With several big free agent moves coming up, the San Antonio Spurs roster could look drastically different in the coming months

In the coming months, the San Antonio Spurs will have to make a series of decisions that will drastically change the future of the franchise over the next few years. Even if the league was not navigating uncharted waters, wrestling with how to best resume play, and struggling to quantify the financial impacts of COVID-19 on the NBA, the Spurs would still have been in some of the most crucial months of their year.

When the season was suspended San Antonio sat outside the playoffs looking in. It’s an uncomfortable position for a franchise that has made making the playoffs an expected result over the past two decades.

If the NBA is unable to return to play before the 2021 season the Spurs historic streak of playoff appearances will endure, but it will have an asterisk next to it. That asterisk is significant, it means that for the first time in a long time, the Spurs need to seriously reevaluate the makeup of their team.

Lacking a true superstar the Spurs will need to get the absolute most out of every player on the roster if they want to get back to the playoffs. That means making sure that everyone is in the best position possible in order to help the team succeed. With that in mind, here are a few potential position battles to keep your eye on as San Antonio works their way through the summer.
