    wouldn't mind adding him to the team, but he's not the solution at the starting spot

    Can't shoot.

    That's all, I guess.

    One of my favourite. Young, athletic, good on defense and so bad on shooting and on offense in general that his market value is an all time low...so we could afford him for a long term deal (3/4 years) at a good price (4 x year?) with the goal of develop and improve his offensive skills in the perspective of a new and larger next contract...in few words, treat him like a well paid fresh draft pick (as a 23 years old next could be his first year out of college). Only problem is he's restricted...and the Pels could decide to match any offer we make as rfa (if they have extended him the qualifying offer)...'cause after all they only have Ingram coming from a bad injury as small forward...

    aren't we the best in the business for fixing it?

    Pelicans most likely will match any decent deal for him. I like taking a flyer on this guy because he is still young and a defender. His shooting issues can be fixed if he is willing to work and put into initial positions that aren’t too overwhelming for him offensively

    Apparently not. Last season we had a starting five that couldn't hit a buthtub.

    Seems like the Spurs have tried to get this guy for years with no luck.

    He will have to be acquired on the cheap because he's a project. He can't shoot.

    The Spurs are probably the best at fixing shooting- but you don't always succeed and Johnson has never shown any skill at all. If cheap- I'd take a flyer given he's young

    For some of you to act like this guy has two left feet offensively is laughable. He is a hard nose defender that we can make serviceable at the very least on offense. Trade Beli for him...

    Would consider if cheap enough. Not a first choice, IMO.

    A draft bust looking for redemption. Not going anywhere unless he gets into a good development program.

    Things I like about him:

    1) Already a good individual defender.

    2) Has the potential to be a great individual defender. Perfect body style to defend long threes. (Probably defends Nephew as well as anyone in the league, for example.)

    3) He's a bulk three-point shooter, so there are no issue in terms of the quickness or height of his release.

    4) Still young.

    5) Might be had for cheap.



    Things I don't like:

    1) Consistently terrible shooting the ball (~29% career three-point shooter and no signs of improvement).

    2) Low offensive basketball IQ. Struggles with shoot/pass/dribble decisions as much as any player in the league.

    3) Defensive basketball IQ middling in terms of reading and fitting into team schemes.

    Our defense hasnt been the issue the last few years, it's our offense which sputters especially when we are on the road.

    He reminds me of Corey Brewer. The Spurs chased that dude for years. It seems like he played on every team, but the Spurs. But the Spurs could never get a trade for him to go through and they could never convince him to come when he was a free agent. I think Stanley Johnson will always be the guy the Spurs chase, but he never comes.

    Not as good as the timvp blinks, but last year the Spurs were
    4th in offensive rating,
    13th in defensive rating.

    That matches my eye test, with or without blinks.

    Is there a stat for offensive rating on the road?

    Spurs were 7th in Off Rtg, 19th in D Rtg last season.

    Where do you see 13th in defensive rating? The Spurs were 20th according to NBA.com, 19th according to basketball-reference and tied for 18th according to ESPN, tbh.

    Is there a stat for offensive rating on the road?
    Road games only, Spurs had the 6th best offense and 25th best defense. So, yeah, I'm not sure I can buy the opinion that the team's road offense was the problem, IMO.
