The Spurs need help at the three — starter Kawhi Leonard is out at least another week with tendonitis in his knee, then last night his backup, Stephen Jackson, broke the little finger on his shooting hand and is out at least a month.

The Spurs have called up James Anderson from the D-League but they are looking for more veteran help, too, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.

 

Pietrus has been stubborn about not taking the league minimum to the point he is not in the NBA right now. While the Spurs could offer more than the league minimum, if they do they move over the luxury tax line.

The Spurs do have three French players on their roster already — Tony Parker, Boris Diaw and Nando De Colo. So there would be a fit. But it’s always about the money.

    Hopefully Tony can give a good recruiting pitch. I think he’d be a pretty good fit, actually, as a spot up shooter with a decent BB IQ who could fit in on defense.

      BBQ IQ’s gotta be HIGH to play in Texas.
