Everyone in SA wants him back? Not Pop and RC.

It's Spurs or retirement and more than likely it's retirement.

Bowen is definitely going to have his jersey retired in the AT&T Center.

two-time runner up for DPOY (05,06 I believe lost to Wallace both times)
5x all-defensive first team
3x all-defensive second team
3x champion
500 consecutive games played between 2002 and 2008 (300+ starts)

assuming their contracts were the same, I'd take him over d. george 10/10 times. Averages more minutes, plays more games, and is the better defender... even at 38.

I also agree that it's retirement or going back to the spurs for Bowen. He's grounded in San Antonio, with family, business, and his foundation. I've heard other teams are interested (Orlando) but I don't think he takes it.

That's what I was thinking. I think that by trading these three guys (Fab, Thomas, Bruce) we are sending a message across that the last two seasons, we haven't been able to get the job done and we are turning another page in our franchises history. The team at this point is trying to get younger and more athletic which we have done with for the most part with our signings so far this summer, but also adding some veterans to replace the ones we lost. Even if he did come back to the Spurs, he would have to challenge RJ and Finley for playing time at the 3 spot. At this point, I'm thinking 70% chance he heads to retirement/ another team for the vets minimum.

Malik Hairston too. he's definitely a part of the youth movement. was signed the first day of free agency, played 15 games with the spurs last season. could be a cheaper, more athletic, Bowen replacement. he can slash, has potential to be a good defender, and has range like Bowen. had a good showing in the summer league, with 13.4 ppg/.53 FG% in 5 games. For the spurs D-League team he was putting up 23/6/4 on good percentages (41 mpg, 30 gms)... On the Spurs he'll be just another role player, but possibly one that pushes Bowen out of the rotation.

I like Hairston, but I want to know if the coaching staff decides to play him at the 3 or as more of a 2-guard.

The Spurs have a full roster. With the Lux tax they would cost them too much but I would like to see him come back.

the Lakers still have their Vet Min.
Bowen would be solid for spot duty against guys like Melo & Lebron.

Bowen has said he'd never entertain the idea of signing with Dallas or LA. Seriously. He's dead serious.
