well jackie butler iam really excited about because he has alot of potential and is coming at half the price. if he can put up similar numbers as nazr and block a few shots ill be happy with his production.
francisco elson i think was brought in to play along side tim when we go small. he is capable of hitting outside shots and is fast enough to run up and down the floor. also will need him to step up his rebounding and blocking but i think his man purpose will be to play against teams like phx and dallas who play uptempo.
Jackie Butler is just a pimp . Nah seriously Butler showed the potential in New York (albeit in few minutes) that he can be a decent contributor in the pts/rebs column. Like stated earlier by previous posters Elson runs the floor well for a big man, can block shots, and has a decent outside stroke. This also helps the spurs financially in the futre.
No way, what are you talking about. The Spurs dont have ANY advantage against any team except maybe the Knicks at the center spot. Rasual Butler will not fit in with the Spurs complicated offense. Horrible move by the Spurs.
