San Antonio Spurs sign Jock Landale to 2-year deal
We can do 500 articles on free agency every summer and will still be surprised by signings -- it's the Spurs way. Late Tuesday night, Shams broke the news that the 2021 NBL Grand Final MVP, Jock Landale, would be signing with the Spurs next season.
As expected, Spurs fans everywhere began jumping down the rabbit hole on the newest acquisition online. From what I've seen, Jock looks pretty impressive. Standing at 6-11, he nailed 38.9 of his shots from the perimeter as Melbourne's starting center last season. That's a far cry from current centers Jakob Poeltl and Drew Eubanks.
Simply put, even from what little I know about Landale, I feel like he could be San Antonio's biggest signing this summer.
Toughness, stretch big abilities, and hunger are all missing in the Spurs' frontcourt, and Jock seems to have all of that. Spurs fans will get a good look at Landalde as Team Australia takes on Team USA Wednesday night/Thursday morning at 12:15 a.m. ET.
