After seeing the San Antonio Spurs top free agent targets sign with other teams, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and R.C. Buford are still left with an empty roster spot that they can use to improve the team however they see fit. With the buyout market seemingly dwindling by the day, it's time to look the remaining buyout candidates, and how they would fit in a silver and black uniform.
Metta World Peace, forward
2013-14 averages: 13.4 minutes, 4.8 points, 2.0 rebounds, 39.7 FG%
Advanced: 11.7 PER, 94 OffRtg, 107 DefRtg, 0.2 WS, .027 WS/48
The artist formerly known as Ron Artest has yet to find a new home after being bought out by the Knicks, and his options are becoming bleak. The 34-year-old forward has been hampered by injuries this year, but is still a massive body on the floor who could manage to help any contender. Sadly, the only "contender" knocking at his door are the Detroit Pistons, who are 3 games out of the 8th seed in the East.
The book on World Peace is simple; He doesn't shoot well, and he isn't mobile enough to be the defender he once was. But in a limited role off the bench, he could still be a good presence.no comments
