Spurs waive Corey Maggette, which he has said would mark the end of his 15-year NBA career.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) October 15, 2013
I can see Maggette being with the Spurs in some other capacity. Maybe he'll be groomed for a different position within the organization
Fells could become something Kawhi like.He is an athlete who has a 7ft + wing span and ball handling skills at 6'6". He is also quick and seems to have worked on his shot. I think Pop really sees something, so he might stick for 6 months. It cost very little and he can be dropped in Dec. if they wish to pick someone up, assuming we don't send Nando away long before. The future could be brighter than we might have guessed post TD and Manu if one of the high potential players can develop along with Kawhi. St Charles, and Bertrans, plus a Kabongo type might make TS or Baynes adequate at C. I really hope Fells sticks.
End of the day fellas... SAS starts reg season with a 14 or 15 man roster? If 15 then who makes the cut?
Still watching the wire for Hollis Thompson and James Nunnally...I think I'd even take JaMychel Green over Fells right now. But I wouldnt trip if Fells made it. He has showed some promise
I like that Fells is still in the group. To me his hustle makes him an intriguing prospect, although I do think we are going in with 14 players under contract.
BurkartBrandon that dream sounds more like a nightmare. Stephen Jackson??? not at chance. It bodes better for the spurs to leave a spot open in case of a trade, buyout, or waiver.
Magette reciprocated the Spurs' interest about five years too late. If he can't dominate preseason scrubs, he's going to be a liability in real NBA games. Spurs have been digging through the NBA scrapheap over the past couple of months, as if Magette, Young, or freakin' Mike Bibby would pan out. I actually had a weird dream last night that the Spurs forgave Stephen Jackson and resigned him.
I like the energy that Fells brings, he can get to the rim. I didn't see him hit a three in the Phoenix game, but he looked pretty good on defense. Hopefully he has a chance to make the roster or at least be thrown into the D-League
@JeffProjectSpurs 14 then some 10 day guys for a while is my guess
@Spursfan66 it says Kabongo will reportedly join the Toros, according to Wojnarowski, on this article. I guess we'll have to wait and see if Nwaelele joins them too, when and if he gets cut (which I'm assuming he probably will).
