San Antonio Spurs

Fantasy Blurbs

  • Julian Washburn - F - San Antonio Spurs

    The San Antonio Spurs have waived center Amida Brimah and forward Julian Washburn.

    These two guys were are not quite ready for prime time, and will be looking at destinations in G-League or overseas to develop their skills. They aren’t fantasy relevant no matter where they land.

  • Derrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White has made Team USA's roster for the September World Cup Qualifiers.

    White is joined by fellow NBA players Henry Ellenson, Dwayne Bacon and Isaiah Hicks. With Tony Parker now in Charlotte, White will be competing for reserve minutes at the point with Patty Mills, who played a lot of shooting guard last season. He's not a strong fantasy play outside of deep dynasty formats but should be in line for more minutes.

  • Josh Huestis - G - San Antonio Spurs

    The Spurs will bring Josh Huestis in for training camp.

    Huestis has been working out with San Antonio this offseason so it's no surprise but he's unlikely to make the final roster. It's reportedly going to be an Exhibit 10 deal when all the details are ironed out.

  • Danny Green - SG/SF - San Antonio Spurs

    Danny Green and Rudy Gay haven't decided on whether they will pick up their player options for next year.

    Green’s option is for $10 million while Gay’s is for approximately $8.8. Both guys should be looking to sign long-term deals and a lot will depend on the direction the franchise will take this summer as Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker might decide to retire while Kawhi Leonard’s future with the Spurs is up in the air. Green was still able to average 0.9 steals and 1.1 blocks per game but he shot an ugly 39 percent from the field while Gay played in just 57 games due to an assortment of injuries.

  • Pau Gasol - PF/C - San Antonio Spurs

    Speaking to reporters after Tuesday’s game, Pau Gasol said that he doesn’t have any plans to retire but he would love to play at least three or four more years.

    Gasol was also quoted saying that he has a lot left in the tank while he believes this was one of his most efficient years given his playing time. He has two more years left and $32 million remaining in his contract in what was a surprisingly deal he signed last summer and it would be interesting to see what happens with him if the Spurs have to move to a different direction.

  • Kawhi Leonard - SF - San Antonio Spurs

    An all-hands-on-deck summer meeting with Kawhi Leonard sits high on the priority list for the Spurs this offseason.

    With head coach Gregg Popovich expected to take the lead, the Spurs plan to meet with Leonard soon in order to gauge whether the sides can work out their differences and continue what has been largely a positive and productive partnership. Leonard was sidelined for all but nine games this season because of a quadriceps issue that has led to an icy relationship with the team's front office over his diagnosis and the rehabilitation process. A lot will depend on whether the Spurs intend to offer Leonard a $219 million supermax extension and it will be interesting to see how this story unfolds in the next few weeks.

  • Manu Ginobili - SG/SF - San Antonio Spurs

    Speaking to reporters after Tuesday’s game, Manu Ginobili said that he feels like he can still play, but he plans to make a decision on whether to retire or not in 3-4 weeks.

    Manu was able to play in 70 games this season and even though his fantasy value has diminished due to the lack of playing time, he still gave us some vintage lines. It’s unclear if he returns next season and a lot will depend on what happens with Kawhi Leonard as the Spurs might be transitioning to a new era after this summer.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge - PF/C - San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge turned in a great effort on Tuesday night with 30 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 14-of-14 mark from the free throw line but the Spurs' comeback came up short as their season ended with a Game 5 loss.

    San Antonio put together a 14-4 run to cut the lead down to two in the final minute but they would come no closer as the talent gap proved to be too much. Aldridge was excellent this season, thriving as the top dog with Kawhi Leonard sidelined. The Spurs made a good call in re-tooling their offense to help him out, and it resulted in a tremendously successful season for both player and team (and fantasy owners).

  • Manu Ginobili - SG - San Antonio Spurs

    Manu Ginobili came off the bench and posted 10 points, five rebounds, seven assists and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors.

    If this is it for Manu, it's been a heck of a ride. He had a few shining moments in this brief postseason run and there were instances where he looked nothing like a 40-year-old. The prevailing sentiment on Twitter and around the league calls for one more year, but only Manu can make that decision.

  • Patty Mills - PG/SG - San Antonio Spurs

    Patty Mills dropped 18 points in Tuesday's loss, hitting 7-of-15 from the field with four triples and five rebounds.

    Mills found a home as the starting shooting guard this season and once he stopped being moved between different roles he settled in rather nicely. It's tough to project what that means for next season, however, as the Spurs could be headed for plenty of changes this summer. He was one of the few bright spots in this one, though Kyle Anderson (10 points, 5-of-5 shooting, four rebounds, three assists) was also able to play well in a supplemental role.

  • Rudy Gay - SF/PF - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay finished the season with a 4-for-15 shooting line in Tuesday's elimination game, scoring nine points with four rebounds, two assists and a triple.

    Gay played 33 minutes and if there's one takeaway from his season, it's that he looks pretty good for a guy coming off a terrible Achilles injury. When the Spurs are at full strength he's a bench player but he stepped up when called upon in the playoffs, even if his stats weren't always there. Gay is one of the few healthy Spurs who has some offensive flourish so the shots were going to come whether he was feeling it or not.
