The preseason injury to Dejounte Murray opened up some opportunity in the San Antonio Spurs backcourt, which has created one of the best point guard situations in the NBA.

The San Antonio Spurs’ 2018-19 season opened under a dark cloud after Dejounte Murray went down with a torn ACL in a preseason game against the Rockets.

The Spurs would lose another point guard option for significant time went Derrick White suffered a preseason heel injury shortly after he was named a starter.

Those injuries allowed Bryn Forbes to get the most playing time of his career in a breakout season, and White has been a revelation when he’s been healthy during his first full NBA season.

Along with the always reliable Patty Mills, San Antonio has the deepest point guard depth chart in the league, and it looks like they could keep this group together during this era led by DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge.

With White’s recent incredible performance against the Atlanta Hawks in an important road win, I felt it was a good time to dive deep into each piece of the Spurs’ talented backcourt and determine what their future looks like in San Antonio based on their contract situation and their fit with the current roster.
