Knowing that they’re on borrowed time essentially, the Spurs are looking to put together one last run and according to CBS Sports they’ve been ‘unusually aggressive’ in the trade market because of it:
We’ve been predicting the Spurs’ last hurrah for years, but this time it might really be the end of the road. The Spurs have been unusually aggressive trying to upgrade their roster in the trade market, a signal to rival execs that Gregg Popovich and R.C. Buford realize this might be the final shot at a title with the triumvirate of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.
Of course, the Spurs are currently the best team in the NBA’s Western Conference (and just percentage points behind the Indiana Pacers for best in the league) – and this is with sitting players like Duncan and Ginobili every so often to maintain health.
Talk about a nice luxury.
No players have been linked to the Spurs specifically though it appears they’re doing what they can in hopes of adding an additional piece or two for the playoff stretch.
