The latest San Antonio Spurs news, notes and headlines for Monday, Nov. 20.

The San Antonio Spurs had a quiet weekend before Thanksgiving, with two off days and little-to-no news. This will change on Monday, with the first game of Week 6 against the Atlanta Hawks. It will be a home game at the AT&T Center.

Headlines still made their way around the weekend, however, that related to the Silver and Black. So, let’s take a look at the latest for Monday, Nov. 20.

  • Brandon Paul revealed his reaction to finding out the San Antonio Spurs signed him. This happened during the 2017 Summer League, resulting in a fully guaranteed contract for 2017-18 and 2018-19. Not bad for a player who didn’t appear in a regular season game, four years out of college.
  • Kevin Durant made comments to Bleacher Report about loyality, and how it “doesn’t exist” in the NBA. However, for the past 20 years, it has existed in the Spurs organization.
  • David Lee last played in the NBA for the San Antonio Spurs in the 2016-17 season. Afterward, he opted out of his contract for 2017-18, and didn’t sign with another organization. On Sunday, the 12-year veteran officially announced his retirement from the league.
  • The Spurs will play three games in Week 6 of the season. Before the action gets underway, we broke down what they will be up against.
  • In case you missed it, San Antonio defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, 104-101, on Friday, Nov. 17.
  • Pounding the Rock broke down the anatomy of a Kyle Anderson play.
  • Pounding the Rock also looked at how Danny Green has played the best basketball of his career this season. This includes his newfound ability to put the ball on the ground and drive to the rim.
