The Italian Stallion is on the final contract he signed a year ago. He provided points off the bench, he was one of the best shooters of the team. Using off the ball or by a screen, he can score consecutive points if needed. Belinelli was paid 5.8 million this year.
Speaking to La Gazzieta, Marco made it clear he wants to stay with the team.
” I have another year with San Antonio and I hope to stay there again. Because with Spurs I want to win again, like in 2014.“
Marco Belinelli led the bench in points. As he averaged 10.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game in just 23 minutes of play. He scored double figures in 44 games as he played 79 and started once. Marco had his moments in back to back games against the Thunder. Where he led the team in shooting a three-point shot.
The Spurs front office had plenty of to think. With Murray and Poeltl having an extension to offer before the seasons start. DeRozan had a player option after this season. They need every extra cap space. Belinelli is still useful off the bench and a good teammate. He can still sign with the team in a reasonable contract.
