Danny Ferry Returns to Spurs’ Front-Office

The former Spurs player and exec is back with the ballclub, reports the Express-News: “Danny Ferry, who earned championship rings as a Spurs player and a member of the team’s basketball operations department, will return to the franchise to help the club position for another title run. Ferry, who resigned as general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers before LeBron James’ free agency defection in July, officially will be announced as a member of the Spurs’ front office by week’s end. A member of the Spurs’ 2003 NBA title team, Ferry will replace Dell Demps, the club’s director of pro player personnel.”

    The daunting task before Ferry is how to replace Duncan when he retires sometime in the next few years. Oh, and to make moves to keep the aging Spurs relevant in the West which keeps getting better.

    Where did you see that the West was getting better ? Call me crazy but I believe we can finish 2nd in the West. Our 1-2 rotation is one of the strongest in the League with TP, Manu and Hill and we should be solid at the 4/5, depending on how much Dejuan has improve during the summer and on what Tiago Splitter can give us.
    Our main problem is at the SF position, except Richard Jefferson we have nothing else (and knowing this guy is not really good on D and produce good offense 1 game out of 5, it can be scary)
    Anyway, going the WCF with the 2/3 seed is possible, except for L.A, it’s wide open in the West.

    How is the West getting better? Phoenix is going to be weaker this year without any bigs whatsoever, the Clippers and Grizzlies still play out there, Denver is going to be worse and the Hornets are still a one-man team. The Rockets are in limbo unless Yao Ming can not only prove healthy but that he is back to his old form. Spurs are right in the mix with Thunder, Blazers and Mavericks.

    The West is going to be wide open at least for the first 2 months of season competition: Big names moving to the East and a log jam of teams fighting for seeds 4-8 in the West will keep things very tight. In that way the West has been/is getting “better”. I’m going to offer up my initial rankings even before we get a look at injuries/pre-season camps etc.
    * 1. Los Angeles Lakers – their defense this year will be the best in the West
    * 2. Dallas Mavericks – Not sure if they are a playoff team again this year but certainly will win many games during the season
    * 3. OKC – This once ‘up and coming team’ have now arrived.
    * 4. Utah Jazz – Deron Williams should be crowned the best PG (currently) in the NBA this year, but as usual will pass beneath the radar.
    *5. Portland – Hi. I’m Brandon Roy and my team is healthy…
    *6. Phoenix – Unfortunately their winning season this year will provide them with many highlights but not a strong enough platform for a good playoff run.

    * 7. San Antonio Spurs – Tim Duncan, meet your padawan apprentice: Splitter.
    * 8. Los Angelese Clippers – YAY…a playoff showing…!!
    * 9. Denver Nuggets – Oh well… we didn’t make the playoffs… but we managed to move Carmelo before the trade deadline and got something back. I love a late 1st round pick early in the morning….
    * 10. Houston Rockets – Sure we got Carmello, but Yao’s return lasted all of 25 games…
