Caron Butler is looking to be bought out also, but I would assume Miami will snag him.
1 week, 4 days ago on A rundown of the NBA's buyout market
@minus aren't we a contender?
@Mike ProjectSpurs Not to mention coming off a double OT back-back and the Nyets had been off for 3 days. Danny Green played 46 against the Wizards and then 35 against the Nyets, all coming shortly off injury. Belinelli also had extended minutes both games.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Limited Spurs suffer more injuries in loss to Nets
I would love if we could get Noah! It would be a long shot, but he seems to be discontent with the Deng trade and the apparent rebuild that is imminent. Gibson could be a good pick up, but I would rather add Baynes than De Colo at this point. We have more adding Gibson would just push Baynes further down the bench and our injuries at the wing has shown we could use the depth De Colo provides.
1 month ago on Spurs interested in trade with Bulls?
@jojo707 I think with our plethora of "bigs" that Baynes might have been the better option to waive. I think Baynes has hit his ceiling with us, and I doubt we resign him next year. We probably won't resign De Colo either, but he gives us depth at the wing that we need at the moment.
A lot of people have a love affair with Baynes, but I think in the future Thomas has more upside.

@MOlsenUtah, by claiming him off waivers are now responsible for his contract, the Spurs are off the hook.I think he was more of a "project" for the future. The team is filled with bigs, so it didn't surprise me in the least that a move was made.
@DifferentVSTheSame @spursfan80 All I was saying about corner 3's is that he already is pretty good at the 3 shot, and even decent from around the arch. Kawhi can create, but mostly for himself. Bellineli and Diaw should be added to your creators list.

Not sure how much I like the shoes, but white shoes don't stay white with me.... I can never have nice things. ;)

I agree his defense is already there, but it seems like Kawhi had already developed a pretty good outside shot (at least from the corner). He's been working on going to the basket more and his all around offensive game is falling in place. The crazy thing is as good as he already is, he can probably still improve in all facets of his game! The only thing that concerns me is that when he has the ball he seems to play one-one more than looking for someone with a better shot. Now, do they let him keep doing this to develop his game and build his confidence, or reign him in to play more "team ball"? I am sure PATFO want to keep him happy to make sure he resigns with the team.
Eh, he's probably right... ;-)
4 months, 1 week ago on 'Sir Charles' Slams the Spurs... Again
I honestly thought there was a chance we would have kept Hill and traded Parker, at least at the time it seemed reasonable (Pop playing Hill in the playoffs instead of Parker was an indication). I will say the trade shocked me, but I was never upset about the trade. After it was announced I tried to find as much info on Kawhi as I could and saw there was enough there that it could be a good gamble. As far as trades go, I think it was probably one of the most fair trades that I can think of. Talent wise, we probably got the upper hand on the trade, but sending George to
his hometown, a young team in need of some veteran guidance was a good move for the Pacers as well.
4 months, 1 week ago on Ginobili 'really angry' when Spurs traded for Kawhi Leonard
Pop was freaking smart with his role for Splitter for now. He knew he was capable of scoring from his international play, but had him fill into a role he wasn't as familiar with and develop new skills, and buy into a team system. Duncan is under contract this year with an option for the next year. Splitter is posed to fill in Duncan's place on the team (he won't be Duncan, but who would?). After Duncan retires I have a feeling Splitter will be able to fill up his scoring stats again!
4 months, 1 week ago on Splitter: Popovich didn't want me to be a scorer
We really won't know much about the Spur's chances or anyone else's until we see the injury list at the playoffs... If the wrong player goes down for ANY team their season is pretty much over.
4 months, 1 week ago on Tony Parker gives his West teams to watch
@MarkCubanisaDouche I get your feelings about Howard, but since he was cut he really isn't a concern unless he proves he's worthy of being on the team. However, I think your statement of running Manu and Marco ragged has something to do with a backup SF though. Someone is going to have to give Kawhi a break and they seem like the most likely at this point (although Diaw is good in certain matchups). Not arguing that we don't need a more reliable backup PG, but just feel that a backup SF could help keep Manu and Marco (M&M?) fresh.

@gruelingslate @spursfan80 Same here man, get used to it... ;)
@gruelingslate Yeah... like Jackson never smoked weed....
@merkin Hey, at least Manu isn't our brittlest-boned veteran anymore!
For some reason they make Kawhi look pink to me...
