5. Eric Gordon - Houston Rockets

The San Antonio Spurs could certainly use all the 40+ percent shooters from beyond the arc they can get. Eric Gordon has made a career out of being a lights-out shooter wherever he goes and his hitting almost 44% of his threes with Houston this season.

Still, it wouldn't really make much sense for the Spurs to go after the 33-year-old for the same reason I just outlined with Schroder. Going after the veteran guard would just crowd an already crowded guard position even further, and San Antonio already has a knockdown shooter in Bryn Forbes.

While Gordon offers much more than Forbes defensively, he's not someone that would move the needle very much.

Verdict: Pass

6. Terrence Ross - Orlando Magic

There's definitely something to be said for someone capable of scoring 20 straight points for his team, as Terrence Ross did on Sunday. The 6-6 guard can flat out score from the field and is an excellent free throw shooter.

"He's an elite, elite, elite shooter and scorer," said Magic coach Jamahl Mosley after the performance. "He's been fantastic." Still, the Orlando Magic are very much in a rebuild after tallying just seven wins through 41 games and have fallen to the Spurs twice this season.

As impressive as he's been up until now, again I must point to the fact that the Spurs are already loaded with similar players like Derrick White, Devin Vassell, Keldon Johnson, and Joshua Primo that can play his position. Adding Ross to the mix would only complicate things without giving the Spurs a real payoff in the form of a super skill.

Verdict: Pass
