Default Francisco Elson

He can rebound, block shots, runs the floor very well, and he has a decent perimeter shot for a 7-footer. So a good signing by Spurs Management.

solid signing by the Spurs, will provide veteran leadership and depth on the team. He will probably mentor Jackie Butler. He will fit in nicely

Default .

i think he could really help the spurs high/low game. elson has some range and if he can draw the opponents center out to the freethrow line it would widely open the lane for manu, tony and finley.
