Most of the free-agent market has passed us by, but the San Antonio Spurs still have a roster spot and a bit of cap space to fill and solid options remain.
It’s not unusual to see the San Antonio Spurs wait for the initial free-agent rush to pass. Once the moratorium was raised, the vast majority of the league’s vacant roster spots were filled. Nearly every team added a new player, but the Spurs seem to be running it back with the same group as usual. They went 1-for-3 in their previous free agency class with DeMarre Carroll failing to materialize and Marcus Morris Sr. pulling out of his agreement.
This year, San Antonio seems to be ready to stand pat, but there’s no downside to taking a shot on a new player. They already decided they’re interested enough in Cameron Reynolds, their latest Exhibit-10 contract recipient. Gauging talent and maximizing opportunities are essential to the San Antonio Spurs’ wheelhouse.
Don’t get me wrong — there are plenty of valuable players still out there. It’d be completely unsurprising to see Bryn Forbes and Marco Belinelli find new homes on short-term, low-cost contracts. However, they seem to have run their course by this point and it’s time for general manager Brian Wright to pivot with his remaining cap space.
These players are prepared to contribute to a lineup in positions of need during the 2019-20 season.
