It's safe to say the San Antonio Spurs have finally chosen a solid direction this offseason. After being over-reliant on their veterans last season, GM Brian Wright and the front office have said goodbye to three of them.
First, Rudy Gay agreed to a 2-year deal with the Utah Jazz. Then, Patty Mills agreed to a 2-year deal of his own with the Brooklyn Nets. Both signings give the veterans a shot at an NBA title in the near future.
Meanwhile, the latest development saw DeMar DeRozan heading east to the Chicago Bulls. The sign-and-trade deal netted the Spurs Thaddeus Young, Al-Farouq Aminu, a future first-round pick, a 2022 second-round pick, and the Bulls' 2025 second-round pick.
There will be plenty to dissect over the next few days, and chances are high San Antonio isn't quite done making moves yet. For now, though, it looks like the Spurs will be fully embracing their young core of Dejounte Murray, Keldon Johnson, Lonnie Walker, Derrick White, and Devin Vassell. Gone are the times when the Spurs just give the ball to DeMar or Rudy and watch them go to work late.
With the keys now firmly in the hands of the young guns, here's a Tuesday afternoon look at where the roster sits now, although it likely will change again soon. Note: The depth chart is projected but will likely change.

The Spurs started off free agency with a bang, and don't be surprised to see this updated with more movement very soon.
