San Antonio Spurs draft scenario 3: Evan Mobley & Vrenz Bleijenbergh

Last but not least, let's assume that in this scenario that the Spurs find themselves lucky in the lottery and/or are able to move up the board via trade. For now, let's say that the Spurs have a pick in the two to four range in the first round, along with their 41st overall pick in the second round.

With their first-round pick, the Spurs select one of the most impactful players in all of college basketball in Evan Mobley. Using his elite fluidity for a seven-footer, his ludicrous 7'4" wingspan, and his shot-blocking instincts, he was able to record 2.9 blocks per game over the course of his season with USC.

He led the entire NCAA in win shares and box plus-minus and is the most fundamentally sound big man in the entire draft. To top things off, Mobley is more than likely the best passing big man coming into the draft as well. If he manages to continue putting on weight and improve his shot, he very well could be a superstar for the Spurs.

Vrenz Bleijenbergh played with the Antwerp Giants in the EuroMillions Basketball League in Belgium, where he led his team to the playoff semifinals. Standing at 6'10" and weighing 209 pounds, while he has the length of a forward, Bleijenbergh possesses the shooting ability of a wing and the passing ability of a guard.

He has an incredibly unique set of skills for his size, and given that the Spurs recently decided to part ways with Quinndary Weatherspoon, the possibility remains that they could decide to pick a point forward in the draft like Bleijenbergh. If he could continue to put on weight and improve on his rebounding, he could make for a very interesting fit with the Spurs.

By adding both Mobley and Bleijenbergh, the Spurs would be adding a ton of length to their roster while also adding rebounding and facilitating upside. Bleijenbergh already appears to be very comfortable with his jump shot, and Mobley has the potential to significantly improve.
