Blake Wesley: B

Another player who has been able to take advantage of his few minutes on the court to make an impact in just his second season in the NBA is Blake Wesley.

Recovering from a torn MCL is a difficult process, but Blake has demonstrated an unwavering desire to succeed. Despite playing only 12 minutes per game, the 20-year-old has managed to average 4.6 points, 2.7 assists, and 1.7 rebounds while harassing the opposing ball handlers relentlessly.

Over the past month, his performance has improved significantly, particularly in the areas of points and assists. This demonstrates that he is a versatile player who, with enough confidence and experience, can contribute in multiple areas of the game.

Tre Jones: B

After the departure of Dejounte Murray, the Spurs have been looking for a point guard who can earn the starting position, bring the team closer to achieving more wins, and, mainly this year, achieve the expected connection with Wembanyama to get the most out of the French superstar.

Tre Jones demonstrated his value to the team after the unsuccessful experiment with Sochan. Although he may not be an all-star, he possesses the necessary qualities to add a touch of brilliance to the team, lead from his position, and contribute more than anyone else in that role.

Tre is currently averaging almost 10 points, 6 assists, and 3 rebounds. He aims to improve upon his previous season's numbers and establish himself as a valuable player for the team. However, the franchise is still in search of an ideal point guard to start long-term. Despite this, Jones' contributions to the team can certainly bring them closer to their ultimate goal.
