Derrick White - Regain his consistency

If you want to know how impactful Derrick White is, look no closer than his season splits. In wins, he averages 17.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 4.9 assists while in losses he's averaging just 12.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 5.2 assists on 39% shooting.

It goes without saying that White will need to be more consistent for the Spurs to be competitive, but it's not always clear which version of White will show up from night to night. As a result, consistency should be White's goal in 2022.

Doug McDermott - Stay healthy

Doug McDermott has managed to live up to expectations thus far, which is definitely a good thing considering he was the Spurs' big free agent signing this past summer. Moreover, he was brought in to provide shooting, and he's done just that, as shown by him hitting at an impressive 41.1% mark.

Unfortunately, McDermott has already missed eight games, and given that the Spurs are one of the worst 3-point shooting teams, they can't afford to lose him. Accordingly, McDermott staying healthy should be a top priority in 2022.

Keldon Johnson - Shoot more threes

After an ice-cold start to the season shooting the ball from three, Keldon Johnson's shot has more than thawed. He's now shooting a red-hot 47.2% on threes on 3.3 attempts per game and should look to capitalize on his hot touch by bombing away in the New Year.

After all, were Johnson to increase his average number of 3-point attempts by at least two per game, it would result in a nice scoring boost over the second half of the season.
