Fuggedaboutit. Roster is set. We all should know by now that anyone close to resembling a quality name in the NBA is NOT signing with us. Fact is we should have gotten MO as the backup because that position needs to be solidifes as was shown in the finals when TP calmly was hampered by hamstring. As much as I'd love a center we missed out. The FO must like what they see in Cojo and rookie D Thomas as backup pg and sf

Well, obviously it wasn't about playing for a contender.

Opportunities are slipping away to pick up quality pieces for the team. Evidently, the Spurs FO have a grand plan or they are satisfied with the present team chemistry and are ready for training camp to open in October, as is.

In hindsight, I guess Pop saw the need for a multi-dimensional 2 guard and power forward that could be utilized in a 7 game series and turned it over to RC to spin his magic. No telling what their plans are for Thompson. The word from the scouts seems to have been that he doesn't have the lateral quickness to defend the perimeter as a small forward. We will just have to wait and see if the Spurs see a possibility in correcting that. Otherwise, I think he goes to Europe or gets dropped entirely.

I think the issue was that he played PF in college so they worry about whether he can stay with the wing players but he is going to be going up against 2nd or 3rd string wingers for when kawhi and then whoever they decide to play as his direct backup (one article said most likely manu or danny would slide over to cover for him) and then he would come in should two guys be in foul trouble or be injured. Plus he seems like he could bring some solid offense. If he has the post moves that we would expect a power forward to have it would be nice to see him use them somewhat like kawhi has down in the post.
I'm just going off what I have read and the little bit I saw of him in the summer league game.

Depending on the matchup, I can see Diaw also logging minutes at the 3.
