    As Sean commented, Zollins is still playing at a 100mph out there. It will take some time to let the game slow down on him. At this point he’s not the answer to Poeltl, yet. I don’t know if that game was enough to make a determination as Zollins has still a lot to work on.

    Poeltl does a lot that Zollins cannot do, yet. What Poeltl lacks on on-man defense, he is great at help-defense. I only wish he doesn’t overhelp sometimes and leaves his guy for (most of the time) open dunks. Good to great rebounder. Also Poeltl is starting to develop a great offense, getting more aggressive. I hope it continues. He still needs to work on his freethrow a lot obviously. But he has the form and should get better. Great at setting the pnr and cuts well to the rim . I wish he could finish more with a dunk (it is a higher percentage and also demoralizing to the opponent). And he’s starting to post more, and drive to the basket, albeit still settling with a floater instead of banging it inside with authority, moving his defender and dunking (oh I just wish he does). Poeltl has great court vision, but I wish he works more on his footworks inside, a couple of up and down fakes, and dunk with authority. Getting back to the point, Poeltl still does a lot that Zollins cannot do, yet. Zollins already had problem with Sengun last night, granted Sengun is very crafty at lowpost. I wish Zollins can do more, because Poeltl could be very valuable to contenders who like to add a very capable big. And easily could get us a FRP, and maybe pave way for that elusive tier 1. He is young and cheap for what he could do. I was a strong critic, but I would hate Poeltl go without suitable replacement, someone who’s not going to get bullied in the middle.

    Zach looks too slow to be PF and frankly to slow to be super effective as center
    But we will see

    the most important thing Collins has to show is rim protection. We need that off the bench more than anything. He still needs to get in shape so I hope his lateral mobility gets a lot better, but I don't see him as a 4. He's a 5

    Guy hasn't played NBA basketball in like 2 years. I know he got some warm-up in the GLeague, but let's not be too quick to judge in his first 14 minutes of action.

    Starting off against Houston is definitely a good way to build confidence.

    I’m over here laughing�� Most of you really don’t know this but Collins can play defense well! Give him some time to get his legs back and he will improve exponentially. Shooting, passing, footwork Collins is light years ahead of poodle! He will be our best big once healthy! Book it!!

    Yup, I too analyzed his entire career based off 10 minutes of playing time and 5 minutes of garbage time.

    Dump the bum.

    Meh so did Softridge.

    I'm sure Zollins can ball.
    Issue will be staying healthy and on the court.

    The main thing I noticed about Zollins, that I didn’t expect, is how sure handed he is. Unusually good hands. Good court vision, too, looking for assist possibilities. Team oriented, that is. For his first time on the floor in forever, he looked good.

    I think you overreact like lots do on the inter web to what I stated. Zach is talented. He did not move anything like I remember from his Balzer days.
    To be viable he needs to move better than one days so far. We will see.

    Considering how long he was out, don't expect anything before the next season.
    It's always more difficult for bigs to look good when they return from injuries, not to mention switching teams also plays a big role. And it's not like we're good on defense.

    I'm not optimistic because of his injury history, but come next season he'll definitely be better than Eubanks, which isn't that hard, but still.

    So is the tank derailed or was the Rockets game just a one game aberration by a team who's tank is better then the Spurs incompetence?

    Tank or not this team is bad not terrible like the Rockets so we are still lottery bound. The question is will we be more likely to get a top 4 pick vs a 6 to 11 pick?

    Hopefully we continue to lose while gaining continuity….. we’ll get something good out of the draft hopefully.

    We are so much better than the Rockets.
    This Spurs team has lost so many close games this season.
    It would only take adding one really good player to switch those around and make this a playoff roster.

    I think everyone except DJM has to be on the table as a possible trade if any of them can get us that player we need.

    Definitely the latter. Spurs are gonna around and win just enough games to miss out on a top-5 pick yet again. Especially if Zollins continues to play well. Sucks.

    Of the 12 drawn slots over the past 3 drafts with the new flat odds, 7 teams outside the 4 jumped into the 4. #7 has jumped in for all 3 drafts.

    Zollins has the swagger that Poeltl sometimes lacks. I just hope his legs could get back their mobility, because he could play some 4 depends on the compe ion.

    Yeah, the Magic's natural pick last year was fifth. The eighth pick they had came from Chicago in the Vuc trade.

    I keep reading posts hoping Collins can play the 4 sometimes and I just don't see it.
    I hope I'm wrong. That would be awesome.
    I'm excited to see what he brings to the team but I don't see the lateral mobility required to guard 4s much less smaller players after a switch.
    He's a 5 all the day.
