At the end of the day, I don't see the spurs adding any new player during the offseason thats going to make much of a difference now. The Belinelli signing was their big splurge. Maybe they make a move closer to the trade deadline if there is an injury, but I don't buy the rumors about Oden, Mo or Ariza.
I agree, but a solid long, defensive back up for Leonard isn't a necessity... Along with a back up pg? I know we have Green, but Oden is not coming, maybe we get Mo when Miami gets Greg. But long athletic, defensive minded bodies are never something I'd like to be short on. With all the big small forwards and small ball,he'd be nice. That's why they were going after AK47. Also seems like bigs are never our strong suit... Pg and wing players.
