I've said this before: Tiago isn't worth $10 million/year himself, but the Spurs are $10 million better with him on the roster. With how few quality big men there are, it's going to take at least $9 million to keep him in San Antonio, and he's worth it. There's no player or combination of players in the league on whom we could spend $9 million that would make us better than Splitter.
