2. Take a flier on someone like Moses Brown

If the Spurs are feeling particularly adventurous, they could use their open roster spot to take a chance on a new prospect entirely. One option to consider is 7-2 center Moses Brown, who most recently played for the Dallas Mavericks but was waived so they could complete their trade of Kristaps Porzingis.

Brown officially cleared waivers on Sunday but has yet to be picked up. Just a few weeks younger than Wieskamp, Brown has spent three seasons in the league but has yet to find a permanent home, playing for Portland, Oklahoma City, and Dallas.

Brown has a nice bounce in his game that makes him a constant lob threat who can battle on the glass and keep possessions alive. He also has the ability to block shots that could improve with some positional coaching and mentoring.

Moses has shown flashes over the years, most recently having a 15-point, six-rebound game in December and putting up a monster 24-point, 18-rebound perfomance for the Thunder last May.

Adding some size and versatility in the frontcourt couldn't hurt, and Brown wouldn't be a bad gamble.
