Exclamation Thomas eyes return to Spurs

Quote:
Kurt Thomas spent four months in San Antonio last season, just long enough to determine he'd like to come back for a second tour of duty with the Spurs.

Thomas also has been around the business of the NBA long enough to know he'd be best served to look around a bit before committing to that desire in writing.

Though it remains his preference to return to San Antonio next season, Thomas — an unrestricted free agent — said Monday he plans to investigate other opportunities before signing a new contract.

“Hopefully, things work out that way,” Thomas said of the possibility of re-signing with the Spurs. “That's the great thing about being a free agent. I get to weigh my options and decide what's best for me and my family.”

I'd like to see him back, hopefully we re-sign him, and we should also give Ian Mahimi some playing time this year. I've heard that Horry isn't coming back, so we could have Mahinmi replace him in our lineup (unless Bonner gets in the way and takes over the 4th spot in our inside rotation), and if we do that hopefully he can do well, maybe be a solid defender, a guy who could guard the David Wests of the league, the athletic bigs that we've had trouble with (think STAT too). Re-signing him doesn't count against our MLE, right?

Re-signing him won't make us get out in May, we just need to get a big in the starting lineup that can guard the athletic big men, if we can do that then we could still retain Thomas as a backup big man. He helps us more than anyone else we currently have outside of Duncan down low, we need to keep him on the roster, though hopefully as a backup.
