The San Antonio Spurs continue to workout players for the upcoming NBA Draft. We told you Wednesday about Syracuse sharpshooter James Sutherland's impending workout with the Western Conference Champs. Now we're finding out the Spurs recently brought in another wing, Tim Hardaway, Jr., for a workout.
Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com reported earlier this month that Spurs interviewed Hardaway, Jr. at the Chicago Draft Combine and brought him in the following week for a workout. Hardaway, Jr. is 6'6" and can shoot the lights out. According to ESPN's Chad Ford, the Michigan two guard lit up the combine and as a result is looking more and more like a first round pick as opposed to a mid-late second round pick he was projected as a month ago. He's currently ranked number 32 on Ford's Big Board and 31 on DraftExpress'.no comments

With the NBA’s pre-draft combine over and the draft coming up late next month, the San Antonio Spurs will begin working out potential draft candidates.
With the Spurs being of the best perimeter shooting teams in the league, it’s no surprise that they’ll be bringing in Syracuse sharpshooter James Southerland in for a workout and visit.
Southerland is a 6-8 swingman who played all four years at Syracuse and ended his career on a Final Four run. While he’s a bit one dimensional offensively, he’s an efficient shooter with range beyond the NBA three-point line.no comments
With apologies to every other player on the San Antonio Spurs roster, every fan and even Gregg Popovich, this Finals run isn't about them. It's not even about Tony Parker, who has been brilliant this postseason, especially against the Memphis Grizzlies. No this run to the Finals is about Tim Duncan and the quest to get him ring number five.
The idea that it's about Duncan more than everyone else became clear after the Spurs held off the Memphis Grizzlies Monday night to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2007. The evidence that this one came in several forms. First there was Tony Parker's postgame comments, where he admitted that he told Duncan he was going to do everything he could to get the Spurs another crack at the title after last year's devastating loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder (H/T to ESPN's J.A. Adande).no comments
San Antonio Spurs fans are still beaming with pride over the silver and black's sweep of the Grizzlies and stamping their ticket for a return trip to the NBA Finals. This will mark the franchise's fifth time in the Finals where San Antonio is 4-0.
After the team was crowned the Western Conference Champs, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Matt Bonner spoke on making it to the Finals with our friends over at News 4 San Antonio.
Here is a boat-load of videos for Spurs fans to feast on and relive the magic one more time.
