Spurscast: Jakob Poeltl Trade Rumor

In Spurscast episode 662, Spurscast host Paul Garcia discusses: 

  • Joe Wieskamp and Jeremy Sochan missing all of Summer League
  • The additions of Gorgui Dieng and Isaiah Roby to the Spurs
  • The options the Spurs can take with their cap space
  • Where the roster currently stands

Latest News

Joe Wieskamp will have to miss the Las Vegas Summer League after spraining his right ankle according to the team. Jeremy Sochan will also miss all five Summer League games after returning from health and safety protocols.

The Spurs officially signed Blake Wesley earlier this week, but the team still hasn’t signed Sochan, Malaki Branham, and Gorgui Dieng. The Spurs also reportedly have until July 8 to waive Danilo Gallinari before his deal becomes fully guaranteed for $21.4 million this coming season.

The Opening Week of Free Agency

In the opening week of free agency, the Spurs agreed to a one-year deal with Dieng and they claimed Isaiah Roby off waivers.

As part of the Dejounte Murray trade, Jock Landale was traded to Atlanta, and then Atlanta traded him to Phoenix. Lonnie Walker IV officially signed with the Los Angeles Lakers this week.

What are the Spurs doing with their cap space?

The Spurs can potentially open up to $38.4 million in cap space and the question remains, what can they do with that cap space?

There are still notable free agents available like Deandre Ayton and Collin Sexton, while there’s also the possibility of being a team willing to acquire contracts for future picks. Lastly, the Spurs could just do nothing with their cap space.

Where does the roster stand currently?

Assuming Gallinari will be waived soon, the Spurs’ roster will have 13 players on guaranteed contracts, two players on non-guaranteed deals, and one player on a two-way contract.
