Report: Spurs to Sign Keith Bogans
According to AOL Fanhouse’s Chris Tomasson, the Spurs intend to sign swignman Keith Bogans to a one-year, $1.03 million guaranteed deal. The 29-year-old, 6’5″ SG began last season with the Orlando Magic but was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in February.
Signing Bogans, who is considered a solid defender, speaks to the front office’s concerns about our depth on the wing, and puts increased pressure on former Toros such as Marcus Williams, Malik Hairston, and Ian Mahinmi, whose chances of making the team dwindle with each veteran signing.
Between Bogans and last week’s Curtis Jerrells signing, the make-up of the Spurs training camp is nearly complete. The Spurs currently have at least 19 players under some form of contract (don’t forget about James Gist and Jack McClinton), and only twenty players can attend training camp. With Gist, McClinton, Jerrells, Hairston, Williams, and Mahinmi fighting for just two spots, it’s clear the Spurs are committed to having a competitive, high-quality training camp.
