The Spurs have reached the pinnacle of the offseason. After securing Victor Wembanyama with the first overall pick of the 2023 NBA Draft, San Antonio must continue filling out the roster around their generational cornerstone. With free agency kicking off at 5 PM CT on Friday, the front office is mere hours away from re-signing familiar faces and negotiating with marquee names on the open market.

With so many players returning, an established pecking order, and a day-one starter in Wembanyama, predicting San Antonio's depth chart is a mostly straightforward task. Summer League could propel a youngster into regular rotation minutes and there are questions about who should be relegated to the second unit, but here is how things are shaping up for the Spurs before they make any further moves.

Spurs depth chart heading into free agency

PG: Tre Jones, Devonte’ Graham, Blake Wesley

SG: Devin Vassell, Malaki Branham, Sir’Jabari Rice

SF: Keldon Johnson, Doug McDermott, Julian Champagnie, Sidy Cissoko

PF: Victor Wembanyama, Jeremy Sochan, Dominick Barlow

C: Zach Collins, Charles Bassey, Khem Birch

San Antonio extended qualifying offers to Jones, Champagnie, and Barlow on Thursday, making them restricted free agents and ensuring they can match any contract those players sign with other teams. The Spurs opted not to do the same with Gorgui Dieng, Romeo Langford, Sandro Mamukelashvili, and Keita Bates-Diop, cementing their status as unresticted free agents.

Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reported the Spurs are expected to use their two-way contracts on Sidy Cissoko, Sir'Jabari Rice, and Barlow. That would leave two standard contracts for San Antonio to round out their final two roster spots. The team will have roughly $30 million in cap space and a $7.7 million room exception at their disposal when free agency begins.

The Silver and Black could continue shuffling their roster with trades to move expensive veterans like Birch or Graham, who probably don't figure into their long-term plans. And with rumors swirling about the team having interest in signing experienced frontcourt bodies to take pressure off Wembanyama, Spurs fans should keep a close eye on Grant Williams, Brook Lopez, and Jakob Poeltl.
