Its not like he is behind someone here so wants an opportunity, the only caveat on this is Pop would have a big say so if he really wants 100% control that may lure RC otherwise I see no reason why he would want to go.

Good point Kager!

Pop would NOT let RC leave! At the same token I believe RC would not want to leave Pop & this very special Spurs Org. :tumb

If you look at any NBA staff out there, it’s most likely you’ll see former Spurs personnel somewhere in their management alignment. You know, we’ve often talked about in previous threads when Duncan decides to retire, what would Pop do? The same can be said of RC Buford. I hate to say this but when Duncan does decide to hang up the sneakers, and that decision is in the not so distant future, the Spurs organization could quite possibly have a vacuum at the top.
Very well put alh1020!

True and could not said it better!

TimmyD is a huge reason and Pop that is the glue to RC and Spurs Org. Pop is everything! And Pop will NOT let RC leave IMO.
