In an interview this morning with Ticket 760 AM in San Antonio, San Antonio Spurs’ GM R.C. Buford said the team would attempt to build via trade and not through the draft or free agency which is the team’s traditional route.
This is big news coming from the Spurs who have always taken a pretty conservative approach to acquiring talent.
With Tony Parker’s recent comments regarding the Spurs ability to win the title and him being the Spurs most trade-able asset, he would have to be the most likely player involved in such a trade to get premium talent back. And if they do trade, Spurs fans are hoping it will be a quality big man. Something they been severely lacking as was evident in the playoffs versus Memphis.
Not to mention if they do consider Parker as trade bait, sitting on the bench is another capable point guard – George Hill.
What do you think about this news Spurs fans? What trade scenarios would you like to see?
