How does the San Antonio Spurs roster look one month before training camp starts?
The San Antonio Spurs will soon enter the 2018-19 season for another campaign towards the playoffs and a championship. Without Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Tony Parker and Kyle Anderson around, fans will see a different look at the AT&T Center, with new faces to replace them.
Near August’s end, there’s one month before training camp starts and just over four weeks until the preseason. With the regular season in the middle of October, the Spurs are set to go into full swing.
With time left before the season, how does the roster look? How many changes are there? Let’s take a look:
- LaMarcus Aldridge
- DeMar DeRozan
- Rudy Gay
- Dejounte Murray
- Pau Gasol
- Patty Mills
- Marco Belinelli
- Manu Ginobili
- Jakob Poeltl
- Bryn Forbes
- Davis Bertans
- Dante Cunningham
- Lonnie Walker
- Derrick White
It’s the first time since the 2000-01 season that San Antonio won’t have Parker on its roster. Instead, Murray and Mills are the team’s point guards, with White as a backup behind them.
The one spot that remains in question, Ginobili might retire before the 2018-19 season starts. It’s late into the offseason, but look for a decision within the next four weeks, before the Spurs round up their team for training camp.
With or without Ginobili, the Spurs have an open roster spot, due to the release of Brandon Paul. They can opt to not fill it, but if the Argentinian star departs, it’s conceivable to think they will sign someone to take his spot, potentially Chimezie Metu or Jaron Blossomgame.
Will the Spurs roster change before the 2018-19 season starts? If so, who could join the squad?
