Spurs should be considering Howard


Or should I say, Howard should be considering the Spurs? It might not be that crazy at all.

If Howard stays put, the Spurs are a very attractive destination. There will be money to offer, specially if the front office decides to finally amnesty Richard Jefferson this summer. Two unselfish star guards in Parker and Manu locked for a couple of years each. At least a couple of young wings. A very good frontcourt partner in Tiago, maybe even a great frontcourt overall if Tim decides to play an extra year or two with a decent contract (Howard, TD, Tiago, Blair and Bonner) and arguably the best coach you can have right now.

The Spurs' rosters would look like this:


Tony and Joseph
Manu, Neal
Leonard and Green
TD, Blair and Bonner
Howard and Tiago

*TD, TJ and Anderson are the only two players not under contract for next season. RJ gets amnestied.

All this without anything out of the ordinary happening. The players are already there and so will the cap space. Howard would make no more than what Timmy earns this season and I don't think Duncan would have a problem earning something close to what RJ is making now. Suddenly a few veteran players wanting to come to SA on the cheap again just because of him.

What are his other options? A rebuilding mess in NJ? The very thin and old Lakers? Staying?
