3. Jeremy Sochan

The Spurs wanted Jeremy Sochan to be their point guard to open the 2023-24 season. The experiment failed miserably, but the 21-year-old’s unique skill set made him a top-ten selection in 2022. San Antonio wants to lean into his versatility and would love to see his playmaking blossom further.

Chris Paul could be a fantastic addition for just that. He became elite by manipulating defenders and creating open shots for teammates. Sochan’s playmaking keeps improving, but having a mentor like CP3 could allow it to skyrocket. Devin Booker’s ball-handling and distributing took a massive leap with Paul in Phoenix. Could Sochan similarly benefit?

The 21-year-old will continue improving. He is entering his third NBA season, which is often a breakout year for top prospects. Having Chris Paul create open will give his offensive game a boost. The Spurs want his jumper to take another step forward. Getting a few more wide-open attempts should help matters.

The young talent on the Spurs roster will benefit most from having Chris Paul. Most won’t think about Jeremy Sochan, but him taking a step forward with his playmaking and shooting is crucial to keeping him a key piece next to Victor Wembanyama for years to come.
