Showed promise but needs time to develop

The Spurs had three first-round draft picks in 2022. All showed flashes as rookies, but two are still fighting for a nightly place in the rotation. San Antonio could get draft capital in return for both, but the smart play is to let them develop and continue improving.

9. Blake Wesley

Wesley was the 25th pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, but he did not crack the Spurs rotation until late January. There were flashes of his playmaking and rebounding, and Wesley scored over 20 points per game in the G League over an 11-game stint, but the teenager had some struggles.

Can he break out in year two and crack the rotation? Wesley struggled to score efficiently and take care of the ball in summer league. The 20-year-old needs time to develop, but he has plenty of potential that would make him an intriguing target for a rebuilding team.

8. Malachi Branham

Branham was taken five picks ahead of Wesley in the 2022 draft, and the 6’5 wing cracked the Spurs rotation in November. Over his final 29 games, Branham averaged 14.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 28.3 minutes per contest. The 20-year-old averaged 21.0 points per game during summer league, and he looks ready to leap in year two.

The San Antonio Spurs won't trade Malachi Branham or Blake Wesley unless a blockbuster falls into their lap because of their potential.
