1. Blake Wesley
The 25th overall pick in the 2022 draft struggled to get on the floor as a rookie. He averaged 5.0 points, 2.7 assists, and 2.2 rebounds in 18.1 minutes per game, but shot just 32.1 percent from the field and 59.1 percent on his free throws.
It was a slow start for the 20-year-old in the NBA. Wesley averaged over 20 points and two steals per game in the G League in 11 regular season contests, but the Spurs roster crunch on the wing likely keeps him out of the rotation in year two.
The 20-year-old has immense potential, but may have to go to a different team to realize it. Devin Vassell and Keldon Johnson are locked in long-term. Jeremy Sochan and Malaki Branham are two young players on rookie deals who are also ahead of Blake Wesley. The Spurs just drafted Sidy Cissoko in the second round, and he will be fighting for wing minutes over the next three years.
The San Antonio Spurs are not a finished product. This is just year one with Victor Wembanyama. The franchise will continue upgrading and building its roster around the French prodigy. Gregg Popovich and the Spurs will have some new faces at their disposal as they fight for a playoff spot in 2025, so stay tuned to find out who.
