@spurs123 @Chris32 @aespurs I do have to agree, with the people that were taken after him, Joseph has underperformed SIGNIFICANTLY. Maybe he can develop more, maybe he can't. I'm not saying that he's the worst mistake that the spurs have made in the draft, but right now he's top 5 in recent years

@spurs123 That probably is the better trade, the unfortunate thing is that while the Hornets are under NBA control they will constantly be in "Money-Saving Mode". If they keep Kaman and just let him walk then his contract comes off of their books and saves them over 10 million. If they trade him for RJ they have to keep paying for 3 years. They don't want to do that.
@spurs123 My question is, why would they take on 3 years of RJ and 3 years of Bonner? I don't want it and I'm rooting for the people that signed them to those contracts. Don't get me wrong, I would be all for this version coming to pass.
I like the idea of getting, but like it says in the article, I'm not too crazy about what we would have to give up to get him. Same thing with Josh Howard. Why would I give up a very servicable Danny Green for a guy that chose not join the team in the off-season.
Flynn is someone that I would look at. Unfortunately the only scenario that would be servicable (but not feesable) would be Flynn and Thabeet for Joseph or Anderson and RJ. I know that the consensus is that Houston owes the Spurs for basically giving them Scola, but they don't owe them enough to take back RJ
As much as I like those scenarios I don't see either as a real possiblitiy. If the Spurs FO could trade RJ they would have already. And unfortunately I think Anderson has played his way out of any trade scenario. I could be wrong, I hope I'm wrong, but I think those two guys are with us for the rest of the season.

Well that's a really sad thing. At the beginning of the season it looked like the Spurs had pulled a fast one with how well T.J. was playing with that second unit. Unfortunately now they have to look at other options because as other people have pointed out, Neal, Manu, and Joseph can't be expected to handle PG duties in the playoffs.
One option is promote from within. If memory serves, Justin Dentmon of the Toros was a D-League All-Star. They run the Spurs system in Austin so I don't see why they couldn't give him a shot to fill in. However, I don't think they should trade for a PG. If any trade occurs it should happen for a big man. At this point Pop is so set in his big man rotation that any big man you get doesn't necessarily have to be brought in for big minutes. If anything a 5th big would be for insurance purposes incase of injuries or fouls.
