@Real Cowboys LMAO @ Contras and you may be right...but because the Eagles are so hated remember they do not have a 2nd this year and to take more of this years draft and next years 2 away might just bury them for a while....
yo.. you do not do your research.. the draft rumor page isnt @#$@... our gm has talked about how safety is the hardest thing to find.. so why would we pass on jalen when we are going to spend a bunch of money on our front seven (second highest cap space).
It's nice to have a draft order set and the Senior Bowl behind us (other all-star games, too, I suppose). The combine is the other big event of the offseason, so we really are halfway to the draft. Sort of.
PG: Tony Parker/Gary Neal/*Patrick Mills/Cory Joseph
NBA Free Agents:
C-Tim Duncan (UFA)
PF-Boris Diaw (UFA)
*SG-Daniel Green (RFA)
*PG-Patrick Mills (RFA)
2012-13 Team Salary: Approximately $58.2 million
NBA Offseason Needs:
1. Re-sign Duncan:
Despite all the miles on the 36-year old legs, Tim Duncan proved he is still a valuable asset due to his ability and maybe more importantly, his leadership. I would be shocked if he and the Spurs cannot agree on some sort of reasonable contract to keep the Big Fundamental in San Antonio. I doubt he makes anything close to the $21.3 million he raked in this past season, but this is one marriage that should never end.
2. More Size:
Even if Duncan is re-signed, the Spurs still need to add another post player. Boris Diaw proved to be a terrific mid-season pick-up, and I wouldn't be surprised if San Antonio tried to re-sign him at an affordable rate. If not, the Spurs need one more big body just in case Duncan begins to wear down a bit.
2011-12 Season Summary:
I keep waiting for the San Antonio Spurs to fall off the NBA map a bit. After getting bounced from the opening round by the Grizzlies last summer, I figured this might be the year that age catches up to the Spurs.
Instead, the team was right there in the end, finishing with the best record in the league, winning 20-straight games including a pair of playoff sweeps, and knocking on the door of another trip to the NBA Finals. Head coach Gregg Popovich and general manager R.C. Buford deserve a ton of credit for meshing a group of youngsters with their solid stable of veterans.
San Antonio Spurs (Last Year: 50-16)
Live 2012 NBA Draft Grades:
59. Marcus Denmon, G, Missouri: C Grade
I actually mocked this one correctly, which believe it or not, is really difficult to get a second-round pick right. This just seems like a Spurs-type pick since Denom plays hard, can contribute in a variety of ways, and could earn a spot on the roster.
