1. Pascal Siakam

Why not, right? The 2024 free agency class isn't the most impressive in terms of star power. However, amongst the best available is Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam -- a versatile forward who was just named to his second All-NBA team.

Depending on what the Spurs decide they want to do with Jeremy Sochan, Siakam could slide right next to Victor Wembanyama in the starting frontcourt for the 2024-25 season. The pairing would likely give opposing teams fits in the paint, while helping to fuel a diverse offense.

Though Siakam seems like a good fit with the Spurs on paper, there is one big roadblock preventing a move from happening -- he seems happy in Toronto.

Back in April he even expressed desire to remain with the franchise past his current contract.

“It's something we haven't really talked about. I don't know what's going to happen,” Siakam said when asked about signing a contract extension with the Raptors, according to TSN's Josh Lewenberg. “This is the most I've been somewhere outside of Cameroon. It feels like home. I would love to be in Toronto [long term]. It's part of who I am as a person.”

The 29-year-old is coming off of a solid season in Toronto. He suited up in 71 games for the Raptors, playing about 37.4 minutes each time. Siakam averaged 24.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game, while shooting 48.0% from the field and 32.4% from beyond the arc.

Though his touch from distance could use work, those are some numbers that San Antonio would gladly pay for. If they were to pursue Siakam, they'd probably have to offer a three or four year contract worth $120-150 million.

It's a steep price tag, but the Cameroonian would bring added championship experience to a young Spurs team.
