better fit with the spurs and would have a chance to win, unless he just wants money and doesn't care about winning. I don't think the spurs are trying to get Hickson or Turiaf. They seem to have something in mind that none of us will ever get... The Capt. Jack move didn't just happen. The spurs wanted him when he was with the Bucks, but the bucks didn't want RJ back. It always comes down to the money.. The spurs have to have a PG becasue of the stretch that's coming up. They can give Tim the game off in the middle of the back-back-back and still have a good shot to win. Playoffs come around you only seem to play three bigs anyways. Duncan,Splitter and Bonner will probably play most of those.
Unless a good big comes up in the next day or so, I don't see them signing anyone other than a PG. Saves money on taxes.

We should have sent dyc contract instead of tj. I know it was only1.5 mil more, but that would have given us more this season. Pick up ronny, he can reb and play def.
This was a GREAT move. Let's look at it.
We get a scorer back. Mid-range and 3' (RJ wasn't a mid-range guy). He's longer and will be able to defend Durant and James.
As for the first round pick, JAMES ANDERSON. That's on I need to say about that. Just because you have one doesn't mean you always pick the right guy. We also sent TJ Fords Million dollar contract with RJ. So we free up cap for this year. Now we can sign someone other than a D-player this year. Great move by the FO. We're not done, they know we need a big this year. Next year Lorbeck will be a spur. I see the spurs waiting for the right player to be cut and they'll go get him. Sitting back and waiting is how our FO play's it. The Warriors had to take Jackson in that deal and most likely they were planning on a buyout with thim and cutting him. We just cleared up room and a lot of it for 12-13 & 14-15 to start our rebuilding. We now have money to bring some of these guys over that are ready and go get some young free agents.
Don't think we're out of the draft yet. Blair's contract is up next year, I see the spurs trading him on draft night and he's worth a 12-17th overall draft pick. It'll depend on which team wants him.
Great job by our FO once again. These guys are always on their "A" Game.
I can remember when everyone was calling Danny Green "trash", our FO stayed with him and look at his now. One of our future pieces.

I've been a die hard fan most of my life. When has any spur or spurs fan's ever cared about what someone has said? Amar'e can say whatever he wants. At the end of the day spurs fans no we have tons of talent. Year after year we're always the team to beat. That's something to be said for in it's self. Great job FO for putting the right talent in place to make what us real fans call a TEAM! Which wins rings. Take your talents to south beach, LA or NY, we'll bring a Talented TEAM.....year after year!

Kaman isn't going to happen. They don't want Jefferson's two year contract. We need to move on from Kaman. We can't bring him over unless they take Jefferson.
Jefferson's on the roster this year. The only trade value we have is Green, Neal, Blair, Corey, Anderson and our draft pick rights. Green and Neal have the most value and are the future of the spurs. The rest can be moved. I would try and keep blair for the rest of the season and than trade him to move up in the draft next year. His contract is coming up and he'll think he's worth more than he really is. Spurs have been lucky with his knees at this point. Let's not roll the dice to much with that, move him while the value is up.
2 years ago on Kaman still available, price has dropped apparently | March
No way! Keep looking. We have two great pick'n roll guys, we just need a guy that can reb and play D. We don't need a head case. RJ may not be worth the 9 Million, but at least he's knocking down the 3's when we need them. We may be able to get a big that is at the end of someones bench, but at this point we won't get much out of Anderson.
The bucks are the only team out there that have a load of bigs. Bonner isn't going anywhere, Blair needs to go! The ball only seems to go one way with this guys, he turns the ball over more than our PG's. Let's ship him off with Anderson and rights to "De Colo". Get a guy like Sanders and a first Rd pick. This year's draft is going to be full of PF/C's. De Colo is getting older and we don't seem to be thinking about bring him over. If so, we'd be in the same place we're in today with Anderson. No Playing time..
