Why The San Antonio Spurs Do The Deal 

You didn’t buy the Spurs early sample, did you? 

This team benefits from having one of the best coaches in the history of the sport. They move the ball well and play for each other. They also do not have the talent to compete for a playoff spot. 

Luckily, that talent exists in the upcoming draft. In fact, this class looks special. The Spurs need to stick to what was always the logical plan for them and tank for it. 

This deal helps ensure that they bottom out. It also nets them some extremely valuable future draft capital.
