With all the signings and trades that have taken place in the last couple of weeks, how good are the San Antonio Spurs now?

Well, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green are returning to the team, Tony Parker isn’t going anywhere, Kawhi Leonard is signing a max contract, David West joined the roster and most notably, LaMarcus Aldridge is a part of the Spurs family.

Patty Mills, Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner and Kyle Anderson are coming back. San Antonio recently drafted Nikola Milutinov and Cady Lalanne, and the franchise recently picked up Ray McCallum from the Sacramento Kings to bolster the roster.

Things are seemingly coming together exactly how the Spurs wanted it to, and it appears that the 2015-16 season will be a treat to watch—especially with this improved lineup.

Gregg Popovich will continue to utilize his roster to play the style of basketball that works best with his system. The new additions—Aldridge and West—will soon understand Pop’s wisdom and what Spurs basketball is all about: a strong worth ethic in the gym, dedication and determination.

This season, the Spurs are poised to again show why they deserve to be considered a top contender in the NBA.
