The already loaded San Antonio Spurs are reportedly eyeing free-agent-to-be Kevin Durant. While the reigning champion Golden State Warriors have received much attention for their plans to recruit Durant, the Spurs’ free-agency strategy has remained, as usual, quiet. But ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting San Antonio is just as interested as the Warriors in landing the 6-foot-11 sniper when free agency opens July 1.
“The Spurs … are said to have harbored similar fantasies for months in their famously stealthy manner,” Stein said. “As with Golden State, San Antonio won’t have close to max cap room to spend without a willingness to lose multiple members from its Boris Diaw/Danny Green/Patty Mills supporting cast. Yet you’ll recall how swiftly the Spurs jettisoned Tiago Splitter last summer when the opportunity arose to sign LaMarcus Aldridge.”
