The San Antonio Spurs could be busy this summer in free agency http://sanantonio.bloglockers.com/spurs/2013/07/01/the-san-antonio-spurs-could-be-busy-this-summer-in-free-agency/ http://sanantonio.bloglockers.com/spurs/2013/07/01/the-san-antonio-spurs-could-be-busy-this-summer-in-free-agency/#comments Mon, 01 Jul 2013 20:15:49 +0000 joelapinski http://sanantonio.bloglockers.com/spurs/?p=789 The Spurs have a lot of ways they could go in free agency.  Manu Ginobili, Gary Neal and Tiago Splitter are all free agents and the Spurs could decide to let them all leave and go in a different direction.  The Spurs might be o.k. with moving Tim Duncan to center for the 2013-14 season and open up a spot for a starting power forward or they could leave him at PF and look for a new center.  Here are three guys that could interest the Spurs this summer:

Andrei Kirilenko - The Spurs already are showing interest in signing Kirilenko.  He would have to play power forward on the Spurs, as Kawhi Leonard is ready to rock in 2013-14 at small forward.

J.J. Hickson - J.J. Hickson would be a nice target for the Spurs.  He averaged a double-double last year for the Blazers.

Andray Blatche - Blatche is an up and comer.  He played well off the bench for the Nets last year.
