The San Antonio Spurs currently have five players on their roster that can play point guard. When they decided to bring over 2009 draft prospect Nando De Colo, it left many fans wondering where De Colo would fit in with the stockpile of guards, especially those that could play at point.
Gary Neal seems like the odds-on favorite to win the backup spot to Tony Parker while Patty Mills increased his stock with his performance for Australia at the Olympics in London this Summer.
That left sophomore Cory Joseph and rookie Nando De Colo on the outside looking on attempting to earn roster spots as fourth and fifth point guards. De Colo and Neal can both spend time at the two but with Danny Green and Manu Ginobili already penciled into slots there, it seems doubtful that both Joseph and De Colo will stay on the Spurs bench for the entire season and either could be heading north to Cedar Park for stints with the Austin Toros.
Joseph looked like a different player during summer league. He had more poise and confidence running the team and was a vocal leader making smart decisions on the court, a far cry from the inexperienced rookie trying to force the action that ended up with the Toros last season.
