The Spurs landed in the NBA Draft Lottery in consecutive seasons for the first time in franchise history, and while the ping pong balls didn’t bounce their way, they’ll still receive the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
This is only the fifth lottery selection in franchise history for San Antonio. And next month, one lucky prospect will join an incredibly exclusive group headlined by David Robinson, Sean Elliott, Tim Duncan, and Devin Vassell.
With nearly half their roster coming off the payroll and a glaring lack of frontcourt depth, the Silver and Black have plenty to consider and could be interested in a wide range of positions, prospects, and fits in the late lottery.
The 2021 NBA Draft is scheduled for July 29 at 7 PM CST at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. ESPN and ABC will televise the first round, and the second round will broadcast exclusively on ESPN.
