The NBA labor negotiations is still ongoing, that means Free Agency will be delayed if the league, as expected, imposes a lockout on July 1.
The San Antonio Spurs made a bold move during draft day, addressing their need to add depth at the small forward spot as well as getting important pieces for the future.
However, the team needs to add a quality big man to shore up their frontline, adding more size and length is a must for the Spurs to seriously contend for a title next season (whenever it starts).
Here is a list of some free agent big man the Spurs might want consider.
(Player name, Team, Position, Height – Status)
David West, New Orleans Hornets, PF, 6-foot-9 – Unrestricted
West, who had reconstructive surgery April 12, will opt out of the final year of his contract with the Hornets, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
West, who has been rehabbing his injury twice daily, must be feeling pretty good about the prognosis of his knee in the long-term, as he is walking away from $7.5 million. In any case, while a return to the Hornets via an extension is not out of the question, it is his intention to test free agency. Early speculation has the Pacers and Nets listed as potential suitors.
