he only signed a 1 year deal and the spurs did not resign him so he is technically a free agent. he also hinted that last year would have been his last so i doubt he will return.

he never said it officially but he was hinting when he was on the spurs that last year could possibly be his last...after the spurs did not choose to resign him and him not getting on another team, i think he just decided to call it quits.

so i guess that this means that Jacque Vaughn is the team's back-up point. i haven't heard much about Beno Udrih this pre-season & checking the site it reveals that he hasn't even played a single pre-season game ( he is hurt). i still would have liked nick on the team. having that kind of experience is important in the locker room.

at this point in time, it does appear that vaughn will be the primary backup. beno has been a dissappoint thus far with his on going injuries. the only reason why he is still with us is because of his low contract. pop has become frustrated with him, so i expect beno to be back, play a few games to raise his stock a little bit, and then be involved in a mid season trade.

i found this on the rumors page:

"The Heat has spoken to agents for several veteran point guards (including 34-year-old Nick Van Exel), but prefers someone younger. . . . Antoine Walker, who needs to get in better shape, has no plans to reduce his three-point attempts (unlike Gary Payton) but wants to add ``an in-between game -- dribble, pump fake, take one step.'' Miami Herald

so he is gone with no chance of the spurs resigning him.

as for beno, i like the player but he is erractic with his play (just like most young point guards in the L). vaughn is better choice to play behind parker though only because you know what your're going to get from him. he's a point who won't make mistakes but @ the same time won't be a game-changer for the spurs. but i'm thinking that this suits Pop just fine.
