    Spurs should go hard after Bradley Beal, Washington probably going all tank and rebuild with Wall out for a year and how mass they are, they will want expiring contracts and future assets, spurs should trade Bertans, Bellinelli, Forbes, Walker, #19, #29, Milutinov rights and a future first...
    Sounds good

    Spurs need a player on the roster like a Kevin Willis, Mario Ellie, or JR Reid. A tough guy.

    Good one. The Spurs need a dirty/tough player on their roster. Even a Will Perdue type. A thug even ala Stephen Jackson type.

    Young would be a nice fit though, as long as everybody shoots the 3 well in the starting line up, which is a huge question mark. I wouldn't be mad if we got him. Air Alamo is basically some guy from reddit with a website who reads spurstalk. That site has 0 sources

    I'm inclined to believe that LJ Ellis is correct in the assumption that we'll be having another go with the pretty much the same roster. It's not likely that PATFO are going to, nor should that want to, make any huge changes to the roster just 1 year removed from #2 departing. Corporate knowledge/culture has to be re-solidified if we want to make a run at a le any time soon, and I believe the pieces for that are already on the roster.

    Once Murray returns, we should have no problems competing with any back court in the NBA. Most people seem to believe DJ will return to PG and White will fill in the SG spot. I think DJ is better suited at the 2 and White should be running the team. White has already proven to have the IQ to run a team, he just needs a little more seasoning. White is a constant threat from anywhere on the floor. He's shown he can pull up for 3 off the dribble, run a pick and roll with efficiency, as well as having excellent court vision. His finishes at the rim leave something to be desired but I believe he can work on that.

    I'm not trying to take anything away from DJ, I know he's been working hard and we all see that he's working on his 3 point shot. But I can't picture DJ hitting 3s off the dribble, yet, at the same efficiency White would be able to if the situation called for it. DJ would be better suited as a spot up 3pt shooter. I don't think Murray needs the ball in his hands to be efficient on the offensive end of the court, his elite hustle will get points and assist on the board, as will his defense. Obviously he would still have ball handling duties, but the bulk of that needs to go to White. If DJ and White can learn to co-exist on the court together we'll be dangerous again.

    Another thing that has been on my mind is Demar Derozan's roll on this team. His lack of a 3pt shot hurts the starting line up too much, it doesn't leave enough room for LA to work. Watching Demar in the playoffs pass up on open 3s and drive into the teeth of the defense only to kick out to a shooter who was being defended was frustrating, we became so predictable. I know it seems crazy and it probably would never happen, but having Demar come off the bench I think would work wonders for this team. DDR would feast on opposing teams 2nd units if we surround him shooters like Bertans, Forbes, Mills, and Marco. It would open up the floor up the floor for LA and take pressure off of DJ and Derrick in regards to trying to get Demar his shots.

    So who would start in place of Demar? I'd go with Lonnie Walker, maybe not right away, but something to work toward. Lonnie already passes the eye test and if left open, I think he'll be a knock down 3pt shooter. It is apparent Walker has all the skills to be an all-star in this league. It would also accelerate his growth which we desperately need from him.

    Starting PG: White
    Starting SG: Murray
    Starting SF: Walker
    Starting PF: Gay
    Starting C: LA

    That would give us 4 guys in starting line up who can all knock down 3s as well as make plays off the dribble. Leaving LA as our 2pt specialist on the starting unit and Demar as the 2pt specialist on the 2nd unit. The defensive implications of this starting line-up are obvious.

    If KD departs from Golden State, and barring a situation where the Lakers somehow get Kawhi and AD, I think the door is wide open for our team to make another run. GO SPURS GO

    If Walker can stay healthy and keep grinding away I think he will make a huge impact on this team.

    Why the would any player want to be starting with that black hole? Bust your ass for 82 games and then watch that bearded dribble away possessions in the playoffs?

    I think they've got something like $120M committed, so I don't know how they think they're going to pull it off, but if he actually wanted to play there, he should probably do it.

    Frank Ntilikana reportedly wants a trade from the Knicks.
    Like, doesn't everybody?

    I'd easily take him for #29, if they'd do the deal. He was a major prospect in 2017, is a 6'6"X7'0" PG who can guard multiple positions, is still not quite 21, and is on a rookie deal with team control for two more years. That's a reclamation/development project worth taking on. His career seems to be on a near identical track to Mudiay, who, coincidentally bumped him out of NY's rotation last year. Mudiay was the #7 overall pick that Denver threw in the towel with after two + seasons. Ntilikina was the #8 overall pick that NY seems to be throwing in the towel with after two seasons.

    Denver got the corpse of Devin Harris, plus an exchange of second rounders in a three way trade when they dumped Mudiay.

    The post says he (the player) wants a trade, not sure if the Knicks have gotten to the point they are ready to move on from him.

    Ntilikina has been amazingly bad. I know it's the Knicks, and I know that stats don't always tell the whole story. But his numbers are off the charts bad. To the point that it's fair to say that he's been the worst rotation player in the league. (Don't count guys who only get spot minutes.) It's hard to see past numbers that bad. Maybe he'd look better on another team. Maybe. But not enough better to spend a first round pick on him

    Mudiay was just as horrible, and actually put up good numbers this past season for NY, 14.8p/3.9a/3.3r on 45% shooting. Look at his earlier numbers. They sucked as bad as Ntilikina's. PGs sometimes need some seasoning.

    One hidden stat was that as a rookie, Ntilikina had the best PnR PPP against (0.65) in the league, just ahead of Jrue Holiday. He's an ELITE PnR defender in a PnR league. An article I read also said that he may have another inch to grow, taking him up to 6'7".
