Standing pat or shoring up the reserves?

The trade deadline has come and gone, and somewhat not surprisingly, R.C. Buford, Pop, and the entire Spurs organization has decided to stand pat with what they've got right now.  I mean, the Spurs are sitting at a comfortable record of 47-10, a full 6 games ahead of the second place Dallas Mavericks.  Now with James Anderson rejoining the team, the Spurs have 13 players on roster, the league minimum.  They could add more players, but given the effectiveness of the current 12 man rotation, it's unlikely they'd add anyone that would make an immediate impact, theoretically.  With some decent names potentially getting bought out, should the Spurs look at perhaps adding someone?

The first thing is who is getting bought out.  We're never really certain about this until it happens, but let's consider...  The two names I have heard circling the buyout talks have been Troy Murphy and Samuel Dalembert.  Now for all extensive purposes, I find Murphy to be something of a glorified Bonner, so in all respects, I'd rather not have Murphy, but the prospect of someone like Dalembert certainly intrigues me, especially in light of the difficulty assimilating Splitter.  However, the strong play of Bonner and McDyess somewhat mitigates the need for a big.  At the very least, he would be a solid defensive and shot-blocking presence in the event he becomes available.  What's your take?

Here's out current roster:

PG - Tony Parker, George Hill, Chris Quinn

SG - Manu Ginobili, Gary Neal

SF - Richard Jefferson, James Anderson

PF - DeJuan Blair, Antonio McDyess, Matt Bonner, Steve Novak

C - Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter
