The San Antonio Spurs made a bold move to open free agency by agreeing to a one-year deal with Chris Paul. Adrian Wojnarowski reported the future Hall of Famer will make $11 million as he gives the Spurs the veteran point guard they have been searching for to play off Victor Wembanyama.

CP3 is one of the best playmakers of this generation. He has been known to maximize his teammates and speed up their development. Paul has played for six different franchises and has made an impact in every situation. The 39-year-old is well past his prime but will be focused on helping the Spurs take the next step.

Every player will benefit from having CP3 in the Alamo, but these young talents have the most to gain from his knowledge, playmaking, and leadership.

4. Tre Jones

The Spurs were significantly better with Jones on the floor last season, but he is not the franchise’s long-term starter. The 6’1 guard is a strong playmaker and one of the best reserve options in the league. His defense and lack of shooting makes it difficult to play him 30-plus minutes per night, but there is still plenty to like.

The 25-year-old can learn plenty from one of the best of all time. Paul is coming in to mentor their young talent. The veteran has plenty of tips and tricks. Expect Jones to take full advantage and get several new weapons from CP3.

Chris Paul is nearing the end of his career. The addition for San Antonio is as much about leadership and mentoring as it is on-court play. Jones will be one of several who benefit from the future Hall of Famer.
