San Antonio Spurs GM Brian Wright did his best Sam Presti impression on Thursday and it led to an influx of future picks to use.

While it came at a heavy cost in the form of Derrick White, it's safe to say the Spurs definitively chose a course of action on trade deadline day that should lead to a huge rebuilding summer. Obtaining multiple picks in addition to the ones they already received by dealing Bryn Forbes and Juancho Hernangomez, San Antonio is suddenly primed to be a big player in the 2022 NBA Draft and beyond.

With the February 10th trades completed, here's where the Spurs stand with their draft picks from that date.

2022

  • Own 1st round pick: Tankathon has up-to-date odds on where this pick will fall. The worse record the Spurs finish with, the higher odds of a high draft pick.
  • 1st round pick from Toronto: Top-14 protected in 2022 and top-13 protected in 2023. If the Raptors don't convey the pick by 2023, this will turn into two 2nd round picks from Toronto to San Antonio. Essentially, the Spurs should be rooting for Toronto to make the playoffs this season or next, because the pick will then convey as a 1st round pick.
  • 1st round pick from Boston: Top-4 protected in 2022. The chance of this pick not conveying this season is very slim, as the Celtics would have to freefall to near the bottom of the standings enough to get one of the top four picks.
  • 2nd round pick from Los Angeles Lakers via Chicago: This pick was included in the deal sending DeMar DeRozan to the Bulls and will likely land in the 40s.

2023

  • Own 1st round pick
  • 1st round pick from Toronto - conveys if not conveyed in 2022, top-14 protected
  • Own 2nd round pick: Only kept if pick lands within 31-55 range. Conveys to Indiana if lands from 56-60.

2024

  • Own 1st round pick
  • Own 2nd round pick

2025

  • Own 1st round pick
  • 1st round pick from Chicago - conveys if it lands between 11-30 AND if Chicago's 1st round pick to Orlando in 2023 was conveyed -- OR it conveys if Chicago has not conveyed its 1st round pick to Orlando by 2024. Protection shifts to top-8 protected in the second and third drafts. If none of these convey, Chicago will then convey its 2028 2nd round pick to the Spurs.
  • Own 2nd round pick
  • 2nd round pick from Chicago

2026

  • Own 1st round pick
  • 1st round pick from Chicago - conveys if not already settled AND the pick falls between 9-30 AND Chicago conveyed its 1st round pick to Orlando in 2023 -- OR if Chicago has not conveyed its 1st round pick to Orlando by 2024 -- OR if it lands between 11-30 AND Chicago conveyed its 1st round pick to Orlando in 2024.
  • 2nd round pick - more favorable of its own pick and less favorable of Indiana and Miami pick.

2027

  • Own 1st round pick
  • 1st round pick from Chicago - conveys if not already settled AND the pick falls between 9-30.
  • Own 2nd round pick
  • 2nd round pick - least favorable of 2nd round pick between Oklahoma City, Houston, Indiana, and Miami

2028

  • Own 1st round pick
  • 1st round pick from Chicago - conveys if not already settled AND the pick falls between 9-30 AND Chicago had conveyed its 1st round pick to Orlando in 2024.
  • 1st round pick from Boston - conveys if Boston doesn't land the number one pick
  • Own 2nd round pick
  • 2nd round pick from Chicago - conveys if Chicago hasn't conveyed 1st round pick to San Antonio by 2027 or 2028.
  • 2nd round pick from Denver - conveys if the pick lands between 34-60. Pick stays with Denver if pick lands between 31-33 and does not carry over.

The San Antonio Spurs have seemingly unlimited potential when it comes to how they're going to use their newfound assets. They are projected to be one of the more well-off teams financially this offseason and can use their draft picks themselves or package them to move up further in future drafts.
