The San Antonio Spurs took Adam Hanga in the 2nd round of the 2011 NBA Draft

Blogged under Big Spurs News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Friday 24 June 2011 at 5:12 pm

The Spurs took 22-year old, 6’7″, 200 pound SG Adam Hanga out of Hungary with the 59th overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft. Hanga played in 39 games in Hungary last year and he averaged 33.3 minutes, 17.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.8 steals per game. He also shot 57.2% from the floor last year. The Spurs are going to be willing to wait for Hanga. They continue to leave no rock unturned when looking for international talent and that’s one of the reasons that the Spurs have been so successful lately.

The San Antonio Spurs acquired Davis Bertans last night

Blogged under Big Spurs News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Friday 24 June 2011 at 5:09 pm

The Pacers picked 18-year old, 6’10”, 210 pound forward Davis Bertans out of Slovenia last night and they then dealt him to the Spurs to complete the George Hill trade. Bertans played with three teams in Europe last year and he played in 27 games in which he averaged 12.6 minutes, 5.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game. The Spurs will likely play the waiting game with Bertans just like they did with Tiago Splitter.

The San Antonio Spurs took Cory Joseph in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft

Blogged under Big Spurs News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Friday 24 June 2011 at 5:06 pm

The Spurs took 19-year old combo guard Cory Joseph with the 29th overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft last night. He is 6’3″, 185 pounds so he could likely handle either the point or shooting guard spot. Joseph played in 36 games for the Texas Longhorns last year (his only year in college) and he averaged 32.4 minutes, 10.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Joseph did hit 52 of 126 (41.3%) shots from three point range last year. The Spurs will have plenty of minutes behind Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Gary Neal in 2011-12, so Joseph will likely be thrown right into the fire as a bench player in 2011-12.

The San Antonio Spurs acquired small forward Kawhi Leonard from the Pacers last night

Blogged under Big Spurs News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Friday 24 June 2011 at 5:01 pm

The Indiana Pacers took 19-year old small forward Kawhi Leonard with the #15 overall pick last night before dealing him along with 18-year old forward Davis Bertans (the #42 overall pick) to the Spurs for George Hill. Leonard is 6’7″, 225 pounds and he played his college ball at San Diego State. Leonard played in 36 games for San Diego State last year and he averaged 32.6 minutes, 15.5 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Leonard played in 70 games in his two years in college and he averaged 31.9 minutes, 14.1 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Leonard has a huge upside and he will battle James Anderson and Richard Jefferson for the starting small forward job in 2011-12 for the Spurs.

The San Antonio Spurs deal George Hill to the Pacers

Blogged under Big Spurs News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Friday 24 June 2011 at 7:46 am

The Spurs dealt 25-year old SG/PG George Hill to the Pacers for a first round pick (SF Kawhi Leonard), a second round pick (F Davis Bertans) and a second round pick from 2005 (F Erazem Lorbek). Hill played in 76 games (5 starts) for the Spurs last year and he averaged 28.3 minutes, 11.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. He played in 231 games (55 starts) for the Spurs in his three years with the team and he averaged 24.6 minutes, 9.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. This will likely be a good deal for both teams as Hill will likely start at SG for the Pacers with rookie small forward Kawhi Leonard having a good shot to start for the Spurs.

The San Antonio Spurs have two picks in the NBA Draft

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Monday 20 June 2011 at 2:55 pm

The San Antonio Spurs have the #29 and the #59 picks in the NBA Draft on Thursday. I think the Spurs need another young big guy for the rotation and the future. I have a feeling that PF/C Jeremy Tyler could be available at #29 and he would be a nice fit for the Spurs. They could also take a SF like Kyle Singler out of Duke and pick a big man later. Whoever the Spurs pick, they will likely be brought along really slowly as they try to play for an NBA title once again in 2011-12.

The San Antonio Spurs have a possible trio of free agents heading into this summer

Blogged under Big Spurs News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Monday 20 June 2011 at 9:05 am

Future Hall of Fame PF Tim Duncan has a early termination option in his contract, but I don’t see him using it. Why would he? He has a legacy in San Antonio and players with class stay with their teams. SF Steve Novak and PG Chris Quinn are free agents and I don’t see the Spurs bringing either of them back for 2011-12. I don’t see this being a very eventful summer for the Spurs as they will likely bring essentially the same team back that had the best record in the NBA during the regular season.

David Robinson was the main man for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Saturday 4 June 2011 at 3:10 pm

Center David Robinson spent his whole outstanding NBA career with the San Antonio Spurs. Robinson played in 14 seasons with the Spurs and he played in 987 games (985 starts) in which he averaged 34.7 minutes, 21.1 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 3.0 blocked shots per game. The Admiral is the all-time leader in Spurs’ history in both steals (1,388) and blocked shots (2,954). He is also #3 in points scored (20,790), #2 in rebounds (10,497), #2 in games played (987) and #7 in assists with 2,441. David Robinson was the perfect mentor to Tim Duncan, and that’s the guy that has been passing him up in the Spurs’ record books. That being said, Robinson was an awesome player in his own right for the Spurs.

Tim Duncan is starting to slow down a little bit for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up by alleyoop on Saturday 4 June 2011 at 3:03 pm

35-year old power forward Tim Duncan is starting to slow down a bit. The Spurs wanted to limit Duncan’s minutes last year to keep him healthy and fresh. It worked as he played in 76 games (all starts) in which he averaged 28.4 minutes, 13.4 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.9 blocked shots per game. He’s a shell of his former self but that’s because he has entered the twilight of his NBA career. Duncan has now played in 1,053 games (1,051 starts) in his 14 years with the Spurs and he is averaging 35.8 minutes, 20.6 points, 11.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.3 blocked shots per game. Duncan is already the all-time leader in Spurs’ history in games played (1,051) and rebounds (12,013). He is also #4 in assists (3,296), #7 in steals (784), #2 in blocked shots (2,381) and #2 in points scored (21,663) in Spurs’ history. Duncan is one of the best power forwards in NBA history and he’s still a good, but not great player.
