2. Stephon Castle

The rookie made it clear he wants to be a point guard. San Antonio is searching for their long-term answer next to Victor Wembanyama and has plenty of on-ball reps to give to Castle. They took him fourth overall, which should say plenty about the franchise’s belief in his talent.

There is no better mentor still playing in the NBA than Chris Paul. Castle was an elite perimeter defender in the NCAA but needs to improve his playmaking and ball-handling to be a point guard in San Antonio. CP3 should ease that transition.

Paul had an in-depth talk with head coach Gregg Popovich before joining the Spurs. Fans can bet that mentoring Stephon Castle and maximizing the Spurs' soon-to-be superstar were key discussion points. Castle is eager to improve and wants to be elite. He has all the tools at his disposal now.

The 19-year-old must improve his 3-point shooting too. Chris Paul is a career 36.9 percent 3-point shooter and master in the mid-range at just six feet tall. He knows a lot about scoring in the NBA and could help Castle blossom into an elite all-around weapon.

The San Antonio Spurs are eager to have CP3 working with Castle, but the biggest benefit will come in helping Wemby transform into a superstar.
