4. Start looking at who might be expendable
The Spurs are set up to have a big offseason armed with a total of four picks (including 3 first-rounders) and potentially $30+ million in cap space. With so many assets at their disposal, there’s likely going to be a fair amount of roster turnover. In fact, there already has been, considering that four players who started this season in Silver and Black are now on other teams.
San Antonio could continue to clean house with several players on non-guaranteed contracts, team options, or potentially hitting restricted free agency. These players include Jones, Landale, Cacok, Wieskamp, Bates-Diop, Walker, Romeo Langford, and Collins.
Collins, Jones, Wieskamp, and Bates-Diop appear likely to return while Walker, Landale, Cacok, and Langford might not. As a result, the Spurs should use the rest of the season to figure out who stays and who goes.
Ultimately, with Popovich on the brink of history, San Antonio might be best suited redirecting their energy toward other goals once he reaches the pinnacle.
