In a story I released earlier this year entitled “Spurs look to Marc Gasol to pick up the torch after Tim Duncan retires.” it appears that the Spurs still intend on pursuing Marc Gasol this summer. A Spurs insider revealed that the Spurs have already planned a strategy in the event of Timmy and Manu retiring. The Spurs organization does not want to rebuild the team but rather add quality players to the roster that will help secure the Spurs future. This will be done either through trades for potential draft picks or trading for players the Spurs think will help the team now. San Antonio is not looking to be left behind and rely on landing a high lottery pick in the draft as they have done in the past. This summer expect the Spurs to aggressively go after Marc Gasol as he will surely become the prize of the upcoming off season. Sources revealed that Marco Gasol would like to sign with a team he feels is a championship contender and the Spurs are at the top of his list. Marc Gasol would really consider signing with the Spurs if the Memphis Grizzles can not make a deep push in the playoffs this year. It appears there will be more at stake for the Spurs if they meet the Grizzles in the first round of the playoffs this year. Should the Spurs beat the Memphis Grizzles in the playoffs, they could have just secured their future Center slash Power Forward. This is all in theory at this moment as the Spurs are very unpredictable, but should this scenario unfold we could see a different Spurs team next year.
