After winning the 2014 NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs have a few questions to address during the upcoming free agency period. Tim Duncan may be retiring, and championship contributors Patty Mills and Boris Diaw will be free agents. San Antonio hopes these key contributors will return, but if they do not, other viable free agent options are available.

Epke Udoh, a former sixth overall pick of the Golden State Warriors, has mightily disappointed in his first three years in the NBA. He's already been on two different teams, and has been considered a bust so far. Udoh's strength is on the defensive end, where he blocks shots at an efficient rate using his length. San Antonio is the perfect place for Udoh to revive his NBA career, playing alongside savvy veterans and under coach Gregg Popovich.

CJ Miles could provide the Spurs with another three-point specialist. Miles, who faced an injury-riddled 2014 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, may be a cheap option to round out San Antonio's bench. Manu Ginobili's age is a concern for the Spurs, and another option to have off of the bench would certainly be a good idea.

With Tim Duncan possibly retiring, the Spurs will have to look for a potential option to take some of his minutes. Channing Frye showed this past season with the Phoenix Suns that he can consistently make shots from the behind the arc and rebound the basketball. Frye fits the label of a veteran who knows his role, and playing for a championship contender like San Antonio would appeal to him.

If the Spurs cannot resign Patty Mills after his illustrious 2014 NBA Finals performance, San Antonio can look to Jordan Farmar. Farmar shot nearly 44 percent from behind the arc this past season with the Los Angeles Lakers, and he would be a capable backup point guard. Farmar displayed a strong ability rack up assists last year with the Los Angeles Lakers, tallying nearly 5 assists per game in only 22 minutes of play.

The Spurs may also struggle to resign Boris Diaw, and Ryan Kelly may prove to be a viable replacement. Although Kelly does not have the passing or playmaking ability that Diaw possesses, Kelly is a solid stretch four. He can shoot the ball from deep, and his basketball IQ is similar to many players already present on the San Antonio roster.
