One player Spurs fans would love to see in Silver and Black is Marjanovic. The player many call “Boban” has become a fan favorite as he finished his first season with the Spurs. Marjanovic flashed his talent during 54 games in the NBA. He averaged 5.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and shot 60-percent from the floor.
The Spurs can make Marjanovic a restricted free agent by June 30 for $1.5 million giving San Antonio three days to match any offer he were to get from other teams interested in his services.

Good news for the Spurs and the fans if the rumor is true. At the young age of 27, there is still a lot of upside for Marjanovic to improve in his game. In three games with the Austin Spurs, he averaged 23.7 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. He has a soft touch around the rim and can be really effective as a rim protector on the defensive end as well.
Marjanovic earned $1.2 million with the Spurs last season, but when he becomes a free agent July 1, it will be his choice to either re-sign with the team or any team of his choosing.
Paul Garcia of Project Spurs breaks down the situation more, stating a chunk of what San Antonio’s salary situation will look like this summer rests on the decisions of Manu Ginobili, David West, and Tim Duncan, who all have player options.
