San Antonio Spurs: Best and Worst Off-Season Moves
By Anthony Groves: Hoopstuff Writer…
Best: Signing Marco Belinelli
This is one of the most underrated moves of this off-season. Last season, he shot 39%, in an offense that struggled without their floor general, but he did shoot 36% from three, so he helped their floor spacing. Belinelli’s playing style is perfect for the Spurs’...

When Metta World Peace was searching for a team to sign with after being amnestied by L.A., he briefly considered signing with the disciplined and boring San Antonio Spurs.
Wow, I can only imagine World Peace and Popovich interacting on the bench, but according to reports, it almost happened.
According Project Spurs via Daniel Artest, World Peace...

The San Antonio Spurs signed Jeff Pendergraph, a scantly utilized 6-foot-9 power forward, at the behest of former Indiana Pacers assistant Jim Boylen. Pendergraph will net $3.58 million over the next two seasons, despite appearing in just 96 games through four seasons. (A torn right ACL undercut his entire 2010-11 season.)
Boylen worked closely with the bruising 26-year...
NEVER TOO LATE
Metta World Peace has bounced around the league, but he's never played for the Spurs. It sounds like Gregg Popovich wishes Metta had.
With one vacant spot remaining on the San Antonio Spurs' current roster, there are already many rumored candidates for the position such as Greg Oden, Deshaun Thomas, Antawn Jamison, and Mo Williams.
You can now add guard Bobby Brown to the rumored list as well as Marc Berman of the New York Post indicated Thursday.
San Antonio and Memphis are also interested in Brown...

San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili was in South America with Basketball Without Borders in his home country of Argentina and recently even put his coaching hat on to help young players.
While part of the tour, Ginobili took time out to talk about the upcoming FIBA Americas Championship and qualifying for the 2014 World Cup with Argentinian site telam.com.
People say that a leopard doesn’t change its spots.
Coach Gregg Popovich has long been known for trusting young players like non-Catholics trusted the Spanish Inquisition. Come playoff time, young players have been known to have a nice warm seat on the end of the bench watching “the Big Three” of Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker carry the team.
In his two...
The Philadelphia 76ers are the lone NBA team that has still yet to hire a head coach. While new reports have surfaced about the candidates still in contention, San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown has been rumored to be one of the favorites since last month.

The San Antonio Spurs have one roster spot left heading into next season and it possibly could be filled by center Greg Oden. There has been numerous reports linking the Spurs (among other teams) as possibly Oden's next stop in his NBA career.
Reports state the Pelicans and Heat are the frontrunners, however, the Spurs are still in the mix for the big man's services...
Crazy, how the most insane NBA players are always wanted on the top NBA teams. I don't know what it is, maybe it is their swagger, their demeanor, or even the toughness they bring to the court. I just see them as train wrecks that bring their teams to the ground (look at what happened to JR Smith after he elbowed Jason Terry). As for Metta World Peace, to me, has played a little...
The San Antonio Spurs, four months removed from a jarring loss in the seventh game of the NBA Finals, will return to the AT&T Center for a preseason tune up against Russian powerhouse CSKA Moscow on Oct. 9.
