30 days until the Spurs open the season against Dallas. I've missed you Spurs Twitter.
Spurs retained their entire championship team while spending fewer than $70 million. You know, typical Spurs stuff.
Spurs have 15 guaranteed players + 4 partially g. rookies ($150k total) - presumably all 4 will be assigned to Austin Toros D-League squad
Cool thing from that Pop & Duncan conversation Pop talked about. Spurs have been starting with basics every year for last 18 years.
Relayed some bad info yesterday. Mistunderstood that Parker will be staying in Europe until Spurs head over; will instead be back in SA...
Pop said Spurs are starting with basic drills they've began with 18 years ago. Said Duncan already knew opening drill.
And Kawhi hung out with his friends sometimes. A full offseason of fun for the Spurs.
Duncan capped his offseason with an appearance in a comic book. Bonner had a comic character created in his likeness. Spurs gonna Spurs.
Been told Aron Baynes signed via the Spurs' Mid-Level Exception - not Bi-Annual Exception - just signed at BAE $
Baynes' deal certainly looks like the BAE - which would save the Spurs' full MLE - but then no BAE in summer of 2015
Manu's beard is exceptionally thick and manly. I give him flawless victory over Pop, Duncan, rest of Spurs beardos. http://t.co/86jVYJBfvZ
How cool would it be to be a fly on the wall in Spurs' coaches meetings this season? Pop, Messina, Boylen, Hammon, Engelland...
So, Spurs staffer says new shower in media lounge is indeed for female employees. (Read: Becky Hammon). They think of everything!
Manu Ginobili waxed poetic on the difference between starting a season as defending champs, and what happened to Spurs the season before:
In addition to 15 guaranteed contracts, Spurs also bringing in undrafted rookies Bryce Cotton, JaMychal Green, Josh Davis and John Holland.
There are 19 players on Spurs' camp roster, one under max.
