Current Spurs Roster Status

As expected, the San Antonio Spurs were not involved in too much action during the offseason, with the team opting to continue working on the talent pool they currently have internally.

San Antonio did not make any trades during the break, and they also signed just one free agent. This came in the form of 24-year-old Keita Bates-Diop, who signed a two-way contract with the Spurs.

The team lost a number of guys during the offseason. A couple of players left via free agency, with Marco Belinelli opting to take his talents abroad while Bryn Forbes signed with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Spurs also decided to waive the services of Tyler Zeller and Chimezi Metu.

As mentioned earlier, San Antonio focused most of its energy internally. There were a number of contracts that required renewals, and the Spurs front office made sure to do just that.

For starters, the Spurs dug deep into their pockets to extend the deal of 6-foot-4 combo guard Derrick White. After a breakout 2019-20 campaign, San Antonio rewarded the fourth-year guard with a lucrative extension worth $70 million for four years.

The Spurs acted accordingly with Jakob Poeltl, who also established himself as a key player for coach Gregg Popovich last season. San Antonio wanted to keep him on board for the long haul, and it will cost them $26.3 million over the next three years.

Drew Eubanks, who averaged 4.9 points and 3.9 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per game last season, also penned an extension amounting to $5.3 million for three years.

Much of San Antonio's success this season will rely heavily on one man: DeMar DeRozan. The four-time All-Star had another memorable campaign with the Spurs in 2019-20, and over the offseason, the 31-year-old exercised his $27.7 million player option for 2020-21.

It is worth noting that DeRozan is currently on an expiring deal, with the two-time All-NBA team member set to enter free agency in the summer. It will be interesting to see if the Spurs offer him an extension during the season, or if they opt to get some value from him by trading him away. Whichever direction they decide to take, the last thing they want is for DeRozan to walk away for nothing in the summer.

Finally, the Spurs drafted 6-foot-5 shooting guard Devin Vassell with the 11th overall pick. The former Florida State standout will look to provide some depth in coach Pop's backcourt. San Antonio also brought on 6-foot-1 point guard Tre Jones as the 41st overall pick.

San Antonio enters the season with a starting five of Dejounte Murray, Keldon Johnson, DeRozan, Lonnie Walker, and LaMarcus Aldridge. Key players coming off the bench include Patty Mills, Rudy Gay, and Derrick White.

san antonio spurs Team Analysis

Who Did The Spurs Recently Sign?

The most recent addition to the San Antonio Spurs' roster is 25-year-old forward Keita Bates-Diop. Bates-Diop, who plays at the three and four positions, signed a two-way contract prior to the start of the 2020-21 NBA Season which means he's also eligible to play for the Austin Spurs, San Antonio's G-League affiliate.

Who Are The Spurs Targeting In Free Agency?

The San Antonio Spurs are looking to inject some more youth into their roster and this could be at the expense of starting center LaMarcus Aldridge. The 35-year-old star is poised to be an unrestricted free agent after this season, which means the Spurs might need to move him before the season ends if they want to get someone in return for their 7-time All-Star. The team has been linked with younger bigs like Julius Randle of the New York Knicks or Myles Turner of the Indiana Pacers. They ended up re-signing backup bigs in Jakob Poeltl and Drew Eubanks, but if the Spurs want a decent shot at being playoff contenders again, they need a solid superstar to lead their frontcourt.

Who Did The Spurs Most Recently Trade For?

The most recent trade the San Antonio Spurs made was still back in July 2019 when they were part of a three-team deal with the Washington Wizards and the Brooklyn Nets. The Spurs shipped out shooter Davis Bertans to the Wizards and Nemanja Dangubic to the Nets and got DeMarre Carroll in exchange. The team eventually waived Carroll in February 2020.

What Is The Best Spurs Roster Of All-Time?

The 2013-14 San Antonio Spurs had arguably the best roster in franchise history. Hungry from a tough 7-game series loss against the Miami Heat in the 2013 NBA Finals, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili led the Spurs to an incredible 62-20 regular-season record. It was also the same season where a young Kawhi Leonard blossomed into a superstar, stealing the show in their rematch against the Heat in the 2014 NBA Finals where he won his first Finals MVP trophy. The Spurs dominated the Heat and won in 5 games, denying Miami a three-peat. In that lineup, the Spurs also had the services of international stars Patty Mills, Marco Belinelli, Boris Diaw, and Thiago Splitter, who were all key contributors. Plus, they had other steady guards like Danny Green and Cory Joseph in the mix.

What Is The Spurs' Salary Cap?

For the 2020-21 NBA season, the salary cap for the San Antonio Spurs is currently at $131,616,175 (via Spotrac). This number currently puts them around $22 million over the league's allowable maximum cap at $109,140. Two of their starters account for a huge chunk in the team's salary cap in DeMar DeRozan ($27 million) and LaMarcus Aldridge ($24 million).
