Spurs think they can re-sign Jakob Poeltl

- by

Tim MacMahon on the Spurs: The other thing you might hear from the Spurs is, ‘Hey, we feel decent about our chance to to re-sign him’. And then if it’s not us, resigning him a sign-and-trade would certainly be a possibility.

As a presumably busy deadline day approaches, the Spurs are tasked with striking the right balance between asset acquisition and maintaining a solid support system for the rebuild.

Celtics, Raptors reportedly interested in Jakob Poeltl trade, but price remains high nba.nbcsports.com/2023/01/18/cel…12:05 PM

The Spurs are asking for a lot in any potential Jakob Poeltl deal, which is what they should be doing.
Because at this point, selling their big man for anything less than an offer they can’t refuse would undermine the process they promised (unlocked) matthewtynan.substack.com/p/spurs-jakob-…10:04 AM

My new Slop Season hot take is that I’d rather trade nothing for Drew Eubanks than a first round pick for Jakob Poeltl. – 9:49 AM

A late-night edition of the newsletter, because the trade deadline is like three weeks away, there are games every other night, and we gotta keep this conversation moving.

More on this storyline

Boston has maintained an interest in Poeltl for several seasons now and is continuing to monitor his market, according to team sources who were granted anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. The sticking point has been, as always, price. San Antonio has made it known to interested parties throughout the league the Spurs want two first-round picks for Poeltl, according to team and league sources, which was the same stance they took on Derrick White last season. -via The Athletic / January 18, 2023
They have certainly sniffed around the big man market in recent seasons. Toronto engaged Dallas about acquiring Kristaps Porzingis for Goran Dragic and the first-round pick ultimately sent to San Antonio for Thaddeus Young. The Raptors registered interest in Rudy Gobert this summer, sources told Yahoo Sports, although there was never a serious approach from Toronto. Myles Turner and Deandre Ayton have been two other centers on Toronto’s radar, sources said. And former Raptors center Jakob Poeltl, who left the franchise with DeMar DeRozan as part of a 2018 offseason blockbuster to land Kawhi Leonard, remains a target of Toronto’s front office, as Yahoo Sports reported in December. -via Yahoo! Sports / January 17, 2023
 Spurs center Jakob Poeltl has gained significant trade interest from teams such as the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics, according to league sources who, like all the other sources in this story, were granted anonymity so that they would be able to speak freely. -via The Athletic / January 17, 2023
