The biggest need heading into the new season is size on the San Antonio Spurs. Currently, the team only has Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter but after that, it's a considerable drop off. The team is undersized and can use some help in the paint.
And as training camp is well underway, Manu Ginobili says having Josh Powell and Eddy Curry on the roster is a huge help.
Whether Powell or Curry make the final roster remains to be seen but considering the squad needs help in the paint, it's not out of the realm of possibility one makes the team.
What about you Spurs fans? Do you agree with Manu? What do you feel about Powell and Curry?
