The San Antonio Spurs have a ton of issues to address this offseason, one of the biggest being obtaining an athletic big man to insert into the starting lineup. They'll have plenty of money and opportunity to do so via the draft, trades, and free agency, but it may take some spending to get a quality guy.
One name that's been linked to the Spurs frequently this year has been Atlanta Hawks power forward John Collins. We've previously broken down in detail the pros and cons of obtaining the 6-9 big man out of Wake Forest, but the question remains whether San Antonio will be able to pull off such an acquisition in the first place.
The Spurs have been strapped for cash after some unfortunate contracts in recent years, but all of that is now in the rearview heading into the 2021-22 season. With six free agents to handle and plenty of cap space, the summer is wide open for San Antonio's front office to earn their keep.
There's a lot of debate about just how much John Collins is worth heading into his fifth season, especially for Spurs fans still recovering from the frightening contracts of guys like Pau Gasol and DeMarre Carroll.
Let's take a look at Collins' current contract and how that could affect his offers next season.
