Breaking: Spurs Waive Alonzo Gee

The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have waived guard Alonzo Gee. Gee appeared in five games this season, totaling 2 points, 3 rebounds and 2 blocks in 17 minutes. Gee was signed by the Spurs as a free agent on March 29, 2010 and was later assigned to the Austin Toros of the NBA Development League on April 8, 2010.
The roster now stands at 12.

What are we doing? Who do we get to fill the 13th spot?


A veteran backup?

With everybody healthy, Gee just couldn't get onto the floor.

I think if the spurs could they would bring temple back at the very minimum, but most likely some random player from their toro squad.

Who is in the Toros that can actually be helpful? Maybe bringing Matt Bonner´s little brother over so we get two Bonner to joke about in here?

Tyler Wilkerson would be nice. He had an outstanding summer league.

ha! I guess when your talking about the 13th spot it is what it is.

We sure could use some perimeter defense though, we're near the bottom at opponents three point percentage. Wilkerson is the right height and we got a look at him, so who knows.

No... Teams only have to have a max of 12 players active

Section 1. Active Roster Size. Each Team agrees to have twelve (12) players on its Active List and to have a minimum
of eight (8) players on the bench for all Regular Season games. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
any Team may from time to time as appropriate, but for no more than two (2) consecutive weeks
at a time during the Regular Season, have eleven (11) players on its Active List.



Section 2. Inactive Roster Size.
Each Team agrees to have one (1) player on its Inactive List for all Regular Season
games. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Team may from time to time as appropriate, but for
no more than two (2) consecutive weeks at any time during the Regular Season, have no players
on its Inactive List. (So, in other words...we got 2 weeks to put someone on the inactive list)


Here's more info here: NBA.com - Roster Regulations

Pop has been agressive at whittling down the roster. My guess is that they already have someone lined up as I believe they had another 2 weeks before having to waive anyone before full season contracts become mandatory.

we're a bit thin at 3, given that anderson wont be back for a while. maybe the spurs are altruistic enough to want these guys to play ball for someone earlier in the season...who knows?

The roster was getting too young in age, by established Spurs standards, so Pop is making room for the comeback of Sean, Bruce and David.

I am pretty sure we don't have enough cap space for that. But it would be sweet: "My Id and Super Ego are staying with DWade and CB, but Timmy D needs my Ego down by the river."

Get Danny Green. He could develop into the lock down defender the Spurs have been lacking.

How about a multi-team deal-- Chris Paul for Paul George for George Hill for Jordan Hill for D'Andre Jordan?

Spurs aren't really going to do better than what they got. Just imagine what Ibaka is going to command soon enough. Talent and athleticism.

Splitter is a good start. Maybe Cousin will have developed over the year.

Spurs are doing a good job of revamping their wings to be able to compete with Portland/OKC/etc.

Losing guys like Finley (his last 2 years)/Ime/Bogans/RMJ and replacing them with guys like Hill/Anderson/Green.

Temple is more of a 1/2, but still needed more work to get the PG side down. I still hope he comes back next training camp though. Gee is too raw. Hairston wasn't worth fighting to keep as he didn't develop as far as they needed.

I think we get stuck thinking we want a "Bowen." However, there were times when even with Bowen, we wished we had another guy, especially when Bowen picked up some fouls.

Also gives you more options to throw on Kobe and make him work all night, especially when they can hit shots on offense. Also nice, that the Spurs just keep bolstering their lineup of shooters, not guys who can get streaky at hit at times like RMJ.
