4. Quentin Grimes

Grimes is rumored to be available and his minutes are down this season. The Knicks have depth and plan to continue improving their roster. Grimes averaged 11.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 29.9 minutes per game in his second NBA season, but he is only getting 20.2 minutes each night this year. A fresh start may be the best thing for both sides.

Grimes is a career 37.9 percent 3-point shooter who is known for playing stout defense. The 6’5 wing is not a primary ball-handler, but the 23-year-old has not reached his ceiling. He could be a strong 3-and-D wing with some shot-creation ability for the next decade-plus.

Several teams will be interested if Grimes is truly available. The Spurs need strong perimeter defenders who can sink open shots and create plays around Victor Wembanyama. Grimes would be a strong fit at the two but would need to play next to a pure point guard.

The San Antonio Spurs cannot just acquire the 6’5 wing. He does not solve their biggest issues, but Quentin Grimes could become a key rotation piece in the Alamo. The Spurs need shooters and offense punch. Grimes would provide both if given consistent run, but San Antonio may try to add a bigger name to their roster.
