6. Alabama - Keon Ellis, G

Most intriguing attribute: Keon Ellis plays the passing lanes with tenacity and deflects at a high rate, as shown by his 1.9 steals per game.

How he'd help the Spurs: He's a 6-6 guard out of Alabama. If Joshua Primo doesn't work out for whatever reason, maybe they could have a do-over?

11. Notre Dame - Nate Laszewski, F

Most intriguing attribute: Stroking the outside shot at a staggering 46.2% and sinking 84.4% of his free throws, his pure shot is definitely his biggest asset.

How he'd help the Spurs: As a 6-10 power forward who can shoot and rebound, Laszewski already checks a lot of boxes for what the Spurs desperately need. Don't be surprised if you see him pop up in the G League in the near future.

3. Texas Tech - Bryson Williams, F

Most intriguing attribute: You might be sensing a theme at this point. Bryson Williams is yet another frontcourt player capable of knocking down threes. He made 34 of 84 for Texas Tech this season for a 40.5% rate.

How he'd help the Spurs: Williams brings decent rebounding and athleticism while being able to stroke the three-ball.

14. Montana St. - Jubrile Belo, F

Most intriguing attribute: Belo is a bit of a bruiser inside, as you can tell from his 60% field goal clip across three seasons at Montana State.

How he'd help the Spurs: The 6-9 forward already does a serviceable job of scoring and snatching boards inside, but his improving defense is what could eventually make him a prospect to watch down the road.
