The San Antonio Spurs drafting Victor Wembanyama completely flips their future and trajectory. The 7’3 big man is an all-time great prospect with the potential to be an inner-circle Hall of Famer. Everything revolves around Wemby, and he needs shooters to space the floor.

The Spurs finished 26th in 3-point percentage and 22nd in threes made last season. Wembanyama will draw the defense, but that won’t help if San Antonio cannot knock down the open looks. Reggie Bullock is a career 38.4 percent 3-point shooter, but there is zero guarantee he will stick in the Alamo. The Spurs have some plus shooters, but not enough to climb out of the bottom ten.

The Spurs decided to slow play things around Wemby. They used their cap space to acquire more draft capital as the third team in trades. It won’t last. San Antonio must maximize the teenager’s development, which means getting some marksmen around him.

5. Dorian Finney-Smith

Finney-Smith is a career 35.7 percent 3-point shooter, which would rank below average in two of the last three years, but that does not tell the story. The 6’7 wing went undrafted after struggling to hit jumpers in college. Doe-Doe immediately jumped into the Mavericks rotation as a rookie and worked his way into a plus shooter.

Over the last four years combined, he has hit 37.7 percent from 3-point range and that includes some poor shooting after being traded to the Nets at last season’s deadline. The 3-and-D forward can guard multiple positions and sink open shots. Brooklyn has a logjam on the wing and could look to move Dorian Finney-Smith before the trade deadline.

The 30-year-old is under contract for two more years plus a player option in 2025-26 and could be a key rotation piece as Victor Wembanyama blossoms into a superstar.
