The San Antonio Spurs probably wish they could re-do these draft picks

For the first time since they drafted Tim Duncan back in 1997, the San Antonio Spurs are headed to the lottery this year. There is a chance they could change that with an outstanding performance in Orlando but in all likelihood, the Spurs will have their highest draft pick in over two decades.
