 3.) Markelle Fultz

We have now arrived at the most likely proposal in this article. While not the most appealing option, Fultz and his expiring contract give San Antonio a shot at a trial run before deciding if they want to bring him back for the long haul. Most basketball fans know about his lengthy injury history, but the Washington alumnus looks like he is finally on the mend.

Fultz averaged 14.0 points and 5.7 assists per game for the Magic last season while shooting 51.4% from the field. He still has issues connecting from beyond the arc, but he is only 25. The sixth-year guard has a knack for finding the open man and running the show as a true floor general. He plays the game like a young Ricky Rubio and has the upside to continue improving. Markelle also has the size to be a plus defender at his position.

The former first-overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft has untapped potential, and San Antonio could acquire him for next to nothing. Orlando has a surplus of guards and a lack of wing depth. The Spurs could help the Magic out in that department and send a couple of second-round picks to the Magic for Fultz.

The San Antonio Spurs have plenty of options if they want to lock down a long-term point guard for the future. They can also wait until next summer to draft or sign one. No matter what happens, buckle up for a wild and fun season.
