last year we had Ginobili/Jefferson/Leonard/Green/Anderson in the 2-3 positions and we still looked at Josh Howard, no trade.

we have a whopping 7 guards on the roster with 2 SF's, if we were making a trade we'd have more than enough to compensate losing 2 wing players

If the Spurs are trying to work a trade, ideally, you'd want to make it before training camp starts. Somebody better get the lead out.

I don't know why they are obsessed with Josh Howard, the guy hasn't been significant since his early days with Dallas, and no, I don't think they are trying to put together a package to make a trade, it's a complete waste to even look at another Guard or Small Forward, it's so simple to point out what the Spurs need, a big man, and these days not very many big men are talented enough to dominate the league as they did in the 90's but what the Spurs need to do is take a mother f******g chance on 1 of them! It's so annoying! Shooting 3's and scoring a bunch of points wins you regular season games (remember the Steve Nash phx teams?) but never wins championships! Let's get back to the basics of what Spurs basketball is about, DEFENSE!

No great mystery here, Howard is waiting for the Jazz to buy out Bell, then he resigns with them.

No trade in works, nothing other than extending courtesy to a player.

I used to view training camp as just a way to work out the summer rust and introduce a few new concepts before going into an 82 game season where teams would hone the coaching philosophy. After listening to Pop harp this summer on how he would use Leonard, Diaw and Mills differently, had they had a training camp, I view it as something far more important now.

agreed. plus, we have a lock jam of SG's who can play SF and 2 SF's we're not trading. if we were even to trade 2 guards for a big, we still have enough overall depth to keep par with last year and not need to sign a Josh Howard.

Have you checked my suggested trade scenario under thread entitled "Fantasy Trade Scenario". It goes along the same line but addressing some of our more mentioned tradeable players.

Early this offseason I predicted the Spurs could trade Jackson and that's what it's looking like.

Nooo they are crazy! Jack was the only spur showing some pride in the last games!

I agree wholeheartedly. The Captain was invaluable on defense down the stretch, particularly when he guarded bigger opponents. He and Leonard provided a 1-2 punch on defense with Jack coming off the bench. If the Spurs cut Jack loose for Howard, I'd be very disappointed. Personally, I think Howard is a slug who has no game since he left Dallas.

Honestly, I would take almost any other available big man over Howard right now. Nearly without exception.

Agreed. Captain Jack must stay. Don't trade him, Pop, RC, please! His pride, his tenacity will be valuable in play offs.

Captain Jack is going to be Jonesing for a good last contract, more than what the Spurs will be willing to pay. A trade may never happen, but that's obviously what they are exploring right now. It also doesn't make sense that Josh Howard or the Spurs would waste their time and money by having this workout simply for "player courtesy".

With Jackson's playoff performance and expiring contract only makes his trade value better and at the right time.
