After a string of picks categorized as draft and stash, the San Antonio Spurs have excelled in recent years turning back end of the first round guys in to rotation players. Tiago Splitter I suppose was a bit of both, then there was George Hill, then DeJuan Blair who was actually a second round pick. More recently Cory Joseph has shown he's at least a back up caliber point guard. This year their draft position will be no different. Now that the college season is over for all but four teams, we may be getting an idea of who the Spurs might be targeting.
According to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, general manager R.C. Buford himself was in town last month presumably to have a look at freshman center Steven Adams (H/T to Dan McCarney for the link).no comments
