San Antonio Spurs Roster 2021 San Antonio Spurs Roster

9-8, 1st in West Southwest

San Antonio has a lot of young guards that will need to be thinned out at some point, and they are still hanging onto older names like Rudy Gay and LaMarcus Aldridge. Dejounte Murray and Lonnie Walker are two young guns who should get a lot of minutes on this roster. Keldon Johnson has also taken a step forward this year and will get plenty of time to adjust, given the Spurs are still in a rebuild. This roster should see a few trades before the season is over, especially with the older role players they have.

2021 San Antonio Spurs Roster Top Questions

What moves did the Spurs make in free agency?

First, and arguably most important for the Spurs, was the resigning of Rudy Gay for two years. Gay could have chosen to play the market that was flooded with cash this offseason, but instead him and the Spurs were able to quickly get a deal done, which makes a ton of sense for both sides. There weren't a ton of moves made outside of this, which was to be expected by the Spurs. They signed guard Quinndary Weatherspoon to a two-way contract, so he should be spending time in the G-league. Finally, after a slew of moves made to get to this point including trading Davis Bertans, the Spurs got forward DeMarre Carroll from the Wizards and agreed on a two-year contract with him.

What should we expect from DeMar DeRozan this year?

While it definitely feels like the Spurs got the short end of the stick with the DeRozan/Leonard deal, DeRozan actually produced very well for the Spurs last season. As evidenced by the stark differences between the Raptors when DeRozan was their guy as opposed to when Kawhi was, DeRozan ins't able to command a team quite like Kawhi. He was shooting the three ball more, but not necessarily in an effective way as he averaged just 15.6% from beyond the arc last year. If he can work on his three point shot in the offseason, it'll add a whole new dimension to his game as off the dribble he's almost impossible to stop. He gets up to the basket in a way not many can, and has a way of just getting looks to convert. I think we could see a big year form him as he continues to get settled in to San Antonio.

How much longer will Gregg Popovich be the coach of the Spurs?

There was speculation from many that the 2018/19 campaign would be Pop's last rodeo. That no longer appears to be the case as it's shaping up to be another Popovich coached Spurs team this year. While nothing is certain, there has been a report by Adrian Wojnarowski that Pop and the Spurs could be agreeing on a 3-year contract sometime soon which would take him to the 2021/22 season. It's worth noting that this comes after the 2020 Olympics which many believed would be Popovich's last dance. Even if they do agree to this contract, Pop could still opt out if he changes his mind. AS of now, there isn't a definitive answer to when Pop will b e done coaching, but we can all assume it won't be too much longer, as he will be turning 71 in January.
