Pop unsure if McDyess will be back

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is unsure if veteran power forward Antonio McDyess will return for a 16th season in the NBA.

Popovich offered few hints of what players his team could be interested in picking up in free agency, or even if McDyess would return.

“I don’t know,” Popovich said when asked about McDyess during a press conference Friday afternoon at the team’s training facility. ”I don’t know the status of a lot of guys.”

McDyess, who turned 37 in September, hinted at retirement after the Spurs’ first-round playoff loss to Memphis last season. He averaged a career-low 5.3 points per game and 5.4 rebounds  in 73 games for the Spurs last season and 5.7 points and 5.0 rebounds in the playoffs against Memphis.
