1. 3rd Team in a trade

The Spurs helped workout two sign-and-trades already this offseason. They got Max Strus to the Cavaliers and Grant Williams to the Mavericks by taking on the unwanted role players in those deals to make the salary-matching work. Reggie Bullock, Cedi Osman, and Lamar Stevens could all play for San Antonio and have an impact this season. Consider it wise business from the Spurs, and they may look to flip those players at the deadline for additional assets.

Can the Spurs get in on another trade? There are still two massive dominos to fall in Damian Lillard and James Harden. San Antonio may be a useful third team in making those moves work. The Spurs have a handful of mid-sized contracts and some extra breathing room to make the math equal out.

The San Antonio Spurs will continue to be opportunistic here. Dallas did not want to part with Reggie Bullock, but the Spurs made that the price of acquiring Grant Williams. Expect them to play a similar role if they get involved in another deal this offseason.

How will Gregg Popovich and company use their remaining cap space? No free agent signing is coming. The Spurs will continue to be creative as they look to finalize their roster in year one with Victor Wembanyama, so stay tuned for all the latest.
