Spurs cut Stoudamire, Watkins and Green. Who's next?
I was unhappy to hear that Salim was cut. I expected him to make the team and be a new three point threat, but it seems the Spurs couldn't overlook his injuries. Watkins I knew wouldn't make the team. He is a big athletic guy, but turns the ball over way too much. I didn't see Green play much, but I guess he wasn't what the Spurs were looking for.
The Spurs roster strands at 16 players. Which means that most likely, the last cut will be between Malik Hairston and Desmond Farmer.
Both these guys have played well for the Spurs and it is going to be a tough decision. From what I've seen, Farmer has been pretty consistently productive on the offensive end, which is something the Spurs need. After struggling in the Summer League, Malik Hairston has improved in the preseason and really shown the Spurs what he has got.
This is going to be a risky decision. I feel Hairston has the potential to be a good player possibly in a year or two. Farmer seems like he could provide for us now. So, I think this decision is going to depend on what the Spurs want: future potential or productivity right now.
I can't even chose between the two.
