Eric Pincus: The San Antonio Spurs extended qualifying offers to make Kawhie Leonard and Cory Joseph restricted free agents @BBallInsiders
Chris Haynes: Free agent guard Mo Williams anticipates meeting with #Cavs, league source tells @Clevelanddotcom. The team “very interested” in his return. Ryan Wolstat: Interesting. Cavs also have been linked to Cory Joseph.
Matthew R Tynan: My guess: It’s Splitter and CoJo. Rich Paul (CoJo’s agent) can get a deal done with the Spurs, then they’ll work out a sign-and-trade. Jeff McDonald: We’re told Cleveland is shopping for a scoring point guard, which Cory is not. LBJ/agent angle an interesting one.
Zach Lowe: On my potential free agent steals list today. RT @JMcDonald_SAEN: Pop says CoJo has “played his ass off” and has “earned the time.” Ryan Wolstat: @ZachLowe_NBA @JMcDonald_SAEN Expect Cleveland and Toronto to take long looks …
Ryan Wolstat: ie. Don’t expect to see Tristan Thompson or Cory Joseph with Canada this summer, unless extensions done far sooner than anyone expects. They do expect Andrew Wiggins to play, Tyler Ennis, Stauskas, Anthony Bennett, Olynyk, Nicholson, etc.
Paul Garcia: Funny moment from Tim Duncan tonight: Purposely moved the entire media scrum in Cory Joseph’s locker area while Cojo was getting ready.
What they say is true. The Spurs have an ego you can’t see with an electron microscope. A favorite story is the time Cory Joseph, struggling with his game, called his coach and asked, “Pop, can I go back to the D-League?” I wrote: “There was, Joseph recalls, two or three seconds of silence. It isn’t often a first-round NBA pick asks to be reassigned to the D-League. It may be unprecedented for a first-rounder to make the request after four previous D-League stops in the same season.” Therein lies a secret to this team.
Paul Garcia: The Spurs announced Cory Joseph is questionable for Kings game Friday. Patty Mills, Tiago Splitter remain out.
With the deadline for members of the 2011 draft class to reach a contract extension having come and gone Friday, Joseph — the Spurs’ 23-year-old backup point guard — is set to become a restricted free agent in July. He is neither surprised by this development, nor is he daunted by it. “It’s definitely an opportunity for me,” Joseph said. “I can control my destiny, so that’s the good thing about it.”
You know you made it when an entire rap song is honoring you. San Antonio Spurs’ Cory Joseph has an entire rap song dedicated to him by Canadian rapper “C Black featuring Mike Black.”

Dan McCarney: Popovich said he cited Joseph at film session today at the approach he’s looking for: “Everybody has to take the attitude of Cory Joseph kind of a take-no-prisoners, bunker mentality. He was fantastic, and he did that better than anybody on our team.”

From the earliest days of the fabled Zarko Paspalj era in the late 1980s, the Spurs have been at the forefront of international scouting. No surprise, then, that they once again have the most players born outside the continental United States, breaking their own NBA record with 10: Tim Duncan (U.S. Virgin Islands), Manu Ginobili (Argentina), Tony Parker (France, by way of Belgium), Tiago Splitter (Brazil), Boris Diaw (France), Marco Belinelli (Italy), Nando De Colo (France), Patty Mills (Australia), Cory Joseph (Canada), Aron Baynes (Australia, by way of New Zealand).
The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have exercised their fourth-year options on forward Kawhi Leonard and guard Cory Joseph. Both players are now signed through the 2014-15 season.
If the Spurs opt to extend Joseph’s rookie-scale deal, the 29th pick will receive a raise of $280,502, to $1.36 million. Though he doesn’t consider the 2013-14 season as “make or break,” Joseph approaches it with a degree of urgency. “They haven’t told me if a fourth year is for sure yet, so obviously you’ve got to look at it as your last season right now,” Joseph said Monday after a long session at the team’s practice facility. “I’m going to be playing hard and playing confident and hopefully make a jump in the right direction.”
“I’m very motivated to help my country get a great performance in Caracas.” – Cory Joseph on the @fibaamericas Championship #RedWhiteandProud
