    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — San Antonio drafted Florida State guard Devin Vassell with the No. 11 pick Wednesday night in the NBA draft. A 6-foot-6 guard who spent two years with the Seminoles, Vassell averaged 12.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists last season. He shot 41% on 3-pointers with Florida State. It was the highest San Antonio has drafted since selecting Tim Duncan with No. 1 pick in 1997. Vassell joins a roster that has transformed from one that relied heavily on veterans for two decades to a team that is counting on its young players to turn its fortunes around. San Antonio failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 1997, the season prior to drafting...

    The San Antonio Spurs own the No. 11 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. With a rebuild on the horizon, here are five young guys they can prioritize. For the first time in 23 years, the San Antonio Spurs failed to qualify for the playoffs. The Kawhi Leonard trade two years ago signaled that this era of Spurs basketball was coming to an end; now the end has come. Sticking to the theme of upside, we now shift to a perimeter player the Spurs could covet. Tyrese Maxey has a motley of outcomes projected for his NBA career: a plug-and-play guard for a contender; a talented scorer with the mentality to fight through adversity; an overly confident sparkplug whose...
    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs have promoted assistant coach Mitch Johnson to fill the position vacated by former star Tim Duncan. Duncan, the Spurs’ all-time leader in points, rebounds and blocked shots — and the only player to be on all five of San Antonio’s NBA championship teams — joined the team as an assistant coach in July 2019. He had worked off and on the previous three seasons with San Antonio’s post players following his retirement. Duncan was not expected to be a longtime assistant for Gregg Popovich, who still has Will Hardy, Becky Hammon and Chip Engelland as veteran assistants, along with newly promoted Darius Songaila. Johnson was named an assistant coach with the...
    Despite missing the playoffs last season, the San Antonio Spurs still haven’t shown strong indication that they are already planning to undergo a full-scale rebuild this offseason. With Coach Gregg Popovich at the helm, there remains a huge possibility that, instead of focusing on the development of their young players, the Spurs will try to build a more competitive roster that would increase their chances of returning to the postseason next year. One of the potential trade targets for the Spurs this fall is All-Star power forward Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to Grant Hughes of Bleacher Report, the Spurs could acquire Love by sending a package that includes LaMarcus Aldridge and Keldon Johnson to the Cavaliers. Though...

    SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, has sided with Democrat Joe Biden for this year’s presidential election. In an ad aired by The Lincoln Project, Popovich said he’s voting for Biden because “a vote for Donald Trump is a vote against the very ideals upon which our democracy was founded.” “Our democracy is at stake,” the basketball legend said in the video that was released on Thursday.

With the NBA entering its offseason, coach Gregg Popovich is going to go for a rebuild to put the Spurs back in the race for the championship. And according to trade rumors, DeMar DeRozan might be the veteran player up for the trade, as he was speculated to be unhappy with the Spurs. But looks like DeMar disagrees. Even when the Toronto Raptors traded DeMar, he expressed that he wasn’t happy with that decision. Despite being loyal, they traded him off. Although DeMar performed decently this season, he hasn’t been able to fit very well with the Spurs. With just one...

    The highly-anticipated return of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to the court is expected to make the Brooklyn Nets one of the heavy favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals next year. However, it’s also set to negatively affect and slow down the development of some of their young players, including Caris LeVert. Though some people view him as the third star in Brooklyn, LeVert will likely have a hard time making himself fit in a team that has two ball-dominant superstars on their roster. To unleash his full superstar potential, Grant Hughes of Bleacher Report believes that LeVert is better off being traded to a team where he can be the No. 1 option on the...

    After five seasons with the San Antonio Spurs, there could be a chance of veteran big man LaMarcus Aldridge returning to the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2020 offseason and helping boost an offense currently led by the backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, a recent report suggested. As explained by Bleacher Report‘s Andy Bailey on Thursday in a list of top landing spots for this offseason’s leading trade targets, signing Aldridge to a multiyear extension was arguably the biggest mistake the Spurs had made in the lead-up to the 2019-20 campaign, where they missed the playoffs for the first time in 22 years. Although the 35-year-old has produced good numbers on paper since moving to San Antonio,...
    Since the 2019 offseason, the Brooklyn Nets have been active on the trade market, searching for their third superstar. Though they are yet to see their roster at its full strength, the Nets believe that they need more star power around Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in order to have a better chance of fully dominating the Eastern Conference and winning the NBA championship title next year. One of the teams who could express interest in helping the Nets this fall is the San Antonio Spurs. With the team likely heading into an inevitable rebuild, the Nets would be an ideal trade partner for the Spurs. According to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, the Nets and the Spurs may consider...
    When the 2019-20 NBA season is officially over, veteran shooting guard DeMar DeRozan will be needing to decide whether he will opt into the final year of his contract with the San Antonio Spurs or not. With the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic to the entire league, most people are expecting DeRozan to pick up his $27.7 million option for the 2020-21 NBA season and test the free agency market in the summer of 2021. However, regardless of his impending decision, it seems like DeRozan’s departure from San Antonio this fall is inevitable. In his recent article, Jabari Young of CNBC talked about the Spurs, including their plan for DeRozan in the 2020 offseason. If he chooses to opt...
    Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio SpursGetty Images Fire Gregg Popovich. It's the first thing one NBA executive said he would do if given the challenge of taking over one of the most successful franchises in the National Basketball Association. The long-time Spurs coach led the team to five NBA titles, and the franchise's 22-year playoff run concluded only recently, due in part to the coronavirus pandemic. At 1,277 wins, Popovich is the third-winningest coach in NBA history.  So, fire Popovich?  Andy Dolich, the Memphis Grizzlies' former president, laughed when told about the executive's first move. He called it a "knee jerk reaction." Instead, Dolich suggested a "deep look at the organization" to identify areas of improvement. "That's how real...
    San Antonio Spurs’ coach Gregg Popovich said during an interview last week that he was “thrilled” Austin voted to cut a third of the city’s police budget, called President Trump “obviously racist” and gave a brief history lesson on voter suppression in America. Popovich, a candid Trump critic, spoke to reporters in his final pregame media availability of the season Thursday while wearing a black T-shirt with white lettering that read, “Vote, your life depends on it." IT'S OVER: FOR FIRST TIME IN 23 SEASONS SPURS MISS PLAYOFFS After Popovich brought up recent social justice issues, a KENS-TV reporter asked the coach about his feelings on the Austin City Council’s decision to slash its police budget by about a third, or $150...

    San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich once again used his press availability to launch into politics instead of basketball, as he heaped praise upon Austin, Texas, after their recent vote to defund the police. The coach then went on a rant about how “racist” Trump is because of what Popovich thinks is “voter suppression.” During his comments, Popovich waxed ecstatic that the City of Austin is moving to slash a third of its police department budget and added that he hopes his hometown of San Antonio would do the same, according to San Antonio’s KENS Channel 5. Popovich was asked about the police defunding issue and used his answer to call Trump a “racist.” The virulently left-wing coach said defunding...
    SAN ANTONIO – It’s been an incredible playoffs run for the Spurs, but as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end.

    Gregg Popovich will likely be back with the Spurs next season. The San Antonio Spurs, who picked up five championships over the last two decades thanks to Gregg Popovich’s über-consistent style of coaching, will not be in the playoffs in 2020, as their porous defense that ranked 25th in the NBA wasn’t good enough to make it to the postseason. Despite rumblings that this could be it for Popovich in San Antonio, he seems to think he’ll be back in 2020. Popovich all but confirmed that he will return as Spurs coach in 2020-21, asking “why not?” when questioned on if he’ll stick around following a subpar 2019-20 season.

    Gregg Popovich trolled the hell out of reporters asking about the San Antonio Spurs’ playoff streak. Heading into Thursday’s batch of NBA seeding games, the San Antonio Spurs needed some help to earn a spot in the league’s play-in scenario. In addition to a win over the Utah Jazz, the Spurs needed two losses from the Memphis Grizzlies-Phoenix Suns-Portland Trail Blazers trio competing for those same play-in spots. Unfortunately, with Memphis and Phoenix both winning, the Spurs were eliminated from play-in contention before their game against Utah even started. San Antonio wound up losing with nothing to play for, falling to 5-3 in the bubble, but what everyone was fixated on was the team’s historic 22-year streak of making the...

There has also been some talk of both stars getting traded for each other, with the latest such recommendation suggesting that the Spurs acquire both Gordon and veteran forward Al-Farouq Aminu in exchange for DeRozan. As detailed by Bleacher Report‘s Andy Bailey on Wednesday, it would be advisable for DeRozan to pick up his $27.7 million option for the 2020-21 campaign, considering how the coronavirus pandemic has affected the NBA’s financial outlook and how San Antonio appears to play better when he’s...

    NBA basketball has officially made its return with teams beginning to take part in scrimmages this week at the league’s bubble venue in Orlando, Florida. To that end Thursday’s bout between the San Antonio Spurs and the Milwaukee Bucks took on greater significance as Spurs assistant and WNBA legend Becky Hammon acted as San Antonio’s head coach for the contest. Meanwhile, a masked Gregg Popovich — who has directed the Spurs to five championships, 22 postseason appearances and nearly 1,300 regular season wins since becoming the team’s coach in 1996 — manned the sidelines as an assistant. Ahead of the game, NBA.com’s Michael C. Wright reported via Twitter that the Spurs will be rotating coaches for the three exhibition games...
