5. Tre Jones
The final name on our list may shock some, but Tre Jones should absolutely be considered a top trade candidate for the Spurs at this deadline. He has now officially been San Antonio's starting point guard for around a month since the 'point Sochan' experiment was officially put to rest.
But the fact that he has been in the starting lineup does not guarantee him a spot on this team going forward. Yes, Victor Wembanyama's numbers have improved since Tre became a starter due to his basketball IQ and ability to find his teammates. But the reality is that while he has his moments, Jones is not a starting caliber point guard in this league.
That is not a diss to Tre or his basketball ability in any way. It is a simple acknowledgement that if the Spurs are seeking to become a championship contender, they will need to employ a different starting point guard when things are all said and done. Jones is not quick enough, athletic enough, or a good enough shooter to be this team's long-term option at point.
Tre still has an additional year left on his contract. There would appear to be a solid chance at least one team would be willing to take him on for a season and a half before considering re-signing him.
