Spurs want two first-round picks for Jakob Poeltl

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.
Since 1973-74, only four players 6-foot-4 or shorter (White, Dwayne Wade, Patrick Beverley and Eric Bledsoe) have ever notched a block percentage of at least three while qualifying for the league leaderboard in minutes per game. White, who did it once in San Antonio, entered Monday on track to become the first player on the list twice. With 41 blocked shots over 45 games played, he also has a small chance to join Wade as the first 6-foot-4 or shorter player to average at least one block per game with the same playing time stipulation since Dennis Johnson did so for the Seattle Supersonics during the 1979-80 season. Including Wade, who did it six times, only four players at White’s height or shorter have achieved that feat since the NBA began tracking blocks during the 1973-74 season. Johnson and David Thompson each did it twice.
