The release of small forward Corey Maggette earlier in the Spurs’ three-game preseason road trip all but guarantees the team will open the regular season without a veteran backup for Kawhi Leonard.
“We’ve got a lot of guys who can play,” Popovich said, “but as an insurance policy it wouldn’t be a terrible thing to have a bigger body so you don’t have to overplay people like Marco (Belinelli) or Danny (Green).”
“There are not so many LeBrons or Carmelos,” Ginobili said. “Those come once every few years. Not every team has a strong 3 that is going to post up and cause a lot of problems. For most of the teams, we’re fine.”
