The Milwaukee Bucks are here and they're officially perfect after winning their first two games against the Philadelphia 76ers and Houston Rockets. Gyro Step hosts Ti Windisch and Rohan Katti started off with Giannis Antetokounmpo after he dominated the Rockets with a variety of offensive moves, then moved through the entire rotation to discuss what they've taken away from the first two games. After getting through all of the Bucks takes, Ti and Rohan discussed attending the 2022 NBA G League draft party held by the Wisconsin Herd, who picked Joe Wieskamp with the second overall pick. Included in that is a quick interview with Herd head coach Chaisson Allen on the draft, the season outlook, and even his thoughts on seeing MarJon Beauchamp in Oshkosh.

Spurscast: Season Roster and Opening Night Loss In Spurscast episode 672, Spurscast host Paul Garcia discusses: The Spurs' finalized roster to begin the regular season The season-opening loss to the Charlotte Hornets The Regular Season Roster Finalized In order to get their roster to the NBA requirement of 15 players and two two-way players by opening night, the San Antonio Spurs had to waive 3-point shooter Joe Wieskamp. The final roster spot came down to Wieskamp and Romeo Langford during training camp and the preseason, and Langford win out the last roster spot. By making the opening night roster, both Tre Jones and Keita Bates-Diop saw their contracts go from non-guaranteed to fully guaranteed deals. Though their roster is set, trades are still a possibility for this season with the team having $30 million in cap space. If other teams are trying to move a player with a large contract and attaching future draft picks in a deal, the Spurs would be in the ideal position to participate in that type of trade. Season Opening Loss to Charlotte Wednesday the Spurs opened their season with a 27-point loss to the Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets built a 20-point lead in the first half, the Spurs got within 10 points in the third quarter, but Charlotte answered and ended up building a 35-point lead. Keldon Johnson was the stand-out player for the Spurs with 20 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 assists. The Spurs struggled from the 3-point line while the opposite happened for Charlotte. Though it's just one game, the opening game shows a glimpse of how young players Josh Primo, Keldon Johnson, and Devin Vassell will have more responsibility to create for themselves and others by looking at the early drive's data.

How this team compares to the 1996-1997 Spurs roster Team News The San Antonio Spurs still haven't signed Jalen Adaway. In order to sign Adaway, a player will have to be waived first. Training camps for most NBA teams are scheduled to begin Monday, September 26 with media day. Will Josh Primo start at the point? One of the questions several Spurs fans asked was whether Josh Primo will now be the starting point guard with Dejounte Murray being traded to Atlanta. This is a question addressed in this episode and there seems to be a starting point guard competition between Primo, Tre Jones, and Blake Wesley. The Starting Lineup Also in the episode, predicted starting lineups are provided. Will the Spurs start Primo, Keldon Johnson, Devin Vassell, Doug McDermott, and Jakob Poeltl? The Rotation this coming season Along with the starters, who will be the main backup players at each position off the bench?

In Spurscast episode 665, Spurscast host Paul Garcia and Project Spurs Director of Digital Content Joe Garcia discuss: The Spurs re-signing Joe Wieskamp Alize Johnson and Tommy Kuhse signing exhibit-10 deals Jalen Adaway signing an exhibit-10 contract soon Manu Ginobili's upcoming Hall of Fame ceremony Joe Wieskamp Re-Signs The San Antonio Spurs recently re-signed Joe Wieskamp to a two-year deal, for $4.4 million. The first year of the deal is fully guaranteed and the second year is partially guaranteed if Wieskamp remains on the team past a specific deadline. With the Spurs tendering Wieskamp a qualifying offer when free agency began, the signs were there that they intended to keep him as part of their roster since he was just entering the second season of his NBA career. Three Players on Exhibit 10 Deals Alize Johnson and Tommy Kuhse signed exhibit-10 deals recently, and a player on the roster will have to be waived in order for the team to sign Jalen Adaway to an exhibit 10 contract. With the Spurs' roster now capped with 20 players, in order to sign another player going forward, the Spurs will have to waive a player first. Though it's not an urgent move, the Spurs will also need to decide which player will be waived before the start of the regular season in late October. In a segment on the episode, this topic is discussed. Manu Ginobili's Hall of Fame Ceremony This Weekend This Saturday, September 10, Manu Ginobili will enter the Hall of Fame. Presenting Ginobili into the hall of fame will be his former teammate and recent 2020 Hall of Fame inductee Tim Duncan.

In Spurscast episode 660, Spurscast host Paul Garcia and Project Spurs writer Collin Reid discuss: The state of the Spurs' roster before free agency The three ways the Spurs can use their cap space The State of the Spurs' Roster The Spurs will enter free agency Thursday with 15 players under contract barring players being traded or waived before Thursday. Tre Jones, Keita Bates-Diop, and Jock Landale all have non-guaranteed contracts. The Spurs can have up to 20 players on their roster in the offseason, but before opening night of the regular season, their roster needs to be trimmed to 15 players and two players on two-way contracts at maximum. The Spurs have decisions to make on whether they'll make Lonnie Walker IV, Joe Wieskamp, Devontae Cacok, Robert Woodard II, and DJ Stewart restricted free agents. Those decisions has to be made by Wednesday June 29. The Spurs' Three Options with Cap Space The Spurs can go with one or a mixture of the following options regarding their cap space this offseason: Sign free agents - With the ability to open up to $34.4 million in cap space, the Spurs could choose to use their cap space to sign a free agent or multiple free agents. Are they a team that throws a max offer sheet at Deandre Ayton? Trade for players on multiple year deals - The Spurs could use their cap space to acquire a player already under contract via trade. John Collins' name has been mentioned in trade rumors, though the latest reporting has Dejounte Murray included in a hypothetical deal. Use cap space to acquire future picks by taking on contracts - Similar to how the Spurs used their cap space to acquire Al-Farouq Aminu and Thaddeus Young from Chicago for future draft picks in the deal with DeMar DeRozan last year, the Spurs could go with a similar route to acquire players under contract for future picks. The New York Knicks have reportedly been trying to move veteran players under contract like Alec Burks and Evan Fournier.

Episode Title: Spurscast: Spurs' Cap Space Scenarios In Spurscast episode 654, Spurscast host Paul Garcia and Project Spurs writer Collin Reid discuss: The Spurs' different cap space scenarios going into free agency 11 Players Projected to be on Guaranteed Deals The San Antonio Spurs will go into the offseason with eight players on guaranteed contracts next season in Dejounte Murray, Doug McDermott, Josh Richardson, Jakob Poeltl, Romeo Langford, Devin Vassell, Josh Primo, and Keldon Johnson. The Spurs will also have three first-round picks with their projected 9th lottery pick, the 20th pick from Toronto, and the 25th pick from Boston. From now until the Spurs draft and then sign a player with those picks or trade the pick, the picks have cap holds on the Spurs' salary sheet going into the offseason. So when you combine the three picks with the eight players on guaranteed deals, that's a projected 11 players on guaranteed deals. 4 Players with Partially/Non-Guaranteed Deals Four Spurs players will enter the offseason with partially or non-guaranteed deals in Zach Collins (partial guarantee), Tre Jones, Keita Bates-Diop, and Jock Landale. Each player's salary and guarantee date are discussed in the episode, as well as early predictions as to whether the Spurs will keep the player on the roster next season or waive the player in the offseason. 5 Players Entering Free Agency Five Spurs players will be entering free agency in Lonnie Walker IV, Joe Wieskamp, Devontae Cacok, DJ Stewart Jr., and Robert Woodard II. The Spurs can make any of these players restricted free agents by tending the player a qualifying offer by June 29. The Cap Space Projections The Spurs will have multiple cap space projections to explore being able to open anywhere from $16 to $37 million in cap space depending on what decisions they make with the players on non-guaranteed deals and the players entering free agency.

In Spurscast episode 649, Spurscast host Paul Garcia discusses: The Spurs in their last 7 games Some late-season roster moves by the Spurs The Spurs' chances of making the play-in game The Spurs in their last 7 Games The San Antonio Spurs went 2-5 in their last seven games, with wins against the Los Angeles Lakers and Washington Wizards, and losses to the Miami Heat, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings, Charlotte Hornets, and Toronto Raptors. The loss to the Kings was the one that stung since the Spurs were projected to go 3-4 in their last seven games, but instead went 2-5. Through 66 games of the season, the Spurs are 25-41, with a league-average offense and the 19th ranked defense. The Spurs are still close to the Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans for the 9th and 10th seeds that would allow San Antonio to be in the play-in tournament. Some players discussed in the episode are Dejounte Murray, Keldon Johnson, Lonnie Walker IV, Jakob Poeltl, and Devin Vassell. Each players' play in the last 11 games is examined since the trade deadline, where there's been more opportunity with Derrick White now off the team. Late Season Roster Moves The Spurs made some late-season roster moves recently, by agreeing to a buyout agreement with Tomas Satoransky, converting the two-way contracts of Joe Wieskamp and Devontae Cacok to standard NBA contracts, and finally, signing DJ Stewart Jr. and Robert Woodard II to two-way contracts. Each move is discussed in the episode as well as the Spurs' cap space projections for this summer. The Spurs' Chances of Making the Play-In Game With just 16 regular-season games remaining, the Spurs are 3.5 games behind the Lakers for the 9th seed and 2 games behind the Pelicans for the 10th seed. The Lakers are projected to go 7-10 in their final 17 games, and if that happens, the Spurs would need to go 11-5 down the stretch to finish with a better record than the Lakers. The Pelicans are projected to go 6-10 in their final 16 games, and if that happens, the Spurs would need to go 8-8 down the stretch.

The San Antonio Spurs currently have 18 players under contract when including Joe Wieskamp's two-way deal. This means the Spurs can still add up to two more players for training camp and the preseason. Benjamin Bornstein and Jonas Clark talk about Austin Spurs players or players that played for the Spurs during Summer League that could end up on the training camp roster. Training camp kicks off next week with the preseason schedule soon to follow. Ben and Jonas mention names like Nate Renfro, Kenny Williams, Kaleb Johnson and Khyri Thomas among others.

In Spurscast episode 629, Spurscast host Paul Garcia and Project Spurs writers Benjamin Bornstein and Jonas Clark discuss the latest San Antonio Spurs topics: Players with Austin Spurs who might get a training camp invite Austin Spurs players who may end up getting the vacant two-way roster spot Who will replace Matt Nielsen as the Austin Spurs' Head Coach? Players with Austin Spurs who might get a training camp invite The San Antonio Spurs currently have 18 players under contract when including Joe Wieskamp's two-way deal. This means the Spurs can still add up to two more players for training camp and the preseason. In the episode, there's a conversation regarding players with Austin Spurs experience who might get training camp invites for the San Antonio team. The Spurs' roster though will have to be set at 15 players on full NBA deals and two two-way players by October 18, after the conclusion of the preseason. Austin Spurs players who may end up getting the vacant two-way roster spot Now that Keita Bates-Diop has signed a full NBA contract, the Spurs have an open two-way roster spot available. There's a discussion in the episode regarding players who have Austin Spurs experience that would be good candidates for the Spurs' open two-way roster spot. Who will replace Matt Nielsen as the Austin Spurs' Head Coach? In early September, the San Antonio Spurs announced Matt Nielsen, who was the head coach of the Austin Spurs, had been hired as an assistant coach with the San Antonio organization. With Nielsen now in San Antonio, the question becomes who will replace him as the Austin head coach? The podcast discussion looks at a few G-League coaching candidates that can take over in Austin. Another note to watch is if the new G-League head coach for Austin will be someone who is able to help Wieskamp and possibly Joshua Primo develop, in the event San Antonio sends Primo to Austin during the regular season.

In Spurscast episode 628, Spurscast host Paul Garcia and Project Spurs writer Collin Reid discuss: The Spurs waiving Chandler Hutchison The Spurs re-signing Keita Bates-Diop More roster moves that need to be made by the team before opening night of the regular season Chandler Hutchison waivedLast Saturday the San Antonio Spurs waived Chandler Hutchison and they kept his $4 million salary on their books for this coming season. With the team needing to get the roster down to 15 players and two two-way players by October 18, plus Hutchison being in the final year of his contract, the roster move wasn't too surprising. Keita Bates-Diop re-signsTuesday the Spurs re-signed Keita Bates-Diop, who was on a two-way contract with the team last season. Bates-Diop's new deal is for two years at the veteran minimum, with the second year being non-guaranteed. Bates-Diop will likely be third on the depth chart at small forward behind Keldon Johnson and Devin Vassell. With Bates-Diop re-signed, the team now has 17 players on guaranteed contracts. The team will have to get the roster down to 15 players on guaranteed deals by October 18, 2021. Bates-Diop on the team also puts the Spurs up to 18 total players on contracts when Joe Wieskamp's two-way deal is included. This means the team can still invite two-players to training camp. More roster moves that need to be waivedAs mentioned above, the Spurs now need to either waive or trade two players by October 18. Thaddeus Young's name has been mentioned in trade rumors already. The Boston Celtics, New Orleans Pelicans, and Orlando Magic all have trade exceptions large enough to absorb Young's $14.1 million contract. The Oklahoma City Thunder could also absorb Young's contract by opening cap space. The Phoenix Suns and Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly have interest in Young, though San Antonio would have to acquire players to trade Young to either Cleveland or Phoenix. Though there's no reporting that the Spurs are looking to trade or waive Al-Farouq Aminu, his $10.1 million contract is discussed in the episode. Teams that have large enough trade exceptions to absorb Aminu's contract are the Pelicans, Celtics, Magic, Nets, and Mavericks. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
In Spurscast episode 626, Spurscast host Paul Garcia and Project Spurs writer Benjamin Bornstein discuss: The Spurs' Las Vegas over/under for wins An update on where the team stands and decisions still to be made Lonnie Walker IV heading into next season The Spurs' Las Vegas over/under for wins BetOnline.ag recently released the over/under for wins for all 30 NBA teams. The Spurs' over/under for wins was 28.5 wins. If the schedule played out based on the over/under win projections, the Spurs would finish 13th in the Western Conference and be in position to land the 6th overall pick in the NBA Draft Lottery next summer. Update on where the team stands While training camp doesn't begin until late September, the Spurs still haven't completed some reported deals. The team still needs to sign Bryn Forbes to his contract and the Spurs need to sign Joe Wieskamp to a two-way contract. Keita Bates-Diop is also still a restricted free agent, with the opportunity to return to the Spurs on a two-way contract if he accepted the qualifying offer. Before the opening game of the regular season, the Spurs will have to either waive or trade two players because teams can only take 15 players and two two-way players on their roster into the regular season. Once Forbes and Wieskamp sign their deals, the Spurs will have 17 players and one two-way player on their roster. Lonnie Walker IV heading into next season This offseason the Spurs can either extend Lonnie Walker IV's contract before the first game of the regular season or if he plays out the season, he'll be a restricted free agent next offseason. In the podcast episode, there's a discussion using AI models from ProFitX reviewing Walker IV's progress last season and the areas where he's projected to improve in the coming season.

In Spurscast episode 623, Spurscast host Paul Garcia and Project Spurs writer Collin Reid discuss: The Spurs' free agency week where they agreed to terms with multiple players and acquired other players in trades What the Spurs would now need to do to trade for Ben Simmons Why more changes to the roster have to take place before opening night of the regular season Salt Lake City observations on Devin Vassell, Joshua Primo, and Joe Wieskamp The Opening Week of Free Agency The Spurs will reportedly acquire Thaddeus Young, Al-Farouq Aminu, a future first round pick, and two future second round picks in a sign-and-trade deal that will send DeMar DeRozan to the Chicago Bulls. The Spurs acquired Chandler Hutchison and a 2022 second round pick from the Washington Wizards in a five team trade. The Spurs sent the draft rights of 2015 first round draftee Nikola Milutinov to the Brooklyn Nets. The Spurs agreed to terms with Doug McDermott on a three year, $42 million deal. They agreed to terms with Zach Collins on a three year, $22 million deal, and they struck a deal with Jock Landale of Australia for two years. The last agreement came with former Spur Bryn Forbes agreeing to return where he started his NBA career in San Antonio. In the episode, each agreement is discussed and why the Spurs might be able to send Young out in a future trade months from now. Along with DeRozan, Rudy Gay, Patty Mills, Trey Lyles, and Gorgui Dieng have all moved to different teams as well. Keita Bates-Diop is still a restricted free agent in free agency, though the Spurs have until August 13 to pull his qualifying offer without his permission. What would a Ben Simmons to Spurs trade look like now? With the Spurs' cap space now gone, a discussion takes place in the episode of what a new trade deal would look like if the Spurs had more interest in trading for Ben Simmons. More Roster Changes on the Way Once all the Spurs' signings and trades are made official, the team will have 17 players on the roster (not counting the two two-way spots). This means before the opening game of the regular season, the Spurs will have to get the roster count down to 15 players. The Spurs currently have Drew Eubanks on a non-guaranteed deal with a guarantee date of August 19. Even if Eubanks were waived, the team would still have to waive or trade a player to have the roster ready by the opening game of the regular season in October. Salt Lake City Summer League Observations The last part of the episode focuses on Devin Vassell's increased playmaking in Summer League and initial impressions of Joshua Primo and Joe Wieskamp's first Summer League games.

On Episode 62, Sam and Jack come together to talk some sports like the good ole days. They open with talking about the new NIL legislation that passed and how it has essentially turned into the "Wild West". We discuss the potential draft positions and locations for Joe Wieskamp and Luka Garza, discussing both of their NBA Combine numbers as well as their official meaurables. The 2021-2022 Iowa Hawkeye Men's Basketball team comes up as both Sam and Jack agree that this will be a new brand of Iowa basketball this season. The guys wrap the pod up with Cubs/Sox talk and come to the realization that the Cubs will only continue to hurt their fans' hearts as players get traded away with the Sox worrying about staying healthy, like they have been all season.
Joe Wieskamp and Luka Garza are looking good at the NBA combine. Final offensive position group discussion around tight ends, wide receivers and the offensive line. Who will fill the shoes of ISM and Brandon Smith? I like this offensive line led by the great Tyler Linderbaum and showed my age calling them “Big Uglies” as the late great Keith Jackson used to say. Legend!

He touches on Iowa's matchups versus the top teams this year and how the Hawkeyes are peaking at the right time, how Joe Wieskamp and CJ Fredrick have elevated their games, and details his opinion on why Fran plays Jordan Bohannon more than Joe Toussaint. We wrap the interview up with talk about Fran McCaffery, who he is and his recruiting tendencies, David's experience with Nebraska fans and his "Art of the Interview".
Luka Garza and Joe Wieskamp led the Hawkeyes in scoring, and Jordan Bohannon became Iowa's all time assist leader, surpassing Jeff Horner for 1st place. It was a huge road win the the Hawkeyes.
After losing to Minnesota on the road, the Hawkeyes beat the Gophers by 15 points at home. Garza, Bohannon and Wieskamp all had shined for the Hawkeyes in the rematch.
