4 Stars the Spurs can trade for to pair with Victor Wembanyama
No. 2: DeMar DeRozan, Chicago Bulls
Some of Victor Wembanyama's skillset will translate immediately to the NBA, but some things will take time. While his handle and shake are light years ahead of most teenage big men, he is unlikely to be a high-level shot creator for himself right from the jump.
Enter DeMar DeRozan, a player who reinvented his game with the Spurs a few years back. He can take on the primary scoring load, scoring and playmaking while Wembanyama works as the second option. DeRozan is notorious for raising a team's offensive floor and not its ceiling, but as time went on DeRozan would pass the reigns to Wembanyama.
At age 33 DeRozan is still playing extremely well. Last season he averaged 27.9 points per game, and 24.5 percent the year before that. He developed as a passer with the Spurs and has carried that over into his play with the Chicago Bulls as well.
DeRozan isn't the perfect fit, but it's very likely he can't find a landing spot on a contender. That could mean that a team like San Antonio is the best short-term fit, and the orgniazation truly seemed to love him during his stay. Time for another DeRozan revival?
