The news coming out of New York on Tuesday was so depressing, it got me thinking about really anything besides stubborn, idiotic owners like Dan Gilbert and Robert Sarver wanting a hard cap in the new CBA.
At the same time, a nice, healthy debate sparked on Project Spurs over James Anderson and Kawhi Leonard. Several readers threw out several different names for the San Antonio Spurs to target this offseason. There has definitely been a sense of urgency for Spurs fans about getting this team, specifically Tim Duncan, another title in the twilight of his career since the Spurs got swept by the Suns in the 2nd round of the playoffs in 2009. At the same time, it's critical to think about the future. Many fans have called for the Spurs to find a way to sign Nene or Tyson Chandler, but signing either of those two would be make or break moves because it would cripple their salary cap room for at least the next two years when you have both Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili off their current contracts and Tony Parker and Richard Jefferson in the final years of their deals.
I agree with past columns that suggest the Spurs sign someone like Aaron Gray, but only to a one year deal. The best move they can make is keeping an eye on both the 2012 free agent class as well as the 2012 draft class.
