Re: San Antonio Spurs: For Old Time Sake | 2k13 Association

Today marks a new month, but also a new home for 3 NBA players.
The Los Angeles Clippers finalized a deal with the San Antonio Spurs today, sending Eric Bledsoe and their 2013 2nd round pick (unprotected) in exchange for Gary Neal and Aron Baynes.
Neal is an unrestricted free agent this coming offseason, and averaged 5.7ppg on 43% shooting in 12.9mpg during his 48 game tenure with the Spurs this season.
Bledsoe is confirmed to debut tomorrow in San Antonio against the Wizards (provided he passes his physical), and Neal will presumably debut Sunday in Boston as the Clippers take on the Celtics (same conditions for physical apply).
The two teams will meet twice more this season. In Los Angeles on the 21st of this month (NBA Trade Deadline) and in San Antonio on the 29th of March. The season series is currently tied 1-1.
