The NBA free agency is in overdrive today and the San Antonio Spurs have been reportedly right in the thick of things.
Throughout the day, the Spurs have been linked with several free agents and now TNT's David Aldridge is reporting San Antonio is among several teams interested in center Zaza Pachilia.
Milwaukee, Portland, San Antonio join Hawks as suitors for Zaza Pachulia, per source. Pachulia recovery from Achilles surgery on schedule.

With this report on Pachulia and with the Spurs reportedly interested in acquiring center Marcin Gortat, one has to wonder if this is a sign that the team will not be able to re-sign current free agent Tiago Splitter. Splitter did have a great regular season, increasing his overall numbers and proving to be effective in the running the pick-and-roll but a lackluster performance in the postseason may be hurting his chances at getting a bigger deal with the Spurs.
Pachulia, although coming off surgery, is much more physical in the paint and isn't afraid to get in a player's face. Ask Kevin Garnett.
In other news, Aldridge is reporting the Spurs and free agent Manu Ginobili are not rushing things at trying to reach a new deal.
Talks between Spurs, Manu Ginobili not likely for several days, per sources. No rush on either side.

I don’t know if the Argentinian Mafia is still holding Manu’s family hostage, but I know one of the reasons (there are more than a few) the Spurs aren’t celebrating their 5th championship was because of his turnovers, especially in games 6 and 7.
But, it is a new season next year and he will be back.

Watching the 2012-13 Boston Celtics get gutted like a freshly caught trout got me thinking about when does a team know it is time to dismantle the pieces that have brought them glory and titles.
Some teams (Bulls, current Celtics) have chosen the path of trading their aging superstars while they still have value to get younger assets, while others (1980s Lakers, Pistons and...
