3. Bobby Portis, Milwaukee Bucks

The Spurs could've used Bobby Portis this season, but the NBA champion decided to run it back with the Bucks on a one-year, $4.5 million dollar contract. They would have to offer him significantly more money than that to get him to the Alamo City, but he’s proven he could be worth it. 

Portis was a scrappy do-all bench player for the Bucks last season, scoring from deep, grabbing rebounds, and playing really solid defense down the stretch. The Spurs would have to overpay, but the added spacing, scoring, and overall rebounding would be a boost. 

Approaching 27 years old, Portis is a champion who wants to win. He came into the league at around the same time Nikola Mirotic left the league, probably because Portis broke his jaw in a scuffle when they were both on the Bulls. Portis wanted to be a part of a winner, and despite nearly killing his teammate, the Bulls picked Bobby

He’s gone on to be one of the best role players in the NBA and has been a good leader for one of the best teams in the league. If he wants to help a young team rebuild, the Spurs would be a great fit for him. He could play alongside a traditional center and score several points from corner threes, and he has gotten used to playing with some of the league’s best defenders in Milwaukee.

San Antonio sounds like a good situation, and if he wanted to make closer to $7 million a year, I think the Spurs would welcome him with open arms.
