Brooklyn Nets - Nic Claxton

According to a Brian Windhorst report from January, there's been some chatter around the Brooklyn Nets that they might be seeing what the trade market looks like for Nic Claxton. The biggest reason for the rumors? Their upcoming looming financial questions. The 6-11 center offers size, athleticism, and a finishing ability the Spurs need, and they should certainly be interested in the 22-year-old.

Verdict: Pursue

Charlotte Hornets - P.J. Washington

What jumps off the page about Charlotte Hornets 6-7 power forward P.J. Washington is his shooting percentage from the outside. For his career, he's knocking down threes at a rate of 38.5% and has that mark up to 40% this year. He's a great talent and could space the floor, but I can't help but think the Spurs need more size at the four position on top of those attributes.

Verdict: Pass

Chicago Bulls - Coby White

A few weeks ago, our colleagues at Pippen Ain't Easy ranked Coby White as the Chicago Bull most likely to be traded by the deadline. While he's proven to be a valuable two-way player on a thriving team, his value is at a high right now and could be flipped if they think they can get a piece back to help chase an NBA title. That said, while he'd be a great addition, the Spurs are set at the point guard position.

Verdict: Pass

Cleveland Cavaliers - Cedi Osman

In a recent column, Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report said the Spurs had an interest in Cavaliers swingman Cedi Osman. I covered in detail why he wouldn't move the needle in San Antonio very much shortly after.

Verdict: Pass

Dallas Mavericks - Jalen Brunson

Jalen Brunson is a great player who's having a career year in Dallas and has torched the Spurs several times in recent matchups. That said, recent reports say he prefers re-signing with the Mavericks and a trade is likely off the table unless a major offer is thrown their way. I don't think San Antonio needs his services enough to shake things up that much.

Verdict: Pass
