Quantcast 2010 San Antonio Spurs: Danny Ferry joins the Spurs

 

Danny Ferry joins San Antonio Spurs as Vice President

 

 

A few months ago, former Cleveland Cavaliers general manger Danny Ferry was part of the group being held hostage by LeBron James’ demands.  Ferry was forced to include James in every decision made by the franchise regarding player transactions and other matters.  As if this wasn’t bad enough, Ferry was also subjected to inviting James’ high school buddies like Drew Joyce III and Romeo Travis to the Cavs’ summer league. 

To sum Ferry’s position up, he made general manager decisions …..provided LeBron James okayed them first.  It’s a wonder that Ferry didn’t decide to take up a new profession or learn how to play texas hold em after the ordeal he went through in Cleveland.

 



But Ferry once again proved to be an intelligent basketball mind by leaving the Cavs about a month before LeBron headed to Miami.  And it looks like the decision was a smart one as Ferry has found greener pastures in San Antonio. 

Ferry will be San Antonio’s vice president of basketball operations, and this is his second stint in the Spurs’ front office.  His first stint was in 2004 and 2005 when he served as director of pro player personnel.  So Ferry shouldn’t need any help finding his way around San Antonio’s facilities.

Besides being familiar with the Spurs’ organization, Ferry will also be working with some familiar faces in Greg Popovich and R.C. Buford.  Popovich, who coached the Spurs to a championship in 2005 during Danny Ferry’s first stint, is still the team’s head coach while Buford serves as the president of sports franchises for Spurs Sports & Entertainment. 

It’s unclear as to what Ferry’s exact duties will entail besides overseeing the Spurs’ D-League team – the Austin Toros.  But whatever Ferry does in the San Antonio front office, the organization is hoping that he can bring some of what he brought to the Cavaliers; the Cavs were 272-138 during Danny’s five-year tenure, and made their only NBA Finals appearance in 2007.
