Should He Stay or Should He Go

Should he stay: Trey Lyles

Despite playing well last season, Lyles’ future with the Spurs will be determined by whether the team can remain under the tax line with his deal on the books or whether they need to waive him to clear salary.

Should he stay: Marco Belinelli

Belinelli can still shoot and knows the system, but with the youth movement in full swing, there might be no place for him in San Antonio anymore.

Should he stay: Bryn Forbes

Can Bryn Forbes and his great shooting help the Spurs in a smaller role? Probably, but his shortcomings might be too many to ignore for a team with a surplus of guards.

Should he stay: Jakob Poeltl

Should the Spurs re-sign the solid but unspectacular big man? It depends on how highly they value impact over potential.

Free agent shooting guards the Spurs might like

Danny Green, Manu Ginobili and Marco Belinelli are all free agents. It sure would be neat to bring them all back, but perhaps that's not realistic. Here are four other fellows who might be suitable replacements.

Has Marco Belinelli done enough to earn a raise?

Marco Belinelli has provided good value for his contract but what happens if he wants a raise?

Cory Joseph may be too good for the Spurs to keep

Joseph had a good year but with Mills already under contract, bringing him back might not make sense.

Should the Spurs bring back Bonner and Ayres?

Michael Erler and Jesus Gomez discuss the Spurs' two deep bench big men and why it's time to move on from them.

Spurs can sign Aldridge and bring back "Big Four"

There is a way for the Spurs to sign free agent LaMarcus Aldridge to a max contract and re-sign Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard. It is mathematically possible. It's just not realistic at all or a sound basketball decision.

Why Aron Baynes remains unsigned

Baynes, like Greg Monroe and Eric Bledose, is severely limited in his options thanks to being a restricted free agent

The key to the Spurs' off-season

There just aren't a lot of players who can score, shoot, create and also have a high basketball IQ on the defensive end. The Spurs had all of the above from Diaw last season. Will they have the same again next year?

Should the Spurs re-sign Matt Bonner?

Stampler proposes some Spurs trades

The column contains a few hypothetical trades the Spurs could make. The only catch is that they would never happen.
