On the daily Locked On Spurs podcast, host Jeff Garcia and a panel of Spurs media members discussed the state of the Spurs and if anyone on the roster is untouchable in trade talks. Jeff Garcia: Are any of the Spurs on this current roster untouchable? As by way of trade? Why are we not explain? Casey Viera: If anything, I think one can make the argument that they should put out feelers for every single guy on the roster. You can make that argument because I have a very strong definition of untouchable. I associate untouchable to maybe a 10 to 15 player in the league. That’s probably even generous, maybe the top 10 players in the league you call untouchable. Who on the roster right now resembles that of a top 10 player? Who in that roster represents a pretty good player that can be in the league for a little while? There are several guys on the team, Dejounte Murray, Derrick White of course is the obvious candidate here.
Hughes’ intangibles are what sell his ability to succeed long term. His career thus far is one marked by overcoming adversity and is a tale that shows how conducive fit and situation is to growth and development. Perhaps the most notable accomplishment of Hughes’ career came off the court, as the kid who had previously logged countless hours in summer school and studying for the SAT just to ensure his eligibility earned his degree in Human Development and Family Sciences this year. He showed the capacity to operate in whatever usage role was asked of him in college. Realistically, his role in the NBA will be much closer to the tertiary one we saw in his first season for Syracuse. In recent years, we have seen players like Pascal Siakam (New Mexico State), Brandon Clarke (San Jose State/Gonzaga), and Derrick White (UC-Colorado Springs/Colorado) take unorthodox paths to be first-round draft picks and ultimately finding NBA success. When all is said and done, do not be surprised if Elijah Hughes’ story has a similar ending.
