7. Michigan St. - Max Christie, G

Most intriguing attribute: Max Christie has a still-developing yet already intriguing offensive variety in scoring the ball.

How he'd help the Spurs: San Antonio is in need of someone capable of creating their own shot, which Christie does well. That said, he'll likely stay in college for another year to draw real value in 2023.

10. Davidson - Hyunjung Lee, G

Most intriguing attribute: There's no doubt Hyunjung Lee can shoot the ball. He's at 39.6% through three seasons at Davidson on a higher volume of threes taken (5.2) than anyone on this year's Spurs besides Devin Vassell.

How he'd help the Spurs: Lee would help San Antonio from both the 3-point line and free throw line (82.3%), another area they've struggled mightily with this season.

2. Duke - Paolo Banchero, F

Most intriguing attribute: At 6-10, 250 pounds, Paolo Banchero is completely well-rounded and has one of the highest basketball IQs among college prospects in recent years.

How he'd help the Spurs: Paolo is a three-level scorer that's already polished and mature enough to make an immediate difference in the Spurs' frontcourt. He'd be a perfect fit in San Antonio if they either get really lucky in the Draft Lottery on May 17th or move up to the top three in June's draft.

15. CSU Fullerton - E.J. Anosike, F

Most intriguing attribute: Even though he's just 6-7, the team name Titan suits E.J. Anosike well when you look at his interior game. He'll be scrappy and fight for loose boards, box out, and attack the rim to draw fouls -- DeJuan Blair would be an apt comparison.

How he'd help the Spurs: Anosike averaged 5.6 free throw attempts per game this season at CSU Fullerton -- more than anyone on the current Spurs by over two (Murray, 3.4).
