Biggest Needs for San Antonio Spurs During 2014 Offseason

The San Antonio Spurs can officially put those 2013 nightmares to rest. After claiming the franchise's fifth title since 1999, this summer's first order of business will be enjoying perhaps its sweetest championship yet.

Then it will get down to business.

San Antonio owns the 30th selection in this summer's draft, a pick that could well be used on international talent to be stashed away for another year or two. Most of the club's biggest needs can be satisfied internally. Winning it all in 2014 is a testament to that.

Changes will be in order soon enough, but there's a good chance they can be averted for at least another season. 

Much hinges on whether Tim Duncan retires. Should he do so, San Antonio's offseason will become a pivotal point in the franchise's history. But if the 38-year-old sticks around for another season, focus will remain on improving this group from within.

Duncan's decision may not weigh as heavily as the one he once made in 2000 to remain with the franchise. All the same, it's a pretty important one. It won't shape the team's long-term future, but it will dictate its short-term decision making.

While the rest of the league's teams spend their summers looking to reach the top, San Antonio will be working to stay there. Here's a look at the club's first priorities.
