As you know, the summer league has kicked off in Las Vegas. Besides the greatness that is Kawhi Leonard, there are some other interesting names on the Spurs’ Vegas roster. Scott Schroeder of Ridiculous Upside joins the 4-Down Podcast for a short show to break down the Spurs roster and talk about the summer schedule in Sin City.

Scott gives us his views on Cory Joseph, Eric Dawson and the others, while explaining a loophole that the Spurs could exploit to get Ryan Richards on the Austin Toros this season, without having to use a precious roster spot on the NBA roster.

    As in game 1…Joseph and Leonard are proving to be in the league and the rest might have to deal with D-league or overseas for further development.

    Interesting loop hole regarding Richards. I would think if he’s serious about developing as an nba player he would accept. If anything…if he doesn’t improve to nba material…he should in the least develop on an nba D-league team to be more adept to playing good ball for good pay overseas.

    On the cusp would be Dawson to making it as the Spurs 5th big…but I do like what he brings to the court. The Spurs could do worse.

    Again…Joseph just might be playing himself to, in the least, being in a trade scenario. But like his development from just a year ago.

    “I would think if he’s serious about developing as an nba player he would accept. ”

    He said in the past he wanted to play for the Toros. Obviously, talk is cheap.
