Denver Nuggets - Will Barton

The Spurs already made a trade with the Denver Nuggets last month and it's hard to see them striking another deal with one another for someone like Will Barton. He's a talented scorer and outside shooter, but does San Antonio really need another 6-6 hybrid guard/forward? Probably not.

Verdict: Pass

Detroit Pistons - Jerami Grant

While our previous idea of an offer for Jerami Grant is probably a pipe dream, it's a no-brainer that the Spurs would love someone of his caliber on the roster. There has been plenty of chatter about the Pistons dealing him and he has been vocal about wanting a big role on his next team. Whatever San Antonio would have to give up for someone like Grant would probably open up a role like that for him. It's unlikely, but of course I have to say pursue here.

Verdict: Pursue

Golden State Warriors - Moses Moody

"Young players like Jonathan Kuminga, James Wiseman, and Moses Moody aren't expected to be made available," said Bleacher Report's Eric Pincus recently. "But could that change if Draymond Green's calf/back issue becomes a more serious issue?" Honestly, I don't think the Warriors need to make any moves at the deadline and they probably won't. But hey, I had to pick someone. This isn't going to happen though.

Verdict: Pass

Houston Rockets - Eric Gordon

From all the rumblings I've been hearing, Eric Gordon is as close to a surefire choice for someone to be traded at the deadline as anyone. He's a knockdown shooter who can create his own shot and doesn't really fit the Houston Rockets' newly-established young timeline. He also wouldn't fit the Spurs' timeline either, however, and is owed over $40 million over the next couple of years.

Verdict: Pass

Indiana Pacers - Domantas Sabonis

When the Indiana Pacers essentially announced a firesale in December, we were quick to look at ways to get Domantas Sabonis with the Silver and Black. Since then, I've changed my tune a bit about him. He would certainly benefit the Spurs in the short term and would probably help them return to the playoffs next season. I'm just not positive he's the foundational kind of talent that would be worth what they'd have to give up for him. He'd accelerate the rebuild but would cost a lot of future promise in the process.

Verdict: Pass
