More Spurs offseason nuggets:
  • The team is still undecided on whether newly acquired player David Lee will play PF or C, but his lead by example nature has already had an effect on this young squad.
  • Another newly acquired player, Tyrus Thomas, is a candidate to be waived before even making it to training camp.
  • Several of the organizational higher-ups were seen scouting the Orlando Summer League. Rumor has it they are chasing Guards and Bigs.
  • Both Karasev(knee) and Inglis(foot) have experienced no reported setbacks. Inglis is almost fully healed and on the Summer League Roster while Sergey is targeting a September return. He wishes to play for the Russian National Team in Eurobasket but the team is still undecided on this.

With the Spurs choosing to sit out the first round of Free Agency that is all we have for today.

The Spurs recently brought in a cadre of Guards for a private workout and came away impressed. The lineup consisted of Buddy Hield, Jamal Murray, Kris Dunn, Dejounte Murray, Malachi Richardson, and Denzel Valentine. Each, in their own way, could address the team's stated desires to improve in shooting, play-making and scoring.

With three picks in the lottery this year, the Spurs plan to make selections at all three spots but are keeping their options open to trade down or potentially for a player already under contract.

Team President VA Gentleman is choosing this time to take a week long vacation to re-charge the batteries but another workout for Forwards and Bigs has already been scheduled. Unfortunately, both Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram have rejected invitations at this time. Expect a full recap next week and a Free Agent primer to follow.

Welcome the two newest additions to the Spurs family, Jamal Murray and Dragan Bender!



At #4, the team selected Jamal Murray, a sweet shooting combo guard from Kentucky. Murray averaged over 20ppg as a true freshman last season and was one of the most prolific 3-point shooters in all of Division 1. A versatile scorer that can also handle the ball and distribute a bit, Jamal will pair with Emmanuel Mudiay and Jeremy Lin to form one of the more exciting back-courts in the league next season.



Following a brief trade up (7 to 6) the team selected the intriguing Euro big, Dragan Bender. Standing 7'1" but with plus quicks, fluidity and a solid shooting stroke, Dragan is the epitome of the modern day "4." Management had previous experience with his older brother and believe Dragan has top notch character and commitment to winning. As one of the youngest players in the NBA now, the organization plans to bring him along slowly and let his body mature but expect big things in future years.

The Spurs are happy to announce the signings of F Jae Crowder(Happy 26th Birthday, Jae!) and C Marcin Gortat. After mostly sitting out Free Agency in recent years, there was a push from ownership to add some veteranosity to the roster and really make a run at the playoffs. Having so few roster holes and oodles of cap allowed them to aggressively spend on the wing and big man market.

GM VA_Gentleman on the signings:"After finishing 28th in GP and dead last in Minutes Played last year we were focusing most of our attention on durable, steady vets. We had two empty spots in our starting lineup and were happy to fill the gaps with such high-character people and players. By our metrics we've added enough scoring punch to put us squarely in the race for the 8th seed in a highly competitive Western Conference while still maintaining our youth. Today was a good day for the future of this Franchise."

Breaking news: In a bizarre incident, probably over a gambling debt, Conference rival Bobby Portis broke into the team's practice facility yesterday and sucker punched star Forward Nikola Mirotic, breaking his face in the process. Mirotic is reported to miss 4-6 weeks, while rookie Lauri Markkanen is expected to get increased minutes in his absence. Only in America.

Season in Review: The Spurs came into the 2017-2018 season with optimism but expectations were tempered early when starting PG Jeremy Lin was again lost for the season in the very first game. Go to option Nikola Mirotic had already been sidelined from a locker room brouhaha and management was forced to make a script change to their goals for the season. The focus shifted to one of growth for a roster full of young-lings, un-established in the league. Baby steps were made by young guards Jeremy Lamb and Timothe Luwawu and big man Kevon Looney, rookie and backup PG Jawun Evans gained valuable experience. Others like one-time franchise hope Emmanuel Mudiay and newcomer Willy Hernangomez regressed, much to the coaching staff's dismay. But all was not lost, as a triad of 20 year-old's established themselves as the foundation of the team moving into 2018 and beyond. Sweet shooting forward Lauri Markkanen re-set franchise 3point records en route to a first-team all rookie nod. Hard nosed wing OG Anunoby knocked down shots and provided stellar individual defense, cementing himself in the starting lineup as the season wore on. Do everything Guard Jamal Murray, The Blue Arrow, was an honorable mention for most improved player and won team MVP while earning the Team Captain role.



Offseason Preview
Armed with max cap space and the #7 slot in the lottery, the Front Office was well positioned to add the 2 starters needed to propel the Spurs back into the playoffs. However, a franchise altering moment occurred when a lucky bounce on May 15th rocketed the team up to the #2 pick. The celebration was on. With a chance to add a franchise level talent to it's core of young starters, expectations have taken off and there is a real buzz in the fan base and community. The early speculation has all been Ayton and Doncic. "Shaq with a shot" or "The greatest European prospect of All-Time." The scouting staff is hard at work but many analysts feel it is a win-win no matter the result. The pro portion of scouts has already established a wish list of free agents and with all starters remaining under contract, the GM can be prudent in Free Agency. A big man and point guard depth headline the needs of the squad but are subject to shift pending the draft.

It was an exciting draft night here in San Antone. There was plenty of celebrating in the war room when they selected G Luka Doncic at #2 overall. The slick Slovenian is expected to play a major role right away and is a perfect fit in between Murray and Anunoby.



There was also business to go with pleasure as the team executed 2 draft night trades, acquiring a new starting center and moving back into the 2nd round to select B10 POY Keita Bates-Diop. With the deal for Wes Matthews, Free Agency is over before it began but the roster is in good shape and the team is well positioned to make a run at the big fish next summer.



All in all a great night for the franchise. A league pass darling for sure but will it translate to on-court success? Tune in next time to find out. And if you'll excuse us, we have a, uhh, business meeting with Ms. Poterbin.
