Duncan Robinson - SF/SG, Miami Heat

Nobody has a Spursier name than Duncan Robinson and hardly anyone can shoot like him either. The undrafted 26-year-old has made a name for himself as a knockdown flamethrower for the Miami Heat, scorching the nets at a 42.7 percent rate over the last two seasons.

While I covered him more in detail in my recent post about sharpshooters to monitor, the bottom line is the Spurs need shooters in a bad way. Duncan is about as pure a shooter as there is in the league.

While Miami certainly will want to retain their starting small forward, they have a plethora of free agents to deal with this summer. The Spurs could certainly outbid them if they wanted to.

Jeff Green - F/C, Brooklyn Nets

At age 34, Jeff Green would be the oldest player on the roster if he found his way to San Antonio. That is unless Rudy Gay stays, who's older than Green by 11 days. For that reason alone, Spurs fans might be inclined to pass, but there's something important to note. If DeMar DeRozan, Patty Mills, and Rudy Gay all walk, that's an awful lot of collective veteran presence out the door.

By no means should the Spurs break the bank for someone like Jeff Green, but there's something to be said for bringing on a guy with 12 years under his belt to help mentor a bunch of 20-somethings. Green is also coming off a career-best 41.2 percent perimeter shooting rate this season with the Nets, who will still need money to retain guys like Bruce Brown and Blake Griffin.

The Spurs could do worse than getting Green on a bargain bin deal. Given he's likely chasing a championship at this stage of his career, however -- that's unlikely.

Evan Fournier - SG/SF, Boston Celtics

Unless you count Tacko Fall, Evan Fournier is the only Boston Celtic of note hitting free agency this summer. By default, he's probably the only one worth keeping an eye on. That said, I don't really think the Spurs should bother.

Next. Why the Spurs should rescue Derrick Jones Jr.. dark

At age 28, Fournier had seven entries on the injury report in the year 2021 alone that ranged for various amounts of time. Like most others on this list, he would bring a deadly 3-point shot to the Spurs. Beyond that, the Spurs have enough promising young talent at his position and height that can do what he does.
