Why give Splitter a 9mil per year contract, when I'm sure they could get Al jefferson for 10mil a year..

Splitter is a better defender and cheaper.

Splitter plays the pick and roll on both ends great. Al Jefferson does not. At all. Too slow to play alongside Duncan at this point.

I rather have Al than Tiago, Im still pissed how he played in The Finals.

lol you think jefferson could go for as little as 10 per,if your 6'10 and just average.10 per is the floor

ok,remember what you said next time your team signs a bigman

Very good question OP!. Splitter was an offensive liability in the finals. Jefferson could probably spare Timmy a couple more years.

Lol if you think Jefferson will get only $10 mil.

Don't think the Spurs are under the cap to sign him anyways.

Jefferson would have gotten exposed just as bad trying to defend Miami's small ball and score against their pressure trap defense.

yeah but al jefferson would be playing for a championship. you'd be surprised, didnt james wade and bosh take a paycut to play for championships? and look how that's working out for them so you'd be surprised, so dont assume 10mil a year isnt a decent pay for jefferson. He made 14mil a year, and he's aging, it isnt that bad. David west got something similar.

not every player can make up"the lost salary" by endorsements and getting paid the rest under the table like lebron/wade/bosh do.al jefferson just makes what his salary is.10 is decent ,but below market value.and being aging is why he wouldntt take a pay cut to go to a contender,this is his last chance at a big payday.he can always ring chase for vet min on his next contract

cause he sucks at defense and is only an average offensive player?

Because Pop wants good unselfish players who work hard. Al is none of those things. He puffs up his own numbers at the expense of the team and W's. He is on a list of "not gonna touch um" by every coach and GM who is actively trying to win a ring.

al works very hard he just is not quick enough to defend.

Splitter is better than Al.

Ask the Spurs. They will agree with me.

He didn't play much in the finals because of matchup. The Heat went small so Pop did. The reason they are not going after Big Al is because he is terribly slow and would give up just as much as he would give. Imagine TD & AL trying to defend the PnR. Teams would literally PnR them to death. He is a bad defender & a terrible fit. If TD retired? Sure.

They want to win ... They should have gotten Milsap not Al or Josh or Tiago.

Yeah, if Tiago wasn't better in their system and just the better player for winning in general I'd agree with you.
