Developing Rookies

Do y'all think the Spurs are too slow in developing rookies? They don't get much playing time and are on such a short leash.

Maybe, a better question is, can the spurs develop prospects(regardless of draft position) into good players at the speed which they do, and still expect to retain players they have already helped achieve their potential? I think Kawhi isn't as demanding if we had players with half his skill. If they could do that they wouldn't need loyalty contracts and loyalty minutes.

About Jaron's progress, and where it may lead him next:

Opportunity knocking for Spurs’ Blossomgame
The small-ball revolution championed by the Warriors and Rockets places a premium on players like Blossomgame, a 6-foot-7 wing player who can switch pick-and-rolls and defend multiple positions. That skill — combined with a Spurs roster uncharacteristically in flux this summer — could be Blossomgame’s ticket to the NBA. Selected 59th overall out of Clemson, the 24-year-old Blossomgame spent the 2017-18 campaign with the Spurs’ G-League affiliate in Austin, and without an NBA contract. On the strength of a breakout Summer League this year, Blossomgame has emerged as a strong candidate to join the Spurs in training camp this fall.

“We’ve been really happy with the progress Jaron has made,” Spurs summer league coach Will Hardy said. “The thing you like the most about him is that he is so versatile. He can guard different positions, and that’s so important in today’s NBA.”

Hardy offers an interesting comparison for what Blossomgame might become: Tucker, the pugnacious Rockets forward who Blossomgame followed with such interest in the last season’s playoffs. In order to get there, Blossomgame will have to add to his offensive repertoire. Tucker, the former University of Texas standout, secured a permanent NBA role only after he molded himself into a serviceable 3-point shooter.

History is working against Blossomgame a bit. The Spurs have typically taken their time bringing second-round picks to the NBA. They haven’t signed second-rounder to an NBA contract within two years of his draft class since DeJuan Blair in 2009. In Las Vegas and beyond, Blossomgame aims to compel the Spurs to speed up his own timetable.

“The main thing they want me to do is be aggressive defensively and attack the glass,” Blossomgame said. “Just be a glue guy out there for us.”

Blossomgame has been doing that for the Summer Spurs. What happens next is largely out of his hands.

An interesting note as to why teams have to be sure about the development of their second round picks:

With the big club crowded at the guard position and the time for his opportunity running out, Austin Spur and consummate pro Jeff Ledbetter is heading to Europe. He played a big role in the Austin Spurs winning the 2018 G League title. Best of luck, Jeff!

Only six returning players on a 15-man training camp roster. It'll be interesting to see how the new group comes together in our system:

Hopefully he can make this season less depressing seeing how mediocre the teams played I wouldn't be surprised if pop plays this rookie.
