Minnesota Timberwolves - Josh Okogie

According to our colleagues at Dunking With Wolves, there has been some interest from teams like the Utah Jazz for Josh Okogie. Where he specializes is at the defensive end of the floor, but his career percentage of 27.4 from beyond the arc over three-plus seasons is a huge red flag.

Verdict: Pass

New Orleans Pelicans - Josh Hart

As our friend Aaron Kellerstrass at Pelican Debrief stated a couple of months ago, Josh Hart's contract would be very appealing for a team looking for a good shooter without risking too much. He's only guaranteed through this year and partially next, with his third year being a player option. That said, Kellerstrass also thinks Hart is tired of playing on a rebuilding team, and the Spurs are stocked up on guards with similar skills.

Verdict: Pass

New York Knicks - Julius Randle

This might come as a surprise to some, but according to NBA Insider Ian Begley, Julius Randle could be available for the right price ahead of the trade deadline. The Knicks sit at just 24-29 through Sunday and have plenty of questions to answer as the season goes on. That said, he's set to make $23.7 million next season and that figure only increases over the following three seasons up to $29.4 million. He'd obviously be a premier get for San Antonio, but I don't see any realistic scenario in which this even comes close to happening and he ends up being a franchise-shifting acquisition.

Verdict: Pass

Oklahoma City Thunder - Derrick Favors

The Oklahoma City Thunder have the cap space to take on a big contract and facilitate salary dumps as they continue their rebuild through the trade deadline. Derrick Favors could be someone they use in such a deal, but neither he nor the financial help the Thunder have to offer the Spurs is something they need.

Verdict: Pass

Orlando Magic - Terrence Ross

Terrence Ross has had his name involved in several trade talks as the Orlando Magic look to get their franchise back on track. He's a decent scorer overall, but his outside shooting has dropped off in the last couple of seasons and he's now 31.

Verdict: Pass
