If the San Antonio Spurs were planning on signing Joel Pryzbilla, they missed their chance. According to Slam Online, Pryzbilla has decided to return to Portland to back up LaMarcus Aldridge and Marcus Camby.
"'Ghostface' Przybilla is taking his talents back to Oregon, as he plans to re-sign with the Blazers.
From the Oregonian: “Joel Przybilla was coming back to the Trail Blazers to be a backup center despite the recruiting efforts of the Miami Heat, and repeated phone calls from the Chicago Bulls.
On Wednesday, Przybilla reached an agreement to play the rest of the season for the Blazers providing the 32-year-old can pass a physical on Sunday afternoon in Portland."
This means Kurt Thomas and Joel Pryzbilla may play at the same time. This also means a lot of guys are going to get beat up going in to the paint against Portland.
For the Spurs, another one bites the dust. Not that they were actively pursuing Pryzbilla anyways. After missing out on Kenyon Martin and Chris Kaman, the Spurs seem set on their four man rotation of Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter, DeJuan Blair and Matt Bonner. It's not enough, I think everyone, including the Spurs realize that this won't be enough come playoff time, but I would imagine they're waiting for the trade deadline or for guys like Kaman or Antawn Jamison to get bought out.
Maybe they're trying to bring Antonio McDyess back for the stretch run. What do you think Spurs fans? Should the team trade for a big, wait for one to be bought out or try to coax McDyess out of retirement?
Look McDyess name needs to stop coming up this bad reporting Trevor! Let the man stay retired if the front office hasn't mentioned his name why would you? I do agree with them waiting for Some one to be bought out! That idea I agree with I really hope they don't get sorry Ass Jamison! Anyone else would be better that would be worst than when drew Gooden came over! But we need a Decent Big Man!
I'm not taking anything away from Eric Dawson,but he's a rook, and come playoff time he'll choke so don't sign him for the rest of the season maybe just a 2nd 10-day.As for other bigs The Spurs MUST sign a reliable interior minded veteran big to come of the bench.That's THE ONLY concern that we have besides of course stayin' healthy troughout the way!GOOO SPPUUURRRSSS GOOOOOOO!!!!
