The San Antonio Spurs failed to make the playoffs for the fifth straight season, giving them plenty of time to plan out their summer. Spurs fans are probably hoping for a big offseason and a major trade that could put them back in contention, especially now that they have Victor Wembanyama.

With Wembanyama, the Spurs have a potential superstar they can build around, and that may suddenly make San Antonio a destination city. The team has plenty of assets needed to make a significant move. With several stars potentially available, they will have options, but they will have to choose carefully to avoid affecting what they have built negatively.

On the other hand, the Spurs' former rivals, the Phoenix Suns, are the latest super team to implode in the playoffs, leading to questions about whether their stars will be available this offseason. If that turns out to be the case, then the Spurs might be among the teams interested in making a deal. But what deal would make sense for both teams? Next, we will take a look at a potential Spurs-Suns trade and see whether the Spurs would agree to a potential blockbuster.
