In the 2020-'21 season, the main issue plaguing the San Antonio Spurs offense was the team's total unwillingness to shoot from deep. The Spurs took the fewest three-point shots last season out of all NBA teams. The recent failures to make the NBA playoffs can be attributed--at least partially--to poor shooting, and solving that issue will be incredibly important for immediate success. 

Adding John Collins to the roster should be the Spurs’ biggest priority this offseason, but adding role players that are comfortable with shooting from behind the arc needs to be a close second. The Spurs have money to spend, so they can make a strong offer to just about anyone. 

Ranging from seasoned veterans to players still in their first few seasons, from wings to guards, the Spurs have plenty of options. Finding a player that fits well with the Spurs should not be too difficult considering the number of skills the team will be in short supply of.

In addition to shooting, each free agent should bring something else to the table. Defense, veteran leadership, and rebounding are all other things the team will probably find themselves needing. A one-dimensional player may help knock down shots, but with plenty of money to spend, the Spurs should pursue someone who is not a liability in other aspects of the game.

With that in mind, the Spurs should strongly consider adding these shooters to the team this coming season.
