    Sekou has been my guy for a few months now tbh. I'd be thrilled if the Spurs move up to get him, even better if they can offload a loser like Beli or Forbes as well...

    Or Mills but that's a real long shot.

    One trade idea I've tinkered with involving the Heat would be sending DD to them in exchange for Ryan Anderson, the 13 plus the Wayne Ellington trade exception. Not sure if either team would do that deal.

    It's interesting that the Spurs were able to get a workout with Sekou considering there's no chance he could drop to 19. Since he doesn't have much time for workouts (he was playing in Europe until recently), to get Sekou in for a workout, the Spurs would need to convince his agent that they had a chance to move up into his range (~6-13).

    Making it even more interesting is his agent is Bouna Ndiaye, the same agent who has gone the extra mile to try to get his clients on the Spurs. It seems like RC and co. trust him enough to let him know about possible trades they wouldn't tell other agents.

    Hmmm...
    The most obvious pick is ATL #10. Much more of a longshot would be #6, if PHO wants Ball, and we have something that PATFO would be willing to move and that N.O. would want.

    You can't actually trade a trade exception. Pick 13 is also cutting it REAL close, the outside range of when Sekou will be picked.

    If the spurs traded up for a certain player (sekou) does that mean he'd play next season?

    spurs would really have to move up for sekou. i can't see him being available past the 9th pick (washington).

    i'm just trying to think of what team would be a possible trade partner to move up with and i really can only think of atlanta but i don't know what they would take from us and what we would have to take back in exchange.

    Derozan + Bertans + 19th for Bazemore & the 6th tbh...ATL has shooting to mask Derozan (Young, Huerter, Collins) and thats a franchise always looking for ways to fill seats.....Bazemore is a terrible contract but cheaper than Derozan and a better fit tbh....

    spurs: pick 8 + pick 10 + Tyler Jonhson + Josh or Warren
    hawks: pick 6 + Bertans + Josh or Warren
    Suns : pick 19 + Demar Derozan

    Well, right now they have 8, 10, and 17. They seem to be in full-on rebuild mode, so I doubt they'd be interested in DD or LMA. Their cap sheet is pretty clean, as is ours. We'd likely swap 10/19 with them and maybe one of our youngsters for one of theirs.

    i'd be fine with this (forbes comes to mind, if they'd have him).

    They'd want more than Forbes to move up 9 spots. Think: one of White, DM, or LW IV. THIS would be exactly why you draft guards three years in a row with your first round pick, and why you always pick BPA. When the time comes, you swap what you have for what you need.

    Dude that contract is amazing for SA, he’s fully off the books after next season and fits well this year to help keep SA in the playoffs. It would free up all of the DeRozan money on the books after this season (28M) - that is massive for flexibility

    He hid Mahinmi and not only hid Batum but he concocted an issue with Batum's heart to help him fall in the draft. Almost worked, tbh. There were also a couple summer league invites he directed to the Spurs.

    That would actually be a good and realistic trade. Even gives Spurs enough room to sign Bogdanovic

    Only 1 Spurs player but all of them were in rumors to land on the Spurs at some point, so I see the pattern. After the recent drama having an agent who prefers your franchise would be a plus as well
