3.) Theo Maledon
Maledon is someone the Spurs should take a flyer on. Charlotte can match any offer that comes his way, but there's a strong possibly they don't do that. The Hornets just drafted two guard a couple of weeks ago, and they aready have LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier, and James Bouknight. That logjam may benefit San Antonio.
Considering the recently Spurs selected a generational French prospect with the number one overall pick, it certainly seems like a no-brainer to add one of his young compatriots to the roster. In fact, the front office used their second-rounder to snag another talented Frenchman. Maledon might feel right at home next to Victor Wembanyama and Sidy Cissoko.
Though he isn’t the most efficient scorer, shooting just 37% from the field and 31% from three for his career, Maledon is a rock-solid facilitator. He averaged 3.5 assists per game as a reserve in Charlotte, which was over a one assist increase from the previous season.
Standing 6-foot-5, Maledon has the potential to create mismatches as one of the bigger point guards in the league. As for his intangibles, Maledon has logged 389 games of NBA and overseas expereince despite turning 22 years old last month, which would make him one of the most battle-tested players on the roster.
For the right price, which shouldn’t be too high, Maledon could be a nice addition for the Spurs.
