For the first time in years, the San Antonio Spurs made many changes during free agency.
The exit of many players, on some level, was beyond their control. Rudy Gay, Gorgui Dieng, and our beloved Patty Mills were free to walk away. So were DeMar DeRozan and Trey Lyles, although Lyles departure was quite predictable.
While the sign-and-trade involving DeRozan was in the best interest of the Spurs, but no means was a certainty. The trade nabbed Al-Farouq Amino and Thaddeus Young, but the acquisition of additional future draft picks is the real possibility of making this a win.
The Spurs inked deals with Zach Collins, Doug McDermott, Bryn Forbes, Jock Landale, as well as lottery pick Josh Primo and a two-way contract for Joe Wieskamp. Chandler Hutchinson also got his name into the mix via a five-team trade.
While the futures of Aminu, Young, and Hutchinson have yet to solidified, the signing of Forbes has already begun to stir the ire of many fans. That said, there is a lot to examine in hopes of raising the Spurs stock this coming season.
Is there one particular offseason move the Spurs made for which you are most excited? Perhaps a particular player working himself into the fold.
The Spurs have a few weeks of training camps prior to the preseason games. This is the time when the team needs to gel, commit, and formulate the plan that will shape their 2021-2022 season.
What are you most looking forward to from the Spurs?
