In hindsight, I guess Pop saw the need for a multi-dimensional 2 guard and power forward that could be utilized in a 7 game series and turned it over to RC to spin his magic. No telling what their plans are for Thompson. The word from the scouts seems to have been that he doesn't have the lateral quickness to defend the perimeter as a small forward. We will just have to wait and see if the Spurs see a possibility in correcting that. Otherwise, I think he goes to Europe or gets dropped entirely.
