The San Antonio Spurs' offseason is in full swing, and preparations are no doubt already being made for weeks down the line. The 2024 NBA Draft is less than a month away, with the free agency period beginning soon after. The Spurs know that time is of the essence when it comes to building a good team around Victor Wembanyama.

As such, the front office is of course doing its due diligence on draft prospects that would work around their franchise player, as well as carefully analyzing the free agent market to determine the best fits to pursue. One significant skill San Antonio will want to add more of to its roster is three-point shooting.

Last season, the Spurs ranked 28th in the association with a 34.7% mark from outside as a team. Adding good shooters will be of vital importance to helping this team take a step up. We looked at five strong three-point shooters that are set to hit free agency this summer, and ranked them by their career percentages from behind the arc.

5. Malik Monk - 35.5%

First up is the dead-eye shooter from the Sacramento Kings, Malik Monk. Coming in with just a 35.5% mark from three-point territory, Monk is the lowest on our list but still a valuable shooter. Beginning his career in Charlotte, Malik has been a bit of a late bloomer during his time in the NBA.

After the Hornets declined to extend him a qualifying offer in 2021, Monk signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he had what was essentially a career-saving season. After putting up 13.8 points per game on a career-high 47% from the field, he was due for a payday the Lakers could not afford.

As a result, he inked a multi-year deal with the Kings, where he has since had the two best seasons of his career. Finishing top five in Sixth Man of the Year voting the last two years, Monk has developed into one of the best reserve guards in the association. He could be pried from Sacramento for the right price.
