Spurs Re-Sign Thomas

After losing out on Corey Maggette and not even attempting to sign J.R. Smith to an offer sheet, it looked like the Spurs only offseason signing would be Roger Mason when Kurt Thomas didn’t immediately re-sign and several teams, including the Lakers, showed interest in signing the veteran big man.
Spurs fans can breathe easy now. According to Spurs.com, Thomas and the team have agreed to a contract at undisclosed terms. Since the Spurs front office did not target a power forward or center in the draft or free agency, Thomas’ signing was very important to the success of the Spurs next season, especially with Ian Mahinmi’s lackluster performances in summer league.
With Thomas re-signing and the Mason signing, I believe the Spurs are probably done in free agency aside from possibly re-signing Michael Finley and signing summer league players to pre-season or one-year contracts. R.C. Buford has said that Rober Horry will not be back.
