Does not make sense what so ever...

Should have not signed Marco and spend his money elsewhere then...

This smells of a trade if you ask me....way to many guards to carry and not enough Big Men and no true backup SF ....insane and I don't like it ..

+1. Hopefully a sign and trade of some sort in the works.

It makes no sense to me either with these many 1/2 position players (Belinelli, DeColo, Ginobili, Green, Joseph, Mills, Parker and now, supposedly, Neal). A sign and trade has to be in the works as the Spurs, in the past, have always seemed to keep that one roster slot open as a last resort. If they have all 15 active roster spots filled with signed players, there seems to be no initiative for summer league/training camp extras to fight for the team, only hope that another team happens to be scouting them.

I remember Gary was motivated by playing minutes so maybe Spurs promised him to stay for the same amount and play more minutes? Albeit Pop will find it hard to duplicate last year's 25 minutes per game in a back court that already has Tony Parker, Cory Joseph and Patty Mills at PG, and Danny Green, Manu Ginobili and Belinelli at SG????

Fox news KABB announcer at Maximum Sports said last night that Gary Neal's agent had not returned their station's call. And then the announcer said that Spurs might still be able to sign Neal Back as Gary has just not gotten hardly any offers as suggested.

Today I read online that 5 teams are interested in Neal. But we have not heard about how much was any offer. :shocked

I guess Spurs FO might just have thought if they get Neal Signed then they have some more good values to trade.............Very possible.....

If he's signed it's to be put in a trade. Don't be surprised if its for monte Ellis or ak-47. At least I hope it's involves one of the two. If prefer ak in all honesty

I'm not for sure, but I don't think we could sign and trade him for AK or Ellis, even if we throw other players in like Bonner. I don't think we can sign and trade, for another sign and trade player. Which AK and Ellis both would be. Maybe someone can confirm or refute that. Now, Neal, Bonner and something/someone else to the Blazers for Aldridge would be amazing. Don't think we would announce any sign and trade for any big before Splitter signs his contract.

Personally I'd rather have Ellis. He's capable of handling the ball, and distributing which was a glaring weakness in the finals when TP was sitting.

TP was our best option with the ball by far, even when slowed down by the hamstring. Manu just wasn't making good decisions when he had the ball w/o TP and Timmy beside him. In past championship seasons we had capable backups to TP, something we were sorely missing against Miami.

If it is for Ellis then it would have to be a combo with another PG OR SG on the roster cause then we have the same problem...

In a perfect would we would get a mobile 3 that can rebound and defend in return....cough AK47....cough....

Just a thought...

If we are signing NEAL/MANU/MARCO/PATTY ALL THIS OFFSEASON...

It could be DGreen or Nando in the deal....

My understanding is that we can sign and trade him, but we can't trade based on a matched offer sheet. In other words if we are going to work a deal with the bucks, it would have to be before they and Neal put pen to paper on an offer sheet.

Ninja we can part with. Dany Green is pretty close to untouchable. For sure I don't want to let Green go in exchange for a player as brittle as AK-47.

Yep, and they still did not address that part nor the SF backup part when they let Jax go. Just more guards and another backup PF.

Makes no ense if they just keep him, then again the Spurs have not made much sense in years with some moves so it would not surprise me if we managed to keep the log jam at guards this season.

I HOPE there is a decent trade in the works, that would only make sense.

The Spurs gave Neal a qualifying offer.
It could be he's just taking it.

That's the only scenario I can imagine -- he hit the market and found out he wasn't getting the offers he was anticipating. When I heard there was no chance of him coming back, I figured he was getting offers in the $4 million range -- anything less and I figured we'd match.

His qualifying offer was only $1.1 million, and that's about what he's worth, in my opinion -- low PER (11.5), very low TS%, offensive rating, defensive rating, and eFG%, and a usage rate outside his ability (21.7%, behind only the big 3). Terribly win shares per 48 at .060. He's just not that good.

Grizzly Bear, I get what you are saying about a sign and trade. But, what I was thinking, is we can't sign and trade a player (say Neal), for a guy that another team (say the Bucks and Ellis) also have to sign, then trade back.

I actually think we can do that, but Ellis would have to go along with it. And the bucks.

I agree. I think this can be done if the players agree to deal (money and team) similar to the rumors of Teague getting traded for Jennings.

I think that's right. And only if Ellis doesn't sign an offer sheet with anyone else.

Hmmm. Guess I misunderstood the CBA. Anyway, interesting logjam of guards we now have. Did Pop take off to the wine country and leave our signings to Don Nelson?

I think Pop looked at what may happen, and figured that any real signings would fill out the suit wearing guys on the bench.

First 11 contracts done, seeya!

If this is True... This is exciting.. We can play a legit small ball- ala the Bad Boys Detroit Pistons and the GSW..

I would have like to see another SF back up and was going to suggest Corey Brewer.. But to get Neal Back is also Solid.. Good JOB PATFO

By the minutes Gary got, Pop must like him. I am happy if he comes back great story, and seems like a great guy. From what I heard from Bulls fans Marco is mediocre at everything, so I suppose more consistent, but won't really make a difference.

Belinelli was asked to do too much for the Bulls. He's a solid 6th man or a good, complimentary wing, but with the Bulls he was asked to be a primary option. To put that in concrete terms, he's a Danny Green who was asked to be a Manu Ginobili (circa five years ago).
