4. Bruce Brown Jr.

The Pacers pulled off a bold move in the summer of 2023 when they signed Brown to a two-year $45 million contract. The 6’4 guard was fresh off helping the Nuggets win the championship, but it was shocking to see him get such a hefty contract. Indiana traded him to Toronto as part of the Pascal Siakam deal, and the Raptors have a $23 million team option for the 2024-25 campaign.

Toronto prioritized adding talent over draft picks when trading Siakam and OG Anunoby. The Raptors want to quickly return to contention, but do they pay Brown such a hefty salary to fill a 25-minute per-game role?

If he becomes available, every contender will be interested in Bruce Brown. The 6’4 guard is a strong defender with playmaking ability and versatility. Brown will set screens, sink open jumpers, or run the offense. He does whatever his team needs to win.

The 27-year-old would be a fantastic fit next to Victor Wembanyama in San Antonio. They could run inverted pick and rolls and create havoc defensively. The Spurs would need him to become a free agent and be willing to take a pay cut. They are not significantly overpaying for Brown, but they could sign him if everything comes together.
