The Spurs are frantically scouring for answers after a catastrophic start to their season. San Antonio is in the heart of a 12-game losing streak, and it has sent fans into tumult, wondering whether Gregg Popovich still has the touch to turn this organization around. Despite the disappointment, recent reports indicate the front office could execute sweeping changes to their roster in the near future.

According to the latest intel from Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the Spurs are willing to make Doug McDermott, Devonte' Graham, and Cedi Osman available ahead of the trade deadline And with the franchise in rebuild mode, it only makes sense for them to think about parting with their three oldest players. But should San Antonio seriously consider keeping any of those veterans for the long haul?

Fold: Devonte' Graham

San Antonio has struggled to generate much momentum on the offensive end during the Sochan experiment, and this team is desperate for reliable playmaking and additional floor spacing around Wembanyama. Even after a slow start, Coach Popovich has continued leaving Graham at the end of the bench, with the sharpshooting combo guard suiting up for 36 minutes across three garbage-time appearances this season.

The 28-year-old has slipped out of the regular rotation, and it is no shock that his name popped up on the rumor mill on Wednesday. He may not be the most productive player. However, he could be an enticing trade target for teams looking to match salaries since the last season of his contract is only partially guaranteed for $2.8 million in 2024. Spurs fans should brace themselves for a relatively sparse return for Graham.
