Open Thread: Predicting the Spurs staring line-up (again)

Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via There is now a bevy of information of which to glean. Before the draft and the signing of contracts began, it looked as if the Spurs might make big trade moves involving one or both of DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge. Personally, I created a Spurs starting line-up - based on trade rumors - that now resembles more of a fantasy NBA team. Here’s what we know: First, no Spurs were traded and DeMar DeRozan has opted into the final year of his contract. Second, the Spurs drafted Devin Vassell and Tre Jones. Third, the Spurs have signed...

Open Thread: Not everyone from the shortened season will return to the Spurs

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/ Who is on the chopping block? Here was the Spurs 2019-2020 roster: Dejounte Murray has the longest contract set to expire in 2024. Keldon Johnson and Luka Samanic are under contract until 2023 with the team holding options after this season. Lonnie Walker IV is also under a team option until 2022. Elder statesmen DeMar DeRozan, LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gay, and Patty Mills have one more year on their contracts, as does Derrick White. Trey Lyles, Chimezie Metu, and Tyler Zeller have non-guaranteed contracts. Bryn Forbes, Marco...

The Spurs could be starting a two-year rebuild

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports The Spurs don’t have to rush to fix everything this offseason. For the better part of two and a half decades, the Spurs offseasons have had a metronome-like quality. We knew they were going to try to find diamonds in the rough in the late first round of the draft, take a swing on an international prospect in the second round, use their mid-level exception to fill a hole in free agency and then find someone literally out of nowhere. No trades, very few splashy free agency signings (hello LaMarcus Aldridge), not many bad contracts handed out...

Open Thread: Predicting the Spurs 2021 starting line-up

Photos by Darren Carroll/NBAE via Who makes your ideal San Antonio tip-off squad? The leaves are falling, the earth is cooling, and the pandemic version of NBA free agency is in full swing. Free agency affords opportunities. But it can also shut doors. I’m not going to lie, before the trade window opened up I was comfortable with the idea of trading DeMar DeRozan for Kyle Kuzma and Danny Green and LaMarcus Aldridge for the #2 pick and Andrew Wiggins. If both of those trades had happened, I imagined a starting line-up of Dejounte Murray, Derrick White, Andrew Wiggins, Kyle Kuzma, and...

Since the 2020 offseason started, rumors continue to swirl around DeMar DeRozan, LaMarcus Aldridge, and their future with the San Antonio Spurs.

The more trade rumors the Spurs are involved in, the better

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The Spurs seem finally ready to pick a direction and take risks to rebuild their roster, which is a welcomed development. Rumors are flying about the Spurs potentially entertaining offers, if not outright shopping their veterans. LaMarcus Aldridge, DeMar DeRozan and even Patty Mills have been involved in reports about potential trades in recent days, and while nothing appears imminent, things could get serious in the near future. The immediate reaction to seeing so much reported activity by the typically low profile Spurs is surprise. We are not used to...

Rumor: The Lakers are interested in DeMar DeRozan for Kyle Kuzma, Danny Green

Photo by Harry How/ The high volume of Spurs trade rumors means something is up. The 2020 NBA Draft is less than a week away, and trade rumors are swirling around the Spurs like never before. First, there was the rumor of LaMarcus Aldridge being sent to the Warriors for the 2nd overall pick and a cap-filler player. While logic didn’t seem to support that idea at the time, it’s still out there (see below), so some credence must still be granted. The latest big rumor comes from Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer in his Mock Draft. While predicting the Spurs would draft Seddiq Bey if they...

Open Thread: The Spurs trading DeMar DeRozan to the Lakers could be beneficial for both teams

Photo by Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via With no solid basketball news, pundits are speculating, presupposing, and even doing a little wishful thinking. Let’s be clear, this is not advocating for sending DeMar DeRozan to Los Angeles. That said, with so many trade rumors in the grinder, even the strange ones are starting to make a little sense. Would anyone have envisioned a trade that sends LaMarcus Aldridge to Golden State? Yet, here we are. Gran Afseth posted a trade scenario sending DeRozan to the Lakers, which at first glance made me cringe, but after reading the rationale, I...

NBA Rumors: Warriors Could Explore Trading No. 2 Pick For LaMarcus Aldridge And No. 11 Pick

After finishing the season as one of the worst teams in the Western Conference, the Golden State Warriors have successfully acquired the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. However, though they haven’t ruled out the possibility of picking a young and talented prospect in the upcoming draft, most people are expecting the Warriors to use their lottery selection as the main trade chip to add another All-Star caliber player this offseason. One of the players who is currently being linked to Golden State is LaMarcus Aldridge of the San Antonio Spurs. In a recent episode of The Lowe Post...

NBA Rumors: Spurs Could Trade LaMarcus Aldridge And Keldon Johnson For Kevin Love, Per ‘Bleacher Report’

Despite missing the playoffs last season, the San Antonio Spurs still haven’t shown strong indication that they are already planning to undergo a full-scale rebuild this offseason. With Coach Gregg Popovich at the helm, there remains a huge possibility that, instead of focusing on the development of their young players, the Spurs will try to build a more competitive roster that would increase their chances of returning to the postseason next year. One of the potential trade targets for the Spurs this fall is All-Star power forward Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to Grant...
