Were the Spurs to let Neal and free-agent forward DeJuan Blair go, plus exercise their amnesty option on the $3.945 owed forward Matt Bonner, it is possible — in theory at least — for the team to free more than $5 million in cap room with which to continue the pursuit of free agents.
Multiple reports have linked the Spurs to Andrei Kirilenko, a 32-year-old small forward who opted out of $10.2 million in Minnesota in search of a lengthier deal.
A report on Hoopsworld.com on Thursday indicated the Spurs had also been in contact with Anthony Morrow, a sharp-shooting guard who split last season between Atlanta and Dallas and who has piqued their interest in the past.
