SPURS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Tough To Find A Harder Worker Than Spurs’ Green

Nobody has questioned Danny Green’s work ethic since he rose from D-League rotation piece to Spurs’ starter and NBA Champion. It’s what earned him a new 4-year $40 million deal (less than originally reported, very team friendly regardless) with San Antonio this summer.

Report: Deshaun Thomas will accept San Antonio Spurs tender if offered

According to David Pick, he'll go to training...

Spurs believe Ray McCallum can be key player this year

The San Antonio Spurs splashed themselves across headlines this summer after signing LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard to max contracts, then bringing Danny Green and Tim Duncan back below their market value and adding David West for the price of a tuna salad sandwich. But one of the more important deals they made might be a trade.

Will Jimmer Fredette find success with Spurs?

Jimmer Fredette If Jimmer Fredette doesn’t make it with the San Antonio Spurs, then he probably won’t make it in the NBA. But I, for one, think he’s on the verge of turning his career around. I understand if you want to take that with a grain of salt coming from an alumnus of BYU, but the reality is that Jimmer has more than enough talent to succeed in the NBA, especially...

How a Spurs assistant went all-out for LaMarcus Aldridge

    Most of the reasons LaMarcus Aldridge signed with the San Antonio Spurs are obvious — the best coach in the NBA, a tradition of winning, a chance to contend for a championship immediately while play alongside at least one future Hall of Famer.

Kyle Anderson is set to (slowly) become a star for Spurs

“Modern day Magic Johnson.” Those were the words that legendary St. Anthony’s High School basketball coach Bob Hurley used to describe his All-American senior Kyle Anderson in 2012.   I played high school basketball in New Jersey too; I watched Anderson play half a dozen times, and we competed in the same summer league for two years.
