The San Antonio Spurs training camp roster continues growing as the team announced the signings of Antoine Hood and Gani Lawal today.
Hood, a 6-4 guard from the Air Force Academy, played most recently in the Czech Republic, averaging 16.8 points and 3.9 rebounds during the 2009-10 campaign.
Hood, who is a Air Force Captain, spend some time with the Denver Nuggets after college. His former coach, Jeff Bzdelik, calls him "one of the greatest competitors I've ever been around."
The Spurs picked up Lawal after he was released from the Phoenix Suns. The 6-9 forward has been injury-prone during his time with the Suns. Lawal played 10 games with the Iowa Energy in the D-League, averaging 11.2 points and six rebounds.
The Spurs also announced the release of former UTSA standout guard Devin Gibson.
I say we amnestly jefferson and give leonard a good ol trial by fire. Leonard was rated as a top 3 Nba ready player by most college analysts. If he starts it would be Tony, Manu, Kawhi, Duncan and Splitter or Blair right? Do we need a sparkplug scorer at the 3 spot? Mabey neal or Anderson off the bench could be that sparkplug off of the bench? We need Leonard for his rebounding and defence not for his scoring abilities(ALTHOUGH his shot is looking way better since his off season training)
Sportscaster "The spurs have Nando, Manu, Kawhi, Gani, and Tiago on the floor right now".............
nando is not here right now or else we wouldnt have signed TJ. Ford
I bet they are looking at gani for the 5 spot, cause we all know how bad we need a 5 right now. He's like 6'8" so he fits into the spurs bear jr. role. If only we had a british 7' dying to come play in the states. Then if we did have a young british 7 footer then mabey it would benifit him to get a year or two with duncan as a mentor. I dunno the spurs already are gonna be pretty big with Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. Leonard is proportioned like an action figure of an alien. Its super funny if you look at the pics of him and joseph holding up there jerseys next to eachother after the draft and look at the difference in hand size. I'm just babbleing now.......
Picking up crumbs? The spurs are contented with d-league players. It is bruited that the mavs are releasing fernandez and brewer. What about it spurs? They showed interest to both players in the past. At least both are young.
i agree we should go after fernandez he can shoot and play defense wouldnt mind amnesty jefferson for him
