Matt Bonner Farewell Tour 2013

Per Project Spurs:


Right now, the Spurs have a combined $30 million in contracts coming off the books this summer. That's Manu, Jackson, Tiago Splitter (restricted free agent), DeJuan Blair (restricted) and Gary Neal (restricted). Matt Bonner's contract is only guaranteed for $1 million if he's waived by June 29th, so that could be an extra $3 million off the books. Additionally, Boris Diaw and Patty Mills have player options on their deals. We'll assume they don't opt of their deals but the Spurs do waive Bonner and say they have approximately $33 million in expiring contracts which would get them about $23 million in cap space.



There is your proof boys!

FYI NBA Draft is June 27th. So he will be gone by that time.

Manu and Tiago will be back, and probably Diaw, Mills and Neal too.

Most likely but at reduced money for Manu. just showing the Bonner lovers and haters that he can be let go for less.

If not sooner before the trade deadline which might reduce the ulcer pains fans have been getting during the playoffs based on Bonner's past performances.

Still don't know what the Spurs would do with cap space. No one ever comes here unless it's a veteran that is on his last legs.

Thanks for the find Will!!
Bonner's acquisition can fit at least two NBA teams now.
Let's hope Spurs can get it done before trade deadline and get Spurs either a veteran who is looking for his ring or any okay big/sf who fits here..

No way the Spurs trade Bonner before the deadline. Great 3pt shooting among contending teams is a must!

I agree... but we are talking about playoffs after the dealine which doesn't apply to Bonner's 3pt shooting cause he shoots nothing but bricks during that timeframe.

Guapo you mentioned The Main Point.

That is the Exact REASON why Spurs should trade Bonner who has THE BEST VALUE to get out of him as he is right there top of the league's in Three Point Shooting.

Bonner is not going anywhere before this summer. With Tim probably nursing his knee the rest of the season Bonner will get plenty of minutes. Bayne may get a few minutes later in the season, but they will be minimal. He was signed this year because he wouldn't be available if the Spurs waited until the summer. The Spurs would not be able to find anyone that could fit into the rotation with Bonner's "corporate knowledge" that would do any better job than Bonner--not even close. So everyone just buckle up and enjoy the ride...

If Manu is coming back it better be for the minimum salary, he has not earned his money the last 2 years.

I would take a BARRY and Horry again! Hell I would take 06-07 Finley again. They came up big in the playoff games. We needed a backup PG in the worst way! When TP was out nobody seemed to be able to run the O worth a damnnnnn.

Funny . I could have sworn Bonner had something to do with completing the journey to the playoffs. We have to go through more than 4 teams to get there. ****Edited for friendlier tone.

I don't think you waive a guy who knows the system and is a great contributor in the long road to the playoffs to save a couple million (relatively speaking of course), unless you need that little bit of money to sign some good free agents. I don't think they do it unless they know they've got somebody coming.

Take it from Mike Monroe.
"A sub’s sub: According to the NBA, Matt Bonner on Sunday became just the third non-starter in league history to be perfect on at least seven 3-pointers in a game...".

Bonner might be a good trade piece Thursday night because of his contract buyout.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Bonner traded, then waived and brought back this fall.

I don't think he'd be allowed until the following season.
Memory says that he wouldn't be allowed to return to SA until the contract he was under at the trade would have expired. In other words, he can't come back any sooner than his contract runs.

I have a feeling this won't matter at all to the Spurs and they will keep him no matter what. I think they probably still see him as someone who knows the offense and gives them a small part of what they need (good 3pt shooting and occasional hilarious lucky drives to the basket) for the bargain price of 3.5 mil.

Just like Bonner, I think this applies to most of the team. I don't see too many changes and everything will be status quo with a few minor tweeks. The main one being saving some money on Jackson being gone, Manu coming back at a cheaper price (esp if they renounce and re-sign him), and re-signing Splitter at a price we all will be mad at.

So maybe the Spurs will sign one FA that will be slightly significant but it won't be anyone you expected or make headline news. We all know the drill... and it might not be a bad thing IF they can fill some of their weaknesses w/whoever will be drafted/signed/or became better over summer. We will see...

I believe that is in a buyout scenario, not when the team receiving him elects not to pick up a team option.

I think Bonner at 3.9 million is way too high a salary for a guy who sat out Game 7 this year and Game 6 last year in the playoffs. 3.9 million might not seem like a lot of cap space but added to a healthy sum........it makes a big impact.

I don't think they'll pay him the full salary next year. I think they are trying to trade him as part of a piece to get a high quality player in return.

But look around at market value. Lots of teams pay more for less production, especially considering his skill set and the fact that he just shuts up and does his job. It's easy to underestimate how rare that is.

Man I was so wrong on this.......I guess I need to eat a dumpster full of crow on this one. I'm shocked they didn't trade him or exercise the buyout. SHOCKED!

Amnesty Bonner has a great ring to it. If, it gives us enough to sign someone who can actually contribute.
