With one-third of the NBA season now in the books, the San Antonio Spurs now have a good idea of how their roster fits. The Spurs appear likely to make a deal or two before the trade deadline in February, and with 18 players on their roster, several could be on the move. Of course, some players are more likely than others to be moved, but what is the likelihood of each Spur being traded?

Tier 5: Not worth it

18) Charles Bediako
17) David Duke Jr.
16) Dominick Barlow
15) Sidy Cissoko

This group is reserved for players who have little to no chance of being traded, not because they are invaluable to the team but because they have little value to other teams. The two most intriguing of the four are Dominick Barlow and Sidy Cissoko, but they are still commodities without enough value to warrant a call from other teams.

Barlow is a 6'9 power forward who is a nice finisher around the rim and possesses defensive potential when guarding away from the basket. He is in his second season with the Spurs, and while he has a chance to be a capable NBA player, Barlow still has a ways to go before he reaches that point.

Meanwhile, Cissoko was San Antonio's second-round pick and projects to be a big and bruising wing with some playmaking skill. He probably won't see much time this season or even next in the NBA, and he develops in the G-League, but there's hope that he can turn into a player for the Spurs. Despite their potential, Barlow and Cissoko, as well as Charles Bediako and the recently signed David Duke Jr., shouldn't worry about being traded ahead of the February 12th deadline.
