Celtics and Spurs

Celtics Trade
Marcus Smart
Jared Sullinger

Spurs Trade
Patty Mills
Boris Diaw
2016 1st Round Pick

Spurs get their Future PG and future PF while The celtics can get some veterans that can mentor the young bucks.

15 Nov 2015 19:15:02
Joke, wright?! Danny Ainge is the best GM in the NBA, he will NEVER make this trade.

15 Nov 2015 23:31:29
So the Celtics send the better players on both positions and gain a very late draft pick?
Yeah, right.

16 Nov 2015 05:06:53
Ainge is not the best GM in the L, but he's definitely good enough to know he's getting ripped off in this deal.

16 Nov 2015 09:02:12
Celtics don't need another Pick! Smart and Sully have a bright future - Mills and Diaw not. And Danny Ainge is the best GM - look at the trades he made. all the nets picks. awesome.

16 Nov 2015 13:00:11
Yeah, best GM. Bunch of picks that have turned into average players, no superstar deal and the C's are a .500 team.

16 Nov 2015 14:16:17
He's wasted some picks on player like rosier and young who are just going back and fourth between the d league. The Thomas trade and the nets trade was a good one.

16 Nov 2015 14:56:50
How did he waste those pics? Rozier has 10 games under his belt. Young has 1 season. How are you able to determine that Rozier is a bust already? Makes no sense. They weren't lottery picks. pretty certain they weren't lottery picks because they need more than a week to develop.

15 Nov 2015 10:15:31
Pelicans/ spurs

Pelicans get Danny green second round pick

Spurs get eric gordon.

15 Nov 2015 12:22:28
Danny Green > Eric Gordon.

Pels are in bad enough shape as it is. You can keep Green.

02 Nov 2015 16:15:04
Spurs and jazz

Spurs get trey burke and Rodney hood

Jazz get Danny green, Ray McCallum and a second round pick.

02 Nov 2015 13:58:46
Spurs and clippers

It kills me to do this but

Spurs get j. j Redick

Clippers get Danny green.

02 Nov 2015 14:18:24
Spurs would throw in a second round pick.

02 Nov 2015 14:32:57
I would still take Danny green over redick.

02 Nov 2015 15:12:06
Trade green or let ginobili start.

02 Nov 2015 15:23:01
Let him start.

02 Nov 2015 22:23:46
JJ Redick has literally not even a fraction of the defensive impact that Danny Green does, making the deal a travesty for the Spurs.

03 Nov 2015 00:42:48
^thats a main reason why.

28 Oct 2015 18:00:10
Deadline blockbuster.

I don't think Lamarcus Aldridge is a great fit in San Antonio so deadline deal

Spurs get Kevin Durant (with extension) and Serge Ibaka

Thunder get Kawhi Leonard and Lamarcus Aldridge

Pf. T. Duncan
Sf. K. Durant
C. S. Ibaka
Sg. D. Green
Pg. T. Parker
6m. D. West
7. M. Ginobili
8. B. Diaw
9. P. Mills
10. K. Anderson

Pf. L. Aldridge
Sf. K. Leonard
C. E. Kanter
Sg. D. Waiters
Pg. R. Westbrook
6m. S. Adams
7. C. Payne
8. A. Morrow
9. K. Singler
10. M. McGary

Both teams address concerns and remain top teams of the west.

28 Oct 2015 18:25:31
Player for player value is probably fair. The biggest problem is that Durant WONT sign an extension, it would cost him a ton of money, and it just doesn't make sense. Saying that, would you trade two allstars with 4-5 years left on their cheap deals for a borderline all star (but probably never going to be an all star) and Durant with less than one guaranteed year? I wouldn't.

I also think Aldridge is a good fit in SA. Unless his ego goes crazy, I think his play style fits what they do great. And I've never seen much that would make me think his ego would be a problem.

28 Oct 2015 21:25:38
Well this deal would only happen if Durant agrees. Buys into Pops system and goes to Texas where he played college. and win rings for his legacy.

28 Oct 2015 21:49:30
Parker, Ginobili, Duncan became who they are because of the culture and system in San Antonio. Kawhi does it now. I don't think he would be this good playing for other team. IMO, individually, Aldridge is a great player but would also fit with this team and become a great team player.

28 Oct 2015 23:26:27
Why do you say he is a bad fit? Literally every analyst and fan says it's a perfect fit. And echoing what USA said and a little more, the Spurs have zero interest in trading either of them.

20 Oct 2015 21:20:55
Spurs, sixers

Spurs get Christian wood

Sixers get 2nd round pick.

21 Oct 2015 13:54:31
Why? Sixers have an abundance of 2nd rounders. And the Spurs had the chance to bring Wood in since he was an undrafted FA.

I think Wood makes the Sixers and Furkal gets cut. That guy just cannot play. He reminds me of an untalented Marc Iavaronni. And that guy wasn't barely talented at all.

21 Oct 2015 15:23:12
Phillrich: Love the iavaroni reference.

21 Oct 2015 18:29:54
Hey, I can go Manny Leeks, LeRoy Ellis, Toby Kimball and the extremely unremarkable Dale Schlueter too.

(Schlueter is best known for being an original Trailblazer)

20 Oct 2015 20:50:23

SPURS - trey burke

JAZZ - O. J. Mayo, Ray McCallum

BUCKS - J. Fredette and 2 second round picks 1 from spurs and 1 from jazz

Spurs get burke better play maker and use mills for offense

Jazz get a vet in mayo a guy who could bring some offense for a team desperate to make the playoffs

Bucks get minutes to throw around for their young guys to shine and cap space.

15 Oct 2015 10:47:21

IND get Thompson

ORL get Turner

CLE get Frye and ORL 2nd

This may need some work to add balance but could work for all teams
IND get Thompson to start alongside George and fill a need since West left.
ORL get another young player who has potential to develop alongside this young team and be a defensive presence.
CLE get something for Thompson a Backup for Love who can shoot at a high percentage, the Spurs have shown the value of draft and stash 2nd rounders and ORL's will be a high one so could be a good investment for CLE for the future.

15 Oct 2015 13:06:32
So the magic get a high potential young prospect, for a declining player on a not so good contract and a 2nd rounder? Magic have no business being included in here. They aren't trading enough assets to receive anything.

15 Oct 2015 13:12:51
Not a fan of either team, but Frye would fit in Cleveland better than Thompson, who cannot shoot outside 3-feet from the rim and is by far the most overrated player in years.

15 Oct 2015 14:29:57
Pizza is absolutely right. Magic can't get a high potential guy picked 11th in this years draft for frye and his bad contract and a second.

15 Oct 2015 15:35:10
I agree with Pizza & King.
He's not saying anything about Thompson. What he's saying is there's no way ORL gets M Turner and only gives up Frye who's not even a starter anymore and a 2nd rd pick. Turner is a high ceiling rookie picked #11 this last draft. Way more value in him than all other players mentioned in this trade in my opinion. Turner is a legit PF/C who can step out and shoot and be a good rim protector. that's gold in today's game.

11 Oct 2015 15:48:38
Evan Turner to the Spurs for the rights to Nikola Milutinov

11 Oct 2015 19:59:47
Spurs say no

04 Oct 2015 18:01:35
Spurs roster

Keep Jimmer Fredette spurs would need shooters (Gary Neal type)

Waive bonner give him a team role his 3pt shoot is gone

Keep a eye on christian wood if sixers Waive him sign him quick

Parker, mills, McCallum
Green, Ginobili, Fredette
Leonard, Anderson, Simmons
Aldridge, West, Wood
Duncan, Diaw, Marjanovic

27 Sep 2015 07:42:00

James Young for the draft rights to Nikola Milutinov

27 Sep 2015 09:06:22
Do SAS need or want Young?

27 Sep 2015 21:19:49
Of course SAS would want Young.
But the C's would not want Milutinov for Young.

22 Sep 2015 15:36:44
Duncan,parker and ginobili should retire after this season
Duncan passed the torch to Aldridge

Parker is going to need serious help to finish the season
Ginobili was suppose to retire last season

Waive diaw only 3 mill guaranteed on his 7mill
Package DANNY GREEN and some picks for FURKAN KORKMAZ whoever draft him
That's 38 MILL all together

Sign MIKE CONLEY 16mill
Make a run at AL HARFORD 17-18 MILL


23 Sep 2015 01:56:18
Package Danny green and some late picks for a lottery pick? Won't happen. Conley will get max. Spurs don't have the appeal without that trio, especially given pop is done in a couple years max.

22 Sep 2015 13:52:22

If Bennett clears Waivers

SPURS would try make a deal

put him in the gym and let play as SF as a big body

not sure spurs have the cap to sign him

22 Sep 2015 14:28:25
I think they have the 2.8 exp. not positive on that though but I think Spurs are a great fit

22 Sep 2015 15:08:46
Bennett lost weight this off-season, and played pretty well for Team Canada, but I would be worried he'd get murdered trying to defend mobile SF's.

22 Sep 2015 19:22:11
He is an undersized 4 and playing him at 3 is a bad idea.

22 Sep 2015 22:57:56
I like Bennett going to the 3. K Leonard wasn't a SF until Greg pop made him into one

23 Sep 2015 02:37:14
What was Leonard, a big two? Far easier to switch into a 3 versus a not so quick not so good 4 turning into a 3. He is no where near talented enough to switch

23 Sep 2015 09:03:12
Leonard and Bennett are very different. Bennett is build more like A. Mason meets Big Baby Davis. Most 3 are too quick for him.

13 Sep 2015 05:19:26
76ers Get: Jordan Clarkson, Kyle Anderson

Spurs Get: Tony Wroten

Lakers Get: 2016 1st Round Pick, Robert Covington

13 Sep 2015 06:19:40
Sixers say no. I'm amusing the pick is the lakers own pick returned to them? If so, Covington, wroten, and the pick for Clarkson(Anderson is to slow to ever be a full time contributing player, but all star d-leaguer) is too much. I like Clarkson, but not going to overpay for him.

13 Sep 2015 14:45:15
What teams have a realistic shot at being worse then the Lakers: Sixers, Denver, Minn, Portland, Charlotte, Sacramento, Dallas, Brooklyn, Knicks. IF the Lakers are better then every single one of those teams, the pick is at #10. More realistically, Lakers pick is in the 5-8 range. The same range Jamal Murray is projected. I'll take my chances with Covington and the pick over Clarkson.

13 Sep 2015 15:12:54
Jvong mavs Hornets kings Portland Nets could all be better and probably will

13 Sep 2015 15:23:02
If lakers pick is 5 then they have a realistic shot at keeping it. Lakers are going to be better than sixers Timberwolves and maybe nuggets. I'll wait and see on the other teams I'm thinking about

13 Sep 2015 16:05:35
Sixers pass. That pick next year is the only hope the team has right now if becoming a contender. Maybe the Miami or Okc pick instead. And even that's a maybe for clarkson who hasn't proven himself yet.

13 Sep 2015 16:26:04
Theking: I agree with you. The list I gave were possible, not probable teams the lakersay finish ahead of. I think realistically, Lakers pick is #5 or 6.

13 Sep 2015 16:44:26
Don't forget the lottery to hopefully lakers get that lottery luck again. Of course I know you guys don't want thay

14 Sep 2015 13:42:43
King, are you saying that your expectation as a Lakers fan for this season is that they finish as around the 5-6 worst team then hope the ping pong balls land them in the the top 3?

And is this a switch in philosophy as far as building the Lakers? I thought the Lakers didn't value draft picks and would build through FA.

14 Sep 2015 14:49:42
Philly I'm pretty sure lakers wouldn't want a horrible season and get a top pick. If they get a top pick they have a chance of potentially adding labbisere or Simmons which could be another building block. I don't have much faith in them this year. As long as the youngsters play well I'll be fine and Kobe doesn't get hurt. If they get the pick it wouldn't surprise me if they traded it

14 Sep 2015 15:29:37
They'll still go after free agents regardless

14 Sep 2015 17:08:13
Who would you rather have: Labbisere/Simmons or Clarkson?

14 Sep 2015 23:24:43
I want to see labbisere and Simmons play in college and then I can tell you

15 Sep 2015 14:30:30
Phily I hope you know that I was saying lakers would b very happy in getting their pick back but won't trade anyone to get it. Kupcheak says they don't have time to build through the draft and keep trading players. If they were to get the pick I can see it getting traded.

12 Sep 2015 11:09:45

Spurs get Kelly Olynyk & Perry Jones

Celtics get 2016 1st rd pick & rights to Boban Marjanovic


pg Parker/Mills/McCallum
sg Green/Ginobili/Freddete
sf Leonard/Jones/Anderson
Pf Aldridge/West
ce Duncan/Olynyk/Diaw

12 Sep 2015 14:19:33
Spurs have no room for them. Spurs is already 2-3 deep at every position

12 Sep 2015 15:53:40
Spurs are over salary cap so no trade

09 Sep 2015 10:17:47
Hornets rebuild roster blow-up:

Hornets Receive: Cousins, Covington, Oladipo
Kings Receive: Jefferson, Walker, '17 Hornets 1st round
Magic Receive: Zeller, Kaminsky, Heat '16 1st round, Spurs '16 2nd round via Hornets
76ers Receive: Collison, Frye OKC '16 2nd round via Hornets

Hornets Receive: Andersen, Chalmers, Future 2nd round picks via Miami
Miami Receive: Hairston

Hornets 2016 line-up:
PG: Chalmers/Lin/Roberts
SG: Oladipo/Lamb/Daniels
SF: Kidd-Glichrist/Covington/Williams
PF: Batum/Maxiell/Hansbrough
C: Cousins/Andersen/Hawes

pretty outlandish stuff, but could make sense for each team involved.

09 Sep 2015 12:37:08
What would make you think that the Sixers would take on Nick Collison at age 34 and Channing Fry at age 32?

And what would make you think they'd take those two on at the expense of Covington PLUS the Heat 1st rounder pick?

Just to be clear, if the Sixers were to acquire those contracts it would only be as part of a salary dump and they should receive assets, not trade assets. The Sixers most certainly would release those guys and be stuck with their money on their cap as well as the losing a late 1st rounder only to have a late 2nd rounder to show for it.

09 Sep 2015 13:58:46
Also. Not getting cousins and olidapo for that batch of stuff

09 Sep 2015 16:18:47
Sixers rather have Covington.

11 Sep 2015 23:01:01
Sixers get a starting point guard in Darren collision for Covington and a late 1st, seems pretty fair?

17 Aug 2015 19:14:52
Spurs Get: Tony Wroten

76ers Get: Kyle Anderson

17 Aug 2015 21:27:12
This is another one of those deals I just don't get. Trade a young player for a young player. But Sixers clearly give up the better player with the better numbers but get nothing extra in return. This deal just won't happen.

Kyle Anderson. 2.9 point per game.

18 Aug 2015 01:10:45
Kyle anderson is all potential, wroten peaked already

18 Aug 2015 09:08:35
i actually like this deal.
the Sixers get a point forward that needs an opportunity to play, because he didn't get that in San Antonio. He will be a bench Warmer and talent wasted.
The Spurs get there instant offense guy off the bench at the SG spot.

18 Aug 2015 13:38:36
That's giving up too much for Anderson. I think the Spurs would move him- if they felt so compelled- for a couple second rounders. But I don't think they fell compelled.

18 Aug 2015 16:13:51
Wroten hasn't peaked yet. Still 21 guys. People forget because he's been in the league for three or four season already.

18 Aug 2015 17:03:10
kyle had a great summer league spurs aren't looking to trade him anytime soon

17 Aug 2015 04:03:49

Spurs get Tony Wroten

Sixers get Patty Mills

With the McCallum acquisition, Patty Mills' minutes might be affected. Tony Wroten is a SG who could play the role of a sixth man in San Antonio (when Manu is gone), Pop might improve his turnover per game with ball not stock in his hands

Sixers get a true PG with skills and still young

bash me Sixers fans but this I think is fair





17 Aug 2015 05:33:42
Not going to bash you. Just think it's a trade that doesn't do much for either team.

17 Aug 2015 11:51:17
mills provides the spurs scoring off bench I don't think they trade him

17 Aug 2015 14:47:44
First off Tony wroten is a point guard way before he's a shooting guard. The key word is "shooting" which he can not do.

Second that trade isn't even close to fair or smart. Trade a young point guard for an older below average at best point guard. Yes he's a vet but he also is a below average vet. Trade make zero sense unless Sixers are getting a first rounder in the deal. Probably late first rounder.

17 Aug 2015 16:46:57
Mills has never averaged more than 2 1/2 assists per game. Ever. If I'm trading Wroten, I want a real PG. The Sixers already have a 6ft PG that doesn't create- Canaan. Why give up Wroten for another one?

When did Jimmer get to the Spurs? Love Jimmer.

17 Aug 2015 19:17:57

I know. I thought jimmer would of been awesome with a. Chance to start on the Sixers. A shame we could snatch him up to with the promise of playing time.

12 Aug 2015 21:10:35
76ers next moves:
Brett Brown is turning Sixers into Spurs of the East:
Sixers go totally unconventional to solve pg situation. Sign Brazilian Marcelo Huertas. Huertas is a high energy guy, great shot, decent size at 6'3". Reported earlier today that he wants to come to the nba this season in the right situation. He feels he can help a team now and help mentor a young pg. Sounds like a perfect fit for Philly. They are probably the only team that could guarantee him a great chance to start and pay him decent money. Yes a bit old at 32, but all Philly needs is someone to keep the seat warm and help develop the big guys.
Sixers are still going to land Morris as well.
Pg: Huertas/Wroten
Sg: Stauskas/Thompson
Sf: Covington/Grant
Pf: Noel/Morris
C: Okafor/Noel

13 Aug 2015 06:09:15
Philly is the Spurs of the East? That is laughable. Philly may be good in another few years but nowhere near the Spurs level.

13 Aug 2015 12:31:14's a model the Sixers and Brown(a top spurs assistant for years) are loosely following. Building through the draft and acquiring overseas talent. Hell, I'd be happy with progress and 25-30 wins this year. I thought " is turning" obviously implies that they aren't there yet. Guess not.

13 Aug 2015 13:00:25
No so laughable.

1. The Spurs have won about 60% of their games each and every season since 1990. There is only a single exception, the year they intentionally tanked and won only 20 games. Many would call what they did in 1997 "tanking." The reward for tanking? Tim Duncan.
2. Just a few years before tanking, they drafted a Center who would not be able to play in the NBA for a couple of years. A big defensive presence. While waiting on this guy they won 21 games. They waited for David Robinson.

The Sixers have kind of mirrored that except Hinkie is doing it on steroids. Instead of a single bad year he's going for the hat-trick of bad years.

Hinkie has not had the benefit of getting the very first pick in the draft and taking the easy consensus #1 pick so he's taken the risk of drafting an injured Noel and injured Embiid.

We'll know if it worked in a few years. The Spurs won over 70% of their games the year before tanking for Duncan. They weren't a tear down and rebuild like the current Sixers.

Its not that far of a stretch to try to parallel the path taken by the Spurs and Sixers. Instead of calling it "laughable," maybe try to think it through a bit.

Everyone loves the Spurs now. But they flat out tanked and have been rewarded for it for almost 20 years.

13 Aug 2015 14:39:38
Someone really hates the Spurs right now

13 Aug 2015 15:03:09
I mean you respect the Spurs and what they done(I hope). Kinda looked like hating but I get what your saying

13 Aug 2015 15:12:48
Philly do you know when they start the hgh or drug or steroid testing whatever they call it? I wanna know who gets suspended and what not. Does start this season or next offseason?

13 Aug 2015 15:34:40
Lots of other teams have tanked. Lots of other teams have been building through the draft. Believe it or not, most teams have a player on their roster from over seas.

The T Wolves Have an overseas talent in Rubio. They have been building through the draft and tanked last year. Does that make them the next "Spurs of the West"?

You guys have a lot of young talent, but you have a losing culture, no veteran leadership to show these young players how to be professionals, and you're the front runner every year to get the #1 pick next summer. You're going to start losing these talented young guys one by one as they get to the end of their rookie contracts and it'll be revolving door until your fan base demands Hinkie gets fired.

13 Aug 2015 15:34:58
I don't hate the Spurs. They're a very professional organization. I was responding to the Magic fan above.

The Spurs started this run by tanking. That's the point. People beat on the Sixers for their course of action but have great admiration for the Spurs (now) without understanding what they did. You can't have it both ways- although I'm in the camp that Hinkie is over doing it.

13 Aug 2015 15:37:34
The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association announced today that blood testing for Human Growth Hormone (HGH) will commence under the league's anti-drug program, effective with the 2015-16 NBA season.

As part of the collective bargaining negotiations in 2011, the NBA and the Players Association agreed to a process for determining how HGH blood testing would be implemented in the NBA. With that process now completed, beginning with the start of 2015 NBA training camps, all NBA players will be subject to three random, unannounced HGH tests annually (two in-season, one off-season), and players will also be subject to reasonable cause testing for HGH.

If a player tests positive for HGH, he will be suspended 20 games for his first violation and 45 games for his second violation, and he will be dismissed and disqualified from the NBA for his third violation.

13 Aug 2015 15:43:46
I think most people understand at the very minimum why a team would tank, the current system incentivizes it for bad teams. If things aren't going well during the season and you figure out that there's no way to be competitive, I don't fault a team for tanking.

The problem I have with the 76ers is that's their strategy before preseason every year! Everyone knows that they intentionally did not put together a roster this summer to compete, same as last year. They traded away the reigning rookie of the year in his 2nd season. The only knock on MCW was he can't shoot. Everyone knows that's the one skill that can be easily taught to a young player (look at Blake Griffin). I would have a lot more respect for your team if they started game 1 each year with the intent to win as many games as possible instead of the other way around.

13 Aug 2015 16:29:51
The Sixers do not have a losing culture. Brown is very, very good about that.

But you're right about losing the young players. That's why I thought the Sixers would add a vet PG and keep Thompson.

13 Aug 2015 17:40:02
Im not knocking Coach Brown. I have no doubt that he tries to win every game he coaches. But the losing culture comes from the management. We already know that the best case for Philly this year is that they're bad enough to land the #1 pick next summer. The players know that's what management is hoping for. That's why it's a losing culture, not because of Coach Brown.

13 Aug 2015 18:13:20
L O L @Phillyrich thinking Philly's historical losing stretch is similar to the Spurs. Philly won't be good for 20 years. No one in hell wants to go there, and college prospects are so undeveloped coming out after one year now they won't make an impact straight out.

13 Aug 2015 19:28:24
Look, the first year Hinkie tore this thing down. Nobody believes that a roster of Thad Young, Evan Turner, Spenser Hawes, no picks, no cap space, and Doug Collins was a winning formula. Holliday was their only player.

The second year everyone knew he was not going to shoot for playoffs. They had that pick traded and it was lottery protected. I don't really agree with the MCW trade but I understand that he took a shot at a high pick for him. On the plus side, Noel took off offensively when MCW got traded.

However, this year he should have gone more aggressively toward a build up. He got a C, he has a PF, he got a young SG (whether you like him or not), he has young SF in Grant and Covington. He had some bench in Wroten, Thompson (just traded), Simms, plus a couple guys that started last year. All he needed to be a competitive team was a PG. That's it. Then use your picks next year.

He didn't do that. And I agree that's bothersome.

13 Aug 2015 19:47:59

LOL yourself. You can't read.

I'm extremely clear in that the Spurs did not have to go through an extended tear down. They were a consistent winner before tanking for that one season. The Sixers were not and had to go through a complete tear down. The Sixers had no cap space, no draft picks and no talent. That wasn't true of the Spurs.

14 Aug 2015 19:14:12
Phillyrich, jvugy and all sixers fans. just relax with the analogies at this point. You are setting yourselves up for disappointment otherwise. To say Noel took off once MCW was traded. he boosted his ppg like 2 or 3. seeing as MCW leaving left a void of about 15+ points, it really isn't a dramatic increase.

The sixers have Noel, very good defensive potential, however, at his current size, he is not able to guard centers effectively. Additionally, he has zero offensive game.

Okafor is a rookie with very little defensive game, great back to basket offensively, but again, paired with Noel, it doesn't seem like a good match. Neither can shoot from over 10 feet away, leading to a crowded paint.

Embiid, sorry, I think he is done.

Guards. yeah, the sixers like staukakus or however you spell it, but at this point, he isn't a top 20 sg, and I don't see any reason to believe he will be in the next year or two. Perhaps he can become decent and serviceable, but who knows.

The system in theory could work, but Heinkie is just failing at it. He refuses to pick up key free agents. Not studs, but leaders, people that make a team, people that guide winners. It is consistently, we draft, we trade, if you do well, we will sell you for future picks.

The spurs model worked great. The thunder worked great. However, they were CONSTANTLY looking to better themselves, the sixers have gone now 3 years publicly stating "we are tanking" meaning no one wants to play for them. Not now, and not ever. Not until Heinke and the management team are out. Because it is THEY that make the basketball decisions and it is THEY that have created the losing environment.

The team Heinke is far more analogous to, unfortunately, is the clippers. Donald Sterling lost for 20 years, but figured out how to make lots of money doing it. Sorry. Its true

Spurs are lacking of shooting guard, with Manu on his twilight of his carrer he is not expected to play more than 70 games. Stephen Jackson used to be a bad boy but played well under Pop so why not sign Jr Smith

Jr take a paycut to be with another powerhouse

the Spurs-Lakers

Spurs get Robert Sacre

Lakers get 2016 2nd round pick

Spurs add center depth (true center)

Spurs roster/rotation

JR Smith is probably the least likely player in the whole league to sign with the spurs. He's too selfish of a shooter, and he's a very aggressive in personality kind of player. That doesn't really fit with pops system

well SAS signed jimmer

23 Jul 2015 02:38:20
Spurs signed Jimmer Fredette

23 Jul 2015 08:02:11
also, SAS already signed Boban Marjanović so they are not looking for more center depth.

^Until the signing of Jimmer, this is kinda believable.
