Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol said he's "down" with coming the bench in San Antonio this season.

Gasol wants to do whatever will help the team win, and it would make some sense to bring the 38-year-old off the bench in order to help keep his minutes in the lower-20s. If Gasol ends up running with the second unit, that would open the door for Jakob Poeltl to start, making him an even more intriguing late-round target on draft day. At this point in his career, Gasol isn't really worth drafting anywhere.

Coach Gregg Popovich praised PG Dejounte Murray on Monday, saying he believes Murray is "up for the challenge" this season.

"He really wants to be good, he really wants to be to the team what Tony (Parker) was to the team," Popovich said of Murray. "I'm confident he'll do that as time goes on." Pop also added that "We're going to let him run." Murray's fantasy stock is rising as we speak. It was also notable that Dejounte said he worked on his 3-pointers this offseason. If he can start shooting even close to league-average from downtown, his value would spike.

Dejounte Murray said he worked on his 3-pointers because of how defenders sag off him.

He also said he is looking forward to being a team leader, and that coach Gregg Popovich viewed last year as his rookie year. Pop also said Murray will have "plenty on his plate" this year, too. Murray said he is more comfortable because he's been around basketball every day. With Kawhi Leonard, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker all gone, Murray looks poised for a breakout season, especially if he can up his 26.5 3P%. He's one of our favorite targets in the middle rounds.

The Spurs have waived Julian Washburn and Amida Brimah.

San Antonio just signed both Washburn and Brimah on Wednesday but the two players were never expected to make the big club. Most likely, both will play for the Spurs G-League affiliate.

The Spurs have signed Jaron Blossomgame to a training camp contract.

The Spurs drafted Blossomgame with the 59th overall pick in the 2017 draft. He spent last season in G-League and averaged 16.5 points and 8.1 rebounds, while shooting 55 percent from the field. The Spurs currently only have one player signed to a two-way contract, so it's possible he lands their second two-way deal.

The Spurs are signing 2015 draft pick Olivier Hanlan.

It will assuredly be a training camp deal and fantasy owners aren't likely to hear Hanlan's name after the first week of September.
Sep 20 - 6:57 PM

Julian Washburn and Amida Brimah have signed training camp contracts with the Spurs.

Neither of these guys are expected to make the team.
Sep 19 - 12:46 PM

Drew Eubanks has signed a two-way contract with the Spurs.

He originally had a training camp deal with the Spurs. The 6-foot-10 forward out of Oregon State will spend most of the 2018-19 season in the G-League, but will have up to 45 days of NBA eligibility.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw announced his retirement from basketball, writing on Twitter, "This is it... It was a good run."

Diaw signed in France last season because he wanted to "help guide and teach the young players." The 36-year-old was crowned MVP in France in 2004, before joining the NBA and being named Most Improved Player for 2006. He won a championship with the Spurs and played for five NBA franchises in his career, with his fantasy peak coming for Charlotte in 2010-11.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol said his health will determine whether he can plan for Spain in the FIBA World Cup next summer.

"I want to have the best possible regular season [in the NBA] and once I finish I will see how I am physically," he said. Pau said in April that he hopes to play professionally for "at least" 3-4 more years. It's an ambitious goal for the 38-year-old and he could limit wear-and-tear by skipping international competitions, but he doesn't have to make any decision until next offseason.
Sep 5 - 10:31 PM

Josh Huestis will join the Spurs for training camp.

He had been working out with the Spurs, so apparently the staff was encouraged with what they saw. Huestis has been terrific on defense at times, but consistency on the offensive end has never really been there.
Sep 5 - 6:28 PM

Free agent Josh Huestis has been working out with the Spurs this week.

He hasn't signed anything, to be clear. Huestis said earlier in the summer that he's eager to find the right role in the NBA, "[Even if] that’s somewhere I may get paid less but gives me that opportunity to get better." He's unlikely to provide fantasy value no matter where he lands.
Aug 30 - 5:51 PM

Chimezie Metu (wrist) has agreed to a three-year deal with the Spurs.

It's not common for a second-round pick to secure a three-year deal, but the Spurs are high on the former USC standout. He fractured his left wrist at Summer League in July, but he should be ready to go by the start of the 2018-19 season. We expect him to spend much of the year in the G-League.
Aug 30 - 10:12 AM

Quincy Pondexter has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Spurs.

Pondexter will bring some depth to the small forward spot in San Antonio, but he won't be on the floor enough to make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops.
Aug 27 - 6:32 PM

Manu Ginobili announced on Monday that he is retiring from the NBA.

Ginobili did a whole lot of winning during his NBA career, playing a key role on all four of the Spurs' championship teams in addition to leading the Argentinian National Team to gold during the 2004 Olympic Games. He's also just one of seven players to spend his entire career with one team while suiting up for at least 16 seasons, and he'll end his career with averages of 14.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game. The Hall of Fame seems likely for Mr. Ginobili. As for fantasy hoops, with him no longer around that should open up some more minutes for Derrick White.
