The Spurs are one of the most successful franchises in NBA history for a long time, the organization and the way the team is being spearheaded is of the utmost class. It is being coached by one of the most decorated NBA coach ever in Gregg Popovich. With the Western Conference teams acquiring huge superstars this offseason the Spurs remain silent, tactical and, as everyone expects, consistent in forming a roster that can compete in every season in the NBA. Here are the updates on the Spurs offseason so far:

Gasol officially re-signs with Spurs

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN has reported that Gasol and the Spurs have reached a three year 48 million dollar deal this offseason with the third year partially guaranteed.

Gasol earlier opted out of his player option; he would have received 16.2 million dollars next season.

Pau Gasol will be entering his 17th season with the Spurs and age has not stopped him from making an impact on both ends of the floors last season despite averaging a career low in minutes. Last season the six time NBA All-Star and two-time NBA Champion averaged 7.7 points, 0.9 blocks, 0.4 steals, 1.9 assists, and 7.9 rebounds while shooting 43.9% from the field and 33.3% from beyond the arc.

Matt Costello signs deal with San Antonio

Zach Lowe of ESPN has reported that Matt Costello has signed a two-way contract with the San Antonio Spurs and their G-League affiliate the Austin Spurs this offseason.

Costello went undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft, he played for Atlanta in last years summer league and later played for the Iowa Energy after his ten-day contract with the Memphis. Costello is very raw but yet shows flashes of potential that could lead him to be a role player in the NBA.

Spurs acquire Brandon Paul

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN has reported that the Spurs and Brandon Paul have reached a one-year deal this offseason. Paul played for years in Illinois and later on went undrafted in the 2013 NBA Draft from then on he played in the D-League and a year in the Spanish Club. Brandon Paul has now proven that he can reach the NBA level, but the Spurs must have seen something in him for them to give him a guaranteed contract for next season.

Dedmon and Simmons leave the Spurs

Dedmon and Simmons were big role players last year for the Spurs, and both of them had their best season so far in the NBA. With the increased role they got last year it was pretty surprising that the Spurs pulled out on qualifying offers for both of them. Dewayne Dedmon is now part of the Atlanta Hawks and will likely soak up all the minutes for Center next season. Jonathan Simmons has signed with the Orlando Magic which gives them depth and someone who can help Fournier on the offensive end. The departure might not affect the Spurs that much with Rudy Gay coming on board this offseason.
