Offseason Salary Cap Digest: San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs haven’t had a winning percentage below .600 in a season for two decades, and the franchise added another cornerstone piece to its core when it signed LaMarcus Aldridge last summer. However, even after a 67-win showing, San Antonio will be faced with a challenging offseason. If Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and David West retire or land elsewhere, the Spurs will have some cap room to work with, but not enough for a max contract, and replacing those veterans won’t be easy. With Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard around, it’s not as if San Antonio will enter a rebuilding phase anytime soon, but keeping the team in strong contention for a title may require a little creativity from GM R.C. Buford.

I think there are also some cap holds that should be included for international first-round draftees.
