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.

You mock the Spurs Denmon. You call it a steal in your mock. And it gets a C grade? I don't follow.

So the Spurs go into the draft with the #29 pick and come out of it with their SF of the future, a high-upside PG, and a sweet-shooting combo forward who will be a key member of the rotation by 2014...another day at the office for San Antonio. How do they make it look so easy?

First comment... we're going to have comment boards like this all over the site soon. We're still working out the kinks, so this is not the finished product.

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.

2012-13 Projected Depth Chart:

C: Tiago Splitter

PF: DeJuan Blair/Matt Bonner

SF: Kawhi Leonard/Stephen Jackson/Derrick Byars

SG: *Daniel Green/Manu Ginobli/James Anderson

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.
