1. Spurs reacquire former All-Star point guard

Murray was an All-Star and elite point guard in San Antonio before being traded to the Hawks. The Spurs got a massive haul and were starting a rebuild. Atlanta dreamed of Murray and Trae Young forming a star backcourt and leading the Hawks to playoff success. It hasn’t happened, and Murray is on the trade block.

Hawks reportedly want two first-round draft picks for Murray, which is less than the Spurs got for him in 2022. San Antonio has a bevy of selections and could deal two expiring contracts plus draft capital to land him.

Murray to SA

Murray needs to be the point guard to showcase his talent. He would be the lead ball-handler in San Antonio and could help Victor Wembanyama become a superstar. The 6’5 guard would be happy coming back to the Spurs. It could be beneficial for both sides and put San Antonio back into contention.

The San Antonio Spurs can make any move before the Feb. 8 trade deadline. Do they think it is best to stand pat or upgrade their roster? They have enough draft capital to acquire any player, but what gets them back into title contention? Stay tuned to find out how aggressive they are and what the front office believes is best to maximize Wemby.
