The San Antonio Spurs should avoid these three players in free agency
With several matchups with marquee teams left on their schedule and a possible date with the Golden State Warriors in the play-in tournament, the San Antonio Spurs have quite a bit of excitement left in the 2020-21 NBA season. But you couldn’t be blamed for having an eye towards the summer.
Armed with one of the most exciting young cores in the league and a boatload of cap space, the Spurs are well-positioned to shake things up and start the next era of Spurs basketball in just a few months. With just north of $52 million dollars to spend, the Spurs should have their pick of the free-agent market.

If handled correctly, this can be the summer where the Spurs turn the page and begin the next phase of their rebuild, but adding one of these three free agents would only hurt that process. Here are the three free agents they should avoid in free agency this summer.
