The Scoop:Bonner is a sparingly-used 3-point specialist, and he's liable to rack up DNP-CDs throughout the season. He only started tonight because Tiago Splitter (calf) was unavailable. Fantasy owners may want to watch him this season, but only to read his blog about the world's best sandwiches.
The Scoop:The 34-year-old re-signed with the Spurs for one season, but has a much longer-term view about his NBA career. "I plan to play as long as possible," Bonner said. "Up to 40 years old, that would be great! I will take year by year and see if the team needs me and if I'm still healthy enough to play." Despite his desire to keep playing for another six years, Bonner only averaged 3.2 points per game in 2013-14 and shouldn't be rostered in even the deepest of fantasy leagues.
The Scoop:"I had several teams calling me to check about my availability," said Bonner. "And I kept telling everyone I wanted to wait and see what happens with the Spurs because that was my No. 1 option." The Spurs have reassembled the entire cast from their 2013-14 title run (sans Aaron Baynes) and will again look for another championship as Manu Ginobili, and Tim Duncan head into the final year of their contracts.
The Scoop:It's reportedly at the minimum and it would be hard to imagine him in any other uniform. Bonner has been with the Spurs since 2006, but his minutes dropped to a career-low 11.3 minutes per game last season.
