Sandro Mamukelashvili: Smallest bargain

While the national media has had their attention turned sharply away from the Spurs for the last two seasons with them being nowhere near a playoff appearance, San Antonio has quietly been getting things done and putting together a roster of players that will eventually be noticed down the line when Wembanyama gets them in the national spotlight in the postseason once again.

One rotation guy that has seldom been given the credit he deserves in Sandro Mamukelashvili. The player affectionately referred to as Mamu by Spurs fans has put together a solid season and a half with San Antonio. Much like Champagnie, he was signed to a standard deal last summer after impressing in a brief span of time at the end of the 2022-23 season.

Unlike Champagnie, Sandro's contract was agreed upon last offseason for just one season, on a $2 million base salary. Based on what he has provided on the court, that is an extremely reasonable deal, and it seems a near guarantee that he will be returning next season.

Mamu is a fantastic fit as a role player next to Wembanyama. At 6-foot-11, he may not be a starting-caliber player, but he can bring big value as a physical player on the interior that can rebound and space the floor with his shooting as well.
