As the San Antonio Spurs prepare to avenge the heartbreaking loss of last year's NBA Finals, one can't help but look to the offseason. No matter what happens this year, there will always be next year and the Spurs may have to face some big changes. Let's take a look at the top five priorities for San Antonio in the offseason.
Boris Diaw has proven his worth by coming up big when no one expected it. Even though he may be getting older, the man can flat out play and is perfect for the Spurs' system. The Spurs will need his silky-smooth game off the bench next year and need to make him an offseason priority.
This year's NBA Draft class has received notable attention compared to last year's and for good reason. The Spurs are known for their masterful selection of "diamonds in the rough" and need to steal a sleeper out of the 2014 class.
There is no doubt that Patty Mills will be a hot commodity in the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. Many teams could profit from his fearless offensive attack, shooting ability and tenacious defense. The Spurs have to secure him for next year if they want to continue the success of their storied franchise.
Whether or not the Spurs come out of the 2014 NBA Finals victorious, this may be Tim Duncan's last go-around. Even though he has a player option for next year, the rumors have be begun and these playoffs have the feeling of a farewell run. The Spurs must pick up a legitimate low post presence to back up or take over the gap that Duncan will leave.
Last offseason was very busy for Tony Parker as he played in the EuroBasket Tournament. The signs of fatigue have been displayed through injuries all season long. The Spurs have to make sure Parker uses this offseason to recover so he can be at 100 percent for next season's run -- with or with Tim Duncan.
