Overall Offseason Grade
Not every move in a summer is of equal importance. Nailing the No. 1 pick is worth a lot more than missing on the 44th pick. On the biggest move of the summer, the Spurs got it right.
They also made a number of positive moves around that draft pick. Tre Jones and Cam Payne are solid point guards who can help get the ball to Wembanyama in places to help him score and develop. They got great value on all three of their new player contracts, and decent-enough value on the trades. They didn't solve all of their future questions, including who will start at point guard long-term, but it was a good use of resources for the season of team-building they are in.
