The 2022 NBA Draft is right around the corner, and the San Antonio Spurs are in a potentially profitable position to capitalize on their surplus of first and second-round picks. PATFO have pieced together an intriguing young core around Dejounte Murray over the last couple of years, but could they be tempted to expedite the rebuild?

Selecting Devin Vassell and Josh Primo inside the lottery in back-to-back seasons signals San Antonio is in the business of adding talent regardless of position. Keeping that in mind, the Silver and Black should have tons of frontcourt options at practically any spot in this class, so will they bolster their big man rotation alongside Jakob Poeltl?
