2. Josh Primo

Josh Primo has come a long way from last summer when the Spurs shocked everyone by drafting him 12th overall. Playing the 2021-22 season as the youngest player in the league, Primo proved to be more NBA-ready than most had anticipated and even showed flashes of greatness when the opportunity arose.

In just over 19 minutes per game, Josh averaged 5.8 points and 1.8 assists for San Antonio. As the year went on, he saw more playing time and was put in more pressure situations. His continued growth has been a constant talking point among Spurs fans, as it seems his physical frame may not be done filling out at just 19 years old.

While he spent a large chunk of his season in Austin, there was noticeable development in Primo's game from the beginning of the year to the end. As he got more comfortable handling the ball and running offense, "point Primo" even became a fun nickname among the fanbase.

He may not be the top option for starting point guard as of now, but the Silver and Black faithful will certainly be excited to see the rock in his hands this year.
