Shaun Livingston -- 67, 28, PG: Has regained his potent passing/shooting skills since his knee injury; Manu-like in ways in his offensive form
Spencer Hawes 71, 25, C: Ive always liked him; board banger and has gotten better each year while in NBA
Aaron Brooks -- 6, 29, PG: Mills like in that hes a pest on defense, in your face type; can provide instant offense off the bench in event Spurs cant resign/lose Mills
Greg Oden 7, 26, C: Spurs were interested in him once, maybe again. Could be used as an intimidator if anything; would be interested to know what Spurs think about him now
Jason Smith -- 7, 28, C: Another intimidator who can shoot from 15 but could be prone to injury; hes a big
Thabo Sefolosha: 67, 29, SG: Good defender, passer and I heard Spurs had him high on their list but he was drafted early
** I believe the Spurs need to extend the contracts of Leonard and Belinelli immediately and resign Patty Mills and Boris Diaw. Diaw is a toss-up, again dependent on the Spurs draft selections and free agent shopping. For some reason, I think the Spurs are going to get a surprise in the draft, either on their pick or trade.
I think Oden has proven that he will not regain his form from those three micro facture surgeries. Thabo makes a lot sense on both ends of the court. With Ayres under contract I would not add Smith. I like Brooks on the court but he visits strip clubs too much from what my source says. Hawes would make a lot of sense but I don't think they will have the funds to get him here. Livingston took a while to recover from that horrible knee injury but is looking much more healthy.
