No. 1: Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies
Here are a few facts:
First, Ja Morant is an incredibly talented basketball player, well deserving of his All-NBA nod in 2022. Second, the Spurs' biggest weakness is at point guard. Third, a high-level passer would help to unlock Victor Wembanyama's game that much more quickly. Fourth, Ja Morant is one of the best passers in the league.
Finally, Morant's team, the Memphis Grizzlies, is paying him no favors when it comes to a healthy, supporting culture. Could the San Antonio Spurs be a place for him to get his life back together, to gain personal maturity, to stop letting his teammates down? Is Gregg Popovich the right man for the job?
Trading for Ja Morant is a crazy idea, and the Grizzlies certainly aren't quick to sell-low on him. Yet that team might also need a hard culture reset, and if that means sending Morant to another team and building around Desmond Bane and Jaren Jackson Jr., it makes some sense.
The Spurs would have to send a lot of draft capital to the Grizzlies, but it's the kind of deal that is wild enough to possibly work. Could Morant be the right star to pair with Victor Wembanyama? Whether it's Morant, Chris Paul or someone else entirely, the Spurs have plenty of assets and cap space to go after stars and build a contending team around Victor Wembanyama for years to come.
