NBA Offseason Team Needs:
1. Frontcourt Depth:
Pau Gasol and Dewayne Dedmon have already announced they are opting out of their contracts and becoming free agents, and David Lee could follow suit. Gasol is reportedly wanting to re-sign with the team, but San Antonio still needs to find some depth and athleticism inside to help LaMarcus Aldridge out.
2. Experienced Wing:
While it hasn't been made official yet, all signs point toward Manu Ginobili retiring this offseason. That leaves a massive void on the Spurs' bench and means they need to find an experienced wing who can provide some scoring punch.
3. Point Guard:
Tony Parker likely won't be ready for the start of the season after rupturing his Achilles in the playoffs, and Patty Mills is a free agent, leaving Dejounte Murray as the only point guard on the roster. While Murray showed some terrific promise late in the season, San Antonio should look to add a veteran floor general if it is unable to re-sign Mills.
