    I’ve been told this is complete BS.

    Adams is great. I'm not getting the idea that OKC wants him 'available.'

    Maybe you'd know more than I do. I just see this as Amico throwing shit at the wall. I simply don't see the benefit in making a promise to a player in the middle of this draft. You just don't know who will fall. Like sure, maybe you promise to take Samanic at 19. But what if Doumbouya falls? What if Hunter is still hanging around at 9, and Washington is willing to make a deal? You let the chips fall where they may, or you jump in and make an aggressive move to secure a guy, but you don't lock yourself into a player when there's so much mystery available.

    Now at 29, that's a different story. That first-round contract might be the only thing that kept someone like Okeke, Roby or Horton-Tucker in the draft this year. Almost all of the toss-up guys decided to stay in this year, and promises could have had something to do with it. Something about Kabengele really does feel like he's on PATFO's radar in the same vein that Metu was. If they're trying to smoke-screen their interest in someone, he's a really good candidate. It's really easy to overlook him or think he needed to go back to school. But he has a lot of raw talent and should be a long-term fit for the Spurs whether they play big or small going forward.
    this scenario has happened before..........a few drafts ago the spurs made a promise to draft a virgina player but passed on him for another player who slipped.......the players aunt went to twitter to call out popovich & rc for lying

    The Spurs don't have cap space to do this. They are over the cap now and are over for next year.

    I think the point is to move a pick along with some of the redundant players for an upgrade. Especially if the Spurs draft Okeke with 29, I'm all for offering Beli, Bertans and the 2020 first for Bogdanovic on an S&T. Or Beli and 29 for Crowder. Or maybe Forbes and 29 for Valentine.

    Wasn’t it the Batum draft when they knew Portland was going to hose them, and so they sent out a fax to every team that they were open to trading their pick? It seemed like a transparent feint at the time.

    Offer him directly to Leonard?

    As in some kind of butler/chore boy for Uncle Dennis?

    I don't think the CBA allows these kind of services tbh

    I truly would only want them to move their picks for a higher pick.

    With that said, if we trade our picks for a vet player, the trade BETTER include Patty Mills. Then I might be okay with it. But obviously it depends on who we get in return.

    He was played off the floor in the playoffs, due to his poor defense in space. Like many NBA bigs, he's a dinosaur looking up at the asteroid that is about to mean his extinction. He really doesn't have a big place in today's game.

    "A coach can't change people," Gregg Popovich said before the Spurs obliterated the Nets on New Year's Eve. "They are who they are. No matter what team you're talking about, a coach can be observant and try to put his team in situations both on and off the court where some of that can develop, some of the camaraderie sorts of things. But you can't change people."

    Spurs fans want Steven Adams but complain about LaMarcus who's not only a better player on a better contract, but also scored 56 points on him

    Do not be surprised when nothing like this happens tbh. Spurs standing pat IMO with perhaps adding a nice player with the MLE (I hope). Hoping Murray and Walker are healthy next season and have developed over the summer personally...

    When has Amico ever been right? Nothing to see except a dude throwing shit at the wall and seeing if it sticks.

    This sounds like standard operating procedure for every team, not news. They need to have a backup plan if the top players on their board are getting plucked too quickly.

    I'm sure they've also explored trading up and have tentative deals arranged for that also.

    this doesn't even work because you need cap space to absorb a contract and Spurs have none

    Meh. Historically, when rumors have surfaced that the Spurs are desperately trying to trade their first round pick, that usually means they've promised to pick a player and they're pretending to shop the pick in hopes of throwing other teams off the trail.
