3: Staying passive on draft night

Spurs fans don't need to go into draft night with high expectations. By that point, we will have been celebrating the Wembanyama news for weeks. All that's left to do is kick our feet up and watch him walk across the stage to shake Adam Silver's hand. But that doesn't mean the Spurs' front office can take the night off too.

The Spurs are rumored to be looking at other first-round picks. They've been doing their research on other lottery-bound players such as Houston's Jarace Walker and Kentucky's Cason Wallace. Are they simply doing their due diligence or preparing to make a move?

There are plenty of teams across the first round that San Antonio should be prepared to make a deal with. Whether someone wants picks, young players, or a trusted veteran, the Spurs have assets to match. They can get as aggressive as they want if they start to see a player they're targeting sliding down the board on draft night.

That doesn't necessarily mean San Antonio has to package all their future draft picks to move up and get an All-Star talent like Brandon Miller or Scoot Henderson. That would be a bit too aggressive for where they are now. But with so many first-round picks coming their way over the next few years, the Spurs shouldn't hold back on cashing in a few to pick a player they're really high on.
