Jeremy Sochan is undoubtedly one of the brightest young assets for the future of the San Antonio Spurs. And while he is still improving his game in many areas, he has already shown his hunger to make the NBA Playoffs as soon as he can.
As the playoffs begin and the drama unfolds on the court, Sochan shared his desire to be part of the best time of the NBA season. While the Silver and Black losing so many games might have some fans worried about a possible departure from Sochan if the franchise can't turn things around, this offseason could flip their fortunes and place San Antonio back in the postseason picture.
After a disastrous season for the Spurs, head coach Gregg Popovich and the front office got to see which players have what it takes to be part of a rebuild that could take them back to the top of the NBA. Now it's all about mixing that young talent with experience, incoming draft selections, and savvy free agency signings.
The future looks bright for San Antonio. They will have over $40M in cap space to spend in free agency, one of the first picks in the upcoming draft (guaranteed top-seven pick), and two second-rounders this summer. And the draft capital will continue to flow into the organization next year as the Spurs have a protected first-rounder from Charlotte and Toronto, potentially giving them three first-round selections in the 2024 NBA Draft.
There is still a chance that the Spurs will miss out on the NBA Playoffs next season. However, the rebuilding process is well underway, and several of their core players are improving. With the arrival of more valuable assets from free agency and the draft, it won't be long before we see this team suit up in the postseason series again.
