4. Otto Porter Jr.

Height: 6-8

Age: 28

While he may have never lived up to the hype of being drafted third overall in 2013, Otto Porter Jr. has carved out a very solid NBA career over the last nine years. He's persevered through many difficult injuries and shown himself to be a true pro's pro, always putting the team above himself.

This year for Golden State, Porter has put up 8.2 points per game off the bench on 46% shooting while playing just 22 minutes per night. He did it while focusing on his defense, knocking down open shots, and making sure he was getting good looks for his teammates. His outside shot has been money too.

While he's not the most talented player on this list, Porter's selflessness in his play style is something that could suit this group of young Spurs well. In a way, he could bring to the Spurs' frontcourt what Josh Richardson brought to the backcourt in the second half of the season -- off-ball scoring ability and versatile defensive capability.

Verdict: Pursue
