1) Brandon Ingram

The Duke alum has blossomed into a great scorer in the NBA. Ingram, a 20-plus scorer in five consecutive years, would be a legit scoring threat and a solid signing for San Antonio. Eventually, Wembanyama will get heavier pressure from opposing teams and San Antonio needs someone to carry the scoring load when it happens. Ingram could have a hefty price tag but sometimes you have to pay to play.

2) OG Anunoby

OG Anunoby can make a case for being the NBA's best wing defender. Anunoby can guard positions 1-5, making it look easy. His wide frame, great instincts, and toughness could give San Antonio a huge boost defensively. For a team that has struggled on defense in recent years, Anunoby could be a home-run signing.

3) Lauri Markkanen

Power forward Lauri Markkanen had been mentioned as a possible Spur summers ago when he was with the Chicago Bulls. Now, two years later and with a cheaper price tag, this could be a better time to get him. His dynamic shooting ability and athleticism make him a mismatch for most defenses.

They say better late than ever and Markkanen coming to San Antonio in 2025 could prove to be the right move.
