1.) Dennis Schroder
Dennis Schroder emerged as the engine of the German national team during the FIBA World Cup, and he has shouldered most of the scoring responsibilities as Franz Wagner recovers from an ankle injury. The 29-year-old guard has been one of the best players at the tournament, averaging 18.0 points and 6.3 assists per game while leading his country to a spotless 6-0 record that includes wins over Japan, Slovenia, and Australia.
Though the veteran floor general signed a two-year deal with the Toronto Raptors this summer, he is a name that should intrigue San Antonio when he hits free agency in 2025. Tre Jones could establish himself as the long-term starter for the Spurs, but there is no guarantee that Devonte' Graham, Blake Wesley, or Cameron Payne end up becoming viable backups. Schroder could be an outstanding sixth man for Head Coach Gregg Popovich.
