    Derrick is actually a good shooter. Just needs confidence with his 3s.

    This, and Dejounte is a better shooter than Giannis.

    The Spurs aren’t losing because they can’t shoot. They lost this year because of atrocious guard/wing play ... both lack of being able to get off clean shots (tighter close outs in playoffs) and horrible defense.

    Defense from our guards and wings (besides Derrick) is why we lost so much last year. Pop made remarks about how defensively handicapped we were several times during the season. Pop hasnt questioned the roster make up like that probably EVER. i definitely expect that to be addressed this offseason. Thats why I dont understand why people want another center in the draft. We already have one thats adequate and it doesnt address us being "handicapped" as Pop said. We were playing Mill at the SG spot for gods sake.

    Well, at the end of the day, the winner is the one who puts the ball in the hoop more times than the other team.

    Lowry and Gasol have been inconsistent.

    Siakam and Van Vleet have stepped up!

    We surely need to trade Murray before he's exposed as a bust and has no trade value...

    Brogdon is a free agent. His contract price this season was $1.5 million. It was the last year of his 3yr rookie deal. His contract date is July 29.

    Brogdon stats, this season, 15.6 ppg, 4.5 rebs, 3.2 assts, 3pt% of 42.6, eFG% of 57.5, FT% of 92.8, in 28.6 min/gm and 64 games.

    He has become an expensive player. Other teams will be able to offer him more $, since the Spurs have done things like tie up $12.5 million to Mills, etc.

    It's hard to say; his final season in college he was shooting 5 3's a game, many off the dribble and shot 40% from 3. In the NBA and G-League, he's actually been about average.

    I do wander if Pop's gotten in his head about taking those pull ups and not settling for 3's in general.

    Assuming that the rotation is;

    Murray, Forbes, DDR, Gay, LMA
    Mills, White, Beli, Bertans, Poeltl

    They need everyone, save for Poeltl to take 3's, Murray, DDR and LMA all have to shoot them- having 4 players not take 3's in today's NBA is crazy.

    Even if it's only a 1.5 3's per game from DDR and Aldridge, that's incremental improvement.

    Spurs can't keep finishing at the bottom in attempts, what good is it to go 10-25 from 3 when the other team shoots 8 more 3's and hits them at only a slightly worse clip?

    All winning Spurs teams had 3pt shooters capable of hitting daggers. It's no longer true.

    It's happened to the Spurs multiple times. In particular all the times they got backdoor swept. The shooters go cold because the paint is packed to stop the dribble penetration of TP and they can't develop a rhythm.

    In 3pt attempts the Bucks were 2nd to the Rockets, but the Bucks % was only average, 16th of the 30 teams. So while they shot a lot they were no better than average at hitting them.

    10 legit NBA players in a rotation isn't good enough? There are playoff teams in this conference that get really iffy after the 7th or 8th man.

    White being the 6th man should help bolster the bench, Murray returning should help the starting unit defend, the potential closing lineup of Murray, White, DDR, Gay/Bertans, and LMA could be really good. Improved defense and hopefully more commitment to taking 3's to help modernize the offense.

    I think this team could be really good next year, especially with teams like Houston and OKC looking iffy.
