Default spurs show once again why they are best

the best-run organization in the L. francicso elson for 6 mil=underrated signing of the summer. this cat can play. more than just a big body. although he's foul-prone, he has range and actually a pretty nice spot-up jumper, along with those loooong arms that provide stifling d. and jackie butler for what, 7 mil. and curry makes 60 mil? what a joke! GREAT moves by SA.

for 2 years. 3 mil a year. considering the penchant teams have to overpay for size, that is highway robbery.

not bad, Elson is a good player, and at that price, who cares what he does, it's a bargain

Has Denver said whether or not they will match?

Elson is an alright player. The Spurs have been winning with "alright" center since Robinson retired. Looks like they won't miss a beat.

they have 7 days, but karl said its "unlikely"....allow me to correct that..its impossible. we already have cambyman, kmart, nene, najara, kleiza, and reggie evans (if re-upped)....frontcourt overload.

This guy is a nobody, who cares if the Spurs sign him. His career highlight is KG touching his nuts. This is one of those transactions that you wonder why they bother listing in the NBA.com transactions page, they only make it harder to find the transactions that matters.

you're stupid, these are the kinds of moves that put teams over the top. scouts aren't paid to identify the AIs and MJs, they earn their money by digging up diamonds in the rough.

Not a bad move. But loosing Nazr and Rasho hurts more. As far as signing diamond in the rough big men for cheap moves go, I liked the move Dallas made last year with signing Diop for under 2 mill (but somehow I was still making fun of them for making it at the time).

no, you're stupid
the guy averages 5/5 (rounded up) and is older and has worst stats than Nazi in more minutes. The guy is also an average shot blocker for someone his size. Yea, you're right, Francisco Elson will put them over the top, watch out league, Francisco Elson and the Spurs = domination
