The San Antonio Spurs are getting solid work out of their rookies in 2015-16

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by joelapinski on Tuesday 15 March 2016 at 6:47 pm

26-year old shooting guard Jonathan Simmons and 27-year old center Boban Marjanovic have been great for the San Antonio Spurs whenever called upon.  Simmons bided his time in the D-League until this year.  He has played in 48 games (1 start) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 14.0 minutes, 5.6 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.  In the 10 games in which Simmons has played between 20-29 minutes, he is averaging 23.4 minutes, 10.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.  Marjanovic is a big man!  He has played in 43 games (1 start) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 7.9 minutes, 4.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.  When Marjanovic has played between 10-29 minutes, he is averaging 15.3 minutes, 10.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game in those 15 games.  These guys both have huge upsides if the Spurs ever need them to play extended minutes.

The San Antonio Spurs have signed 33-year old shooting guard Kevin Martin.  Martin played in 39 games (12 starts) for the Timberwolves earlier this year (he was waived last week after a buyout)  and he averaged 21.4 minutes, 10.6 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.  Martin has now played in 698 games (503 starts) in his first 12 years in the NBA and he is averaging 30.5 minutes, 17.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.  This was a good signing for the Spurs, as Martin can still put the ball in the basket.

Patty Mills has been part of the San Antonio Spurs’ glue players

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Friday 4 March 2016 at 10:11 am

27-year old point guard Patty Mills could start for a lot of teams in the NBA, but he continues to be the guy that allows the San Antonio Spurs to watch Tony Parker‘s workload.  Mills has played in 61 games (2 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 20.5 minutes, 8.6 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.  Mills is shooting 44.8% from the floor, 40.4% from three point range and 74.3% from the free throw line so far this year.  Mills has now played in 267 games (9 starts) in his first five years with the Spurs and he is averaging 16.8 minutes, 8.1 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.  Mills is the ultimate team player!

Blogged under Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 3 October 2013 at 8:04 am

The Spurs have invited 26-year old center Marcus Cousin to training camp.  Cousin’s only NBA experience came back in 2010-11 with the Utah Jazz.  He played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Jazz last year and he averaged 4.5 minutes, 1.0 point and 0.8 rebounds per game for the Jazz in 2010-11.  He is going to be a big time longshot to win a roster spot for the Spurs in 2013-14.

The San Antonio Spurs sign Sam Young

Blogged under Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Friday 27 September 2013 at 8:24 am

The Spurs have signed 28-year old SG/SF Sam Young.  Young played in 56 games (3 starts) for the Pacers last year and he averaged 12.4 minutes, 2.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game.  Young has now played in 249 games (52 starts) in his first four years in the NBA and he is averaging 15.9 minutes, 5.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game.  Young is a good veteran to help out near the end of the bench for the Spurs in 2013-14.
