Rumors about the Spurs looking for a solution to their point guard situation have swirled around the internet this offseason. And with reports that the team will allow Tre Jones to test the restricted free waters rather than tender him an extension, San Antonio may need a new starter to pilot the offense in the event he signs an offer sheet with a competitor that the front office is unwilling to match.
There are multiple candidates on the open market, but a trade idea from Tim MacMahon on a recent episode of Brian Windhorst & The Hoop Collective could make perfect sense for the Spurs. With the Washington Wizards shifting toward an all-out rebuild, MacMahon suggests they call San Antonio to gauge their interest in Tyus Jones for a small portion of their abundance of future draft picks.
Jones could be an upgrade over his younger sibling, and perhaps an entertaining pairing should Tre re-sign with the Spurs. Even if Tyus isn't the long-term answer at the one, San Antonio would only be responsible for paying the remaining one-year and $15 million left on his contract. With that in mind, what are the pros and cons of the Silver and Black pursuing a deal to bring Tyus to the 2-1-0?
