Spurs Quietly Winning Free Agency

The San Antonio Spurs are rebuilding their team.

Their main goal is to make sure Victor Wembanyama’s best years are successful. This means they need to improve every season, but they can’t rush it. They have to take small steps before running.

Since June 30, the Spurs have made moves to get better now and stay flexible for the future.

Chris Paul will play with Wembanyama next season, bringing his Hall of Fame skills to the court. His $11 million contract can be traded if a good offer comes up later.

Harrison Barnes is another key player, providing scoring and defense. Davion Mitchell adds toughness on defense too.

Key Additions:

The real highlight of their summer is the draft picks they’ve collected. They got a 2030 first-round pick from the Timberwolves (protected for the first pick), a 2031 unprotected pick swap with the Kings, and another 2031 unprotected first-round pick from the Timberwolves.

These draft picks give them options to trade for star players in the future. The more assets they have, the easier it is to grab a big name when one becomes available.

Fans might think this strategy shows how serious they are about winning in Wembanyama’s prime years.

So far, they’ve done well in free agency by adding veterans and showing they have a plan for success. It might not be flashy, but it’s effective.

What do you think about these moves?
