Video: Popovich says it’ll take time to get used to new-look bench


The San Antonio Spurs saw players DeJuan Blair, Gary Neal, and to a lesser extent Stephen Jackson and assistant coaches Brett Brown and Mike Budenholzer leave the team thus making the year's bench look different.

Added have been guard Marco Belinelli, and forward Jeff Ayers in the early offseason and recently signed Sam Young (and whoever may impress at training camp) as well as coach Jim Boylan. Suffice it to say, it will be a new-look bench when opening night comes around.

Something head coach Gregg Popovich is not quite comfortable with yet.

In an interview with NBA TV, Popovich is quite glad Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are back for another run at the title but admitted the changes to the bench, in particular the new coaches, will take time to get used to but likes the new crew.


So do you agree with Pop Spurs fans? Are you iffy on the bench aspect of the team?
