Say what you want about Danny. At least we don't have these kind of useless parts on our bench for big money.

    Funny that I have seen plenty of post around here wanting to trade for at least 5 of these guys.

    Don't agree with Gasol........Walton, Brandon Roy, Bynum...........why aren't they on the list?

    Joe Johnson should be on that list. I think DWill too. Basically every Brookyln player not named Brook Lopez

    I think the worst contract on our books right now is 6.5M for BBass which is really not bad at all for a starting PF (though he should be a bench guy). 

     

    Does anyone else think that Jeff Green would have taken the NBA by storm his 2nd year (last year) as  Celtic similar to Paul George if not for the heart surgery?

     

    If you think of guys who can reasonably match up against Lebron in our conference ... Green, George, Smith maybe Deng? Point is, Jeff was a steal to lockdown for 4 years at 9M

    THe only thing that I thought Danny did wrong with Jeff, was that he did not sign him earlier.  If I recall Jeff's agent could have become pissed off during the contract prolonged work-out.  And perhaps he could have run to Washington to see if they would gamble on a big contract.

    Now let's see Danny has aquired 

    1. RR- 27 yrs old- signed 2 more years and Danny gave just cash

     2. Bradley - 22 yrs old- signed next year - got him for 19th pick -  Danny was laughed at last year when he said Bradley had top 5 talent.  Not so funny now. 

    3. Sully--21 yrs old- signed for 3 more years- got him for 21st pick.  He didn't drop in draft only because he would likely need a disk removed, but also because his lack of lift may mean he wouldn't make it in NBA-  The doubters were wrong and Danny was right.

    4. Jeff- 27 yrs old -  signed 3 more years - aquired for the 27th pick (Perkins after Danny had already gotten half of Perk's use)

    What GM has done better with less?

    Spurs

    Tony Parker: 28th pick

    Manu Ginobili: 28th pick...of the 2ND ROUND

    DeJuan Blair: 7th pick of the 2nd round

    Kawhi Leonard: flipped George Hill for him after he was taken 15th by Pacers. Hill was a 26th pick previously

    Danny Green: picked 46th overall, then waived by the Cavs and picked up by SA..waived again, and picked up by them yet again.

    Matt Bonner: 16th pick in the second round. Spurs got him and another guy and a 2nd round pick for Nesterovic.

    Tiago Splitter: 28th pick overall

    Boris Diaw: Originally drafted 21st overall, signed by spurs after the Bobcats released him.

    Stephen Jackson: originally drafted 14th in the 2nd round, like Diaw was a known commodity when they got him from the warriors in a bad contract deal for Rich Jefferson

    Cory Joseph: #29 overall

    Patty Mills: #25 in the second round by Portland, signed with the Spurs after playing in China During the lockout.

    Gary Neal and Aron Baynes were signed as undrafted FA's

    And as we all know Tim Duncan was taken #1 overall....but other than him, the highest drafted player is at # 15, and they only had to trade Hill for him.

    They either used their own "bad" draft picks, took guys off the scrap heap, or traded next to nothing (Jefferson was washed up by that point) to put together a team that is now 47-14...not too shabby.

    All that being said, what the Spurs have done is absolutely uncanny. As far as regular GM's are concerned, DA hasn't done a terrible job. I really think they should have completely blown it up last season myself, but going this way, he's done really well.

    In response to jgallag1's comment:Excellent analysis jgallag-- thanks for the thorough and accurate response.  If Danny is second to that, he is doing a nice ob.
