4-Down Podcast, Ep. 76: Champs, foreigners and free agents
DRAFT NIGHT. For most of the NBA, Draft Night is one to be semi-excited about. Unless you’re a perennial loser (Hey Cavs), there’s a modicum of hope that the player you grab tonight is the one to get you over the top; the guy who will make you a contender. More often than not, this is false.
The Spurs, however, are in a different situation altogether. Holders of the 30th, 58th and 60th overall picks, this deep draft doesn’t offer a whole lot for the champs in terms of star power. There are options to draft-and-stash or find NBA-ready bodies to plug what few holes this team has. What they’ll actually do is anyone’s guess.
