Kurt Thomas to the Spurs
Scrappy and ancient, it's amazing it took this long for Kurt Thomas to become a Spur. The Spurs desperately needed help on the front line and they got it. But by plugging the one hole in the dam, they had to take their finger of another. Trading Brent Barry means that, after Ginobili, the Spurs will be offensively challenged at the two/three. They also gave up a first rounder in next year's draft, when they need new blood more than a starving vampire. All things considered, this was still the right move.
