Are the Spurs paying for the draft order?

Are they conceding for higher draft pick in a loaded rookie class? Is it too late for Kawhi to get into form and shape to push then past the top 5 (GSW,HOU,OKC,UTA,DEN)? Those are the best teams in my opinion. With Butler missing from Minnesota...They'll drop to. Also seems the Pelicans have had our number for a couple years now.

I saw where the number 10 spot in the west is good for the 13th pick with a 2.2% chance to land #1 (yeah right). I know Kawhi is great...but 15 or so games to get a acclimated back with the squad and a possible nightmare match up in the first round (GSW,HOU)....is it more beneficial for the Spurs future to miss the playoffs?

(Oops...meant to say "Playing for the draft order).

Does a back-to-back count?

Right now, we’re on a 3-game losing streak and we’re in a three-way tie for 8th seed in the West with Denver and Utah, each having a 37-30 record. Our next six games are at home against Orlando, NO, Minn, GSW, Wash, Utah. I would like to win at least four of these but would settle with a split. Last night against the Rockets, Pop was pissed with the effort given by our starting 5, so he substituted all 5 of them. Our defense sucks and our scoring support behind Aldridge also sucks. I would hope with the return of Kawhi our guys will pull their heads out and put forth a better effort. Even if we get a 7th or 8th seed, I don’t see us getting out of the 1st round against either Houston or GSW. Personally, I wouldn’t be against having our 2nd/3rd stringers get the majority of playing time for the remaining games and start looking at next year.

Now it seems as if Leonard is ready...but know I think the Spurs are waiting to see if they make the playoffs. If they don't...then he'll have all summer to (Heal). But still a dangerous situation with a HUGE contract laying in wait for both he and the Spurs.
