Spurs fans have plenty to be excited about for the 2023-2024 season. After landing the first overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, it's a foregone conclusion generational prospect Victor Wembanyama will be a San Antonio Spur. With the versatility of a player like Wembanyama, the Spurs have countless options this offseason. With their previous success using the "twin towers" approach with Tim Duncan and David Robinson, it would be no surprise to see San Antonio pursue another big man to pair next to Wemby.

Given Wembanyama's stature, it would be wise to pair him with stronger defenders that can take on the brunt of the physicality. Wemby's strength as a shot blocker is not as a man-to-man defender (although he's no slouch). Instead, it mostly comes when he's playing a "free safety" role, roaming the paint as a helpside defender. Given his preferred position is at power forward, San Antonio must look at acquiring more traditional post defenders to aid Wemby in his transition to the NBA.
