The Spurs officially signed No. 30 pick Kyle Anderson on Saturday.

Anderson is 6'9" and 230 pounds but he's an abnormally good passer who averaged 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists last season. He also made 48.3 percent of his shots beyond the arc as a sophomore with UCLA, and looks like a perfect fit in Gregg Popovich's system. Unfortunately, with Boris Diaw re-signed and the Spurs intent on repeating as champions, the rookie isn't likely to play enough to have fantasy value.

Kyle Anderson had a typical night vs. the Kings on Friday with six points, four boards, six assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

He lived up to his nickname Slo Mo today. Anderson acted as point forward on several possessions and played mistake-free ball. The Spurs didn't lose any depth this offseason, which means we won't see much of Anderson on the nights Coach Pop doesn't rest his players.

Tony Parker is hopeful that Pau Gasol will sign with the Spurs.

The Spurs are reportedly on the outskirts of the teams who are likely to land Gasol, but that hasn't stopped Parker from hoping his friend will join the NBA champs. "I'd love to play with Pau Gasol. If he doesn't choose us, we will go dinner and take a good wine as we always do," Parker said. Gasol would make an interesting addition to the defending champions and would have a good chance to maintain his fantasy value playing alongside Tim Duncan.

Spurs announced on Wednesday that head coach Gregg Popovich has agreed to a multi-year contract extension.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but he'll certainly be one of the highest-paid coaches in the league. We'll get a few more years masterfully designed offense and classic sound bites from one of the best coaches in the history of the NBA. The Spurs were ridiculously efficient last season and his system has boosted the fantasy values of countless players.

Josh Howard is playing with the Pelicans' Summer League team in the hopes of continuing his NBA career.

Howard's career was derailed by multiple ACL surgeries and he spent last season in the D-League. If he can stay healthy the 34-year-old has a chance to earn a minimum contract, and the Pelicans do need depth at SF, but even if he doesn't latch on with an NBA team he'll continue to play somewhere. "I plan on making a comeback. That's my motivation," Howard said. "Pelicans, D-League, overseas. Whatever happens, just to have the opportunity to play the game that I love. You can't beat that."

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

The Spurs and Boris Diaw have agreed on a three-year, $22.5 million contract, with the third season partially guaranteed.

The 32-year-old forward just won his first NBA championship with San Antonio and there was never much doubt that he'd re-sign. He averaged 9.2 points, 0.8 threes, 4.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 26 minutes per game during the playoffs, all slightly above his regular-season averages. His production doesn't do fantasy owners much good in standard leagues, unfortunately, but he's tailor-made for the Spurs' selfless offense.
Jul 6 - 6:32 PM

During a press conference in Argentina, Manu Ginobili confirmed that his stress fracture is in the same spot as his 2009 injury, however, it is not as serious.

While the Spurs have yet to offer a timetable for Manu's recovery, this type of injury generally takes 2-3 months to completely heal. Manu stated that he would like to wait another 3-4 weeks before deciding if he'll participate in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, but obviously that's looking extremely doubtful at the moment.
Jul 4 - 9:52 AM

Patty Mills had successful surgery on his torn right rotator cuff on Thursday.

He has no timetable to return, but Mills did get a three-year deal on Thursday to make him feel a little better. The Spurs should have him ready to go for the season and he'll continue to pick up a lot of the scoring slack on the second unit with Manu Ginobili.
Jul 3 - 3:40 PM

The Spurs and Patty Mills (shoulder surgery) have agreed on a three-year deal, according to the San Antonio Express News.

He had an awesome postseason run and may have had a bigger role on another team, but the Spurs will keep him on their bench. Mills doesn't really start too often even when Tony Parker sits out because of Cory Joseph, but he's been a decent per-minute guy for fantasy production. He'll likely provide late-round value once he returns to action, but that might not be until February or March.
Jul 2 - 7:13 PM

Manu Ginobili has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right leg and he's not expected to play for Argentina in the FIBA World Cup this summer.

The Spurs found "the early stages of a stress fracture" during a physical conducted after the season, and Ginobili is in the process of getting a second opinion. The good news is that the 36-year-old is expected to recover in two months, and he should be "fully functional" for the start of training camp.
Jul 2 - 1:55 PM

The Spurs have agreed to a partially guaranteed two-year deal with free agent G Bryce Cotton.

Cotton played for the Providence Friars last year as a senior, notching 21.8 points and 5.9 assists per game and shooting 36.7 percent from downtown. The second season of Cotton's deal will become guaranteed if he makes the roster after training camp, and he'll get his first taste of the NBA as a member of San Antonio's summer league squad. If nothing else, Cotton gives the Spurs some insurance with Patty Mills (shoulder) injured and possibly leaving as a free agent.
Jul 2 - 12:29 PM

Free agent Patty Mills needs shoulder surgery and he's expected to miss at least seven months, including the first 3-4 months of the 2014-15 season.

Mills will soon have surgery to repair the rotator cuff in his right shoulder. He played through the pain during the season and playoffs, but will go under the knife in upcoming days. He'll still be a hot commodity in free agency, but not nearly as hot as he would have been were he entering the season healthy. According to multiple reports, the Spurs are still interested in signing him.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

The Blazers will reportedly pursue unrestricted free agent Boris Diaw.

Diaw's French buddy Nic Batum could factor in here, and the Blazers could have certainly used him with little depth in their frontcourt this past year. Talks are likely in the exploratory stage.
Jul 1 - 3:04 AM

The Spurs are not expected to waive forward Austin Daye.

Daye has gotten way more pub than his production deserves, but theoretically sticking around San Antonio is a good thing for his long-term outlook. He's still way off the fantasy radar.
Jun 30 - 7:03 PM

The Spurs have officially extended a qualifying offer to Aron Baynes, giving them the rights to match any offer he receives when free agency begins July 1.

Baynes is a big body at 6'10", but he's not exactly a hot commodity. Baynes per-36-minute numbers are decent at 11.8 points, and 10.6 rebounds, but his shooting leaves something to be desired at just 43.6 percent from the field. He was not a part of the rotation during the Spurs 2013-14 championship run.
