4. Keldon Johnson

Not many would have seen this conversation coming before the season began, but Keldon Johnson could also be a player the Spurs could look to move on from very soon. It was just 18 months ago San Antonio inked him to a four-year, $80 million contract extension in July 2022.

After re-signing with the team, Keldon went on to have what remains his best professional season in 2022-23, leading the Spurs in scoring at 22 points per night while putting up five rebounds and nearly three assists per night as well. Sometimes, guys might fall into a slump after a payday. But with Dejounte Murray out of town, Keldon was thriving as one of San Antonio's top scoring options.

Unfortunately, he has taken a small step back in the current season. No longer being relied upon as a primary scorer and coming off the bench since the end of December, Johnson's numbers have dipped a bit and it has affected his performance, as he has made some questionable decisions at the end of certain games.

If the Spurs trust Victor Wembanyama to be the offensive manifesto he has the potential to be and if they want to invest in Devin Vassell to anchor the team's perimeter scoring, a trade involving Keldon is not out of the question.
