4) Malcolm Brogdon

With the Spurs in the market for a starting point guard, they could look at Portland Trail Blazers guard Malcolm Brogdon, who will probably be moved ahead of the deadline. With several teams pursuing Murray, Brogdon has gone under the radar as a potential trade candidate, meaning that he could be a cheaper alternative for the Spurs.

Despite playing on a poor Blazers team, he has still managed to put up impressive numbers in fewer than 27 minutes per game, including averaging nearly 15 points, more than 5 assists, and shooting 41.3% on more than five threes.

With two seasons remaining on his contract after this season, the Spurs would get a terrific short-term starter. Not only that, but it would allow them to dramatically improve at their weakest position while also providing space to draft the point guard of the future, giving them a couple of seasons to develop. As far as the Blazers asking price, they may seek two firsts for Brogdon, but Doug McDermott, Cedi Osman, and the Bulls 2025 first-round pick is a competitive enough offer.
