The San Antonio Spurs struck out on landing free agent forward Kenyon Martin and now it seems any hopes of acquiring New Orleans Hornets’ Chris Kaman are dashed as well.
The Spurs were reportedly interested in adding Kaman to the roster to bolster their frontline but according to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Hornets are ending Kaman trade talks.Unless the Spurs have any other big men in their sites to address their need up front, it seems the team will be rolling with Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter, DeJuan Blair and Matt Bonner for the rest of the season.
Thankfully Splitter’s game has improved and can be a force in the paint but like many Spurs fans know, after TD and Splitter, the Spurs lack the needed size to contend with other teams such as the much bigger Los Angeles Lakers or Memphis Grizzlies. Not to take away anything from Blair and Bonner but Blair is undersized and Bonner is too one-dimensional.
So now what Spurs fans? Are there any other bigs the Spurs should target?
