Dejounte Murray was one of the Spurs’ greatest developmental triumphs. The decision to trade him was cold.
And sad.
And the right thing to do.
Why the Spurs moved on, and why Gregg Popovich is on board with a rebuild:…8:22 PM

Cuando Sam Presti ve como su mentor Gregg Popovich y @San Antonio Spurs imitan a @Oklahoma City Thunder y comienzan a coleccionar selecciones de primera vuelta….. PM

Can report that Gregg Popovich gave his official blessing to the Murray trade and — while nothing is guaranteed, obviously — he’s completely on board with coaching a bunch of kids next season.
As a team source just told me, he’s excited, “like he’s back at Pomona-Pitzer.” – 6:03 PM

Maybe it’s actually the poetic bookend for Gregg Popovich in San Antonio: A season of struggle — and Duncan-esque dreams of Victor Wembanyama — reminiscent of the Spurs’ 20-62 campaign in 1996-97 … when Pop took over 18 games in.

I, for one, will find it entertaining to watch Gregg Popovich coach a bunch of 19-year-olds next season – 5:27 PM

I don’t think Will Hardy is a huge departure from Quin Snyder.
Academic background, favored academia at times over playing career, Gregg Popovich/Spurs background.

Ime Udoka
Mike Budenholzer
Monty Williams
Steve Kerr
Taylor Jenkins
Doc Rivers
Mike Brown
Will Hardy
Absolute legend. PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Hardy, like Quin Snyder, has roots with San Antonio and Gregg Popovich. He will be the youngest active head coach in the league. He separated himself in the interview process, which was long and thorough on Utah’s part – 3:18 PM
