The San Antonio Spurs should look for these three shooters on draft night
The San Antonio Spurs struggles from behind the arc have been a thorn in the team’s side for a few years now. While the rest of the league is letting it go from behind the arc at a never before seen pace the Spurs continue to build their offense around attacking the rim and getting shots from the mid-range.
It’s worked out okay for them at times. They were a middle of the pack offense for much of the season and when they did finally start opening up the offense a bit more things worked out well. The unexpected emergence of LaMarcus Aldridge as a 3-point threat was the catalyst that sent DeMar DeRozan on one of the most efficient scoring runs in franchise history. Spacing matters, especially when your best player wants to get to the rim as much as possible.
When we’ve talked about the San Antonio Spurs needs in the 2020 NBA Draft the two positions that come to mind are a stretch four and a 3-and-D wing player. Either way, floor-spacing ability is crucial to whatever prospects the Spurs have their eyes on.
They’re expected to be selecting in the back half of the lottery, all signs point to San Antonio picking 11th in the draft, but thankfully there should be plenty of shooters on the board when it’s the Spurs turn to pick.
Here are three shooters that the San Antonio Spurs should think about taking on draft night.
