Considering Bryn Forbes’ future with the Spurs

The fourth year guard is up for a contract renewal this offseason

There are many questions looming in the Spurs offseason. None seems bigger than whether DeMar DeRozan will entertain free agency or stay with the Spurs.

Whether the elder Spurs guard maintains his leadership role in San Antonio, there will be changes.

One of many changes could be to see Bryn Forbes in a jersey belonging to another franchise.

The undrafted Michigan Spartan joined the Spurs in 2016 and played a minor role coming off the bench. Since then, Forbes has seen his role increase.

Each summer, Bryn has spent more time in the gym bulking up and honing his sharpshooting.

With the ACL injury to Dejounte Murray two years ago, Forbes found himself in the starting line-up for 81 of the 82 regular season games. He tallied career highs in nearly every category including minutes played, points per game, a shooting percentages.

If the bubble was any indication of the future the Spurs will head into the truncated 2020-2021 season guard heavy. Derrick White’s dominance in Orlando should earn him a starting spot alongside Dejounte Murray. Lonnie Walker IV, Keldon Johnson, and Quinndary Weatherspoon are all making cases for themselves off the bench. The longest tenured Spurs player Patty Mills will be returning for the final year of his contract.

Forbes has consistently suffered the comparison to Mills and been labeled as redundant. Unfortunately, it may not come to skill sets as much as whose contract was up.

With an aging LaMarcus Aldridge rehabbing and Jakob Poeltl also facing an option to dip his toe in the water of free agency, the Spurs may have to loose a guard in order to bring in a big man or a true power forward.

Do you think the Spurs will bring Bryn Forbes back for his fifth season? Do you think they should?
