2 Spurs that earned untouchable status, 2 that should be cut loose
Untouchable: Devin Vassell
Devin Vassell might be the only other untouchable player on this roster as the Spurs approach a crucial offseason for their rebuild. He exploded as a legitimate candidate for Most Improved Player of the Year before nagging knee soreness and a subsequent arthroscopic procedure forced him to sit out for nearly two months.
The third-year guard has averaged 18.5 points and 3.6 assists per game in a newfound role as the undisputed second option for San Antonio. While it has been tough sledding for Vassell since returning from the injury report, he has displayed promising three-level scoring potential when he receives extended minutes and a longer leash to test his limits.
Fans have witnessed Vassell develop into an elite midrange shooter and a highly accurate catch-and-shoot three-point marksman, and he should be healthy enough to build upon that foundation this summer. If he enhances his self-creation package and learns how to get to the rim more often, the six-six swingman could contend for All-Star status.
