San Antonio Spurs: Potential trades to shake things up

Air Alamo writer Cal Durrett believes the Spurs would be best-served by doing some wheeling and dealing to make the most of this draft class. From trading up for an even better talent to acquiring another later pick to find a hidden gem, he came up with some ways the Spurs can buck the trend and actually make moves.

On June 6th, Cal proposed three ways San Antonio can move up in the draft for a top-level talent. Options ranged from packaging Lonnie Walker to taking on some big contracts for assets.

He followed that up with a recent piece on July 17th, proposing ways the Silver and Black can get more than one pick in the first round. Options included trading with the Golden State Warriors, who have the 7th and 14th picks on Thursday.

Roberto Araiza also gave his thoughts on whether the Spurs should be looking to trade in general on draft day in this post from June 30th.

While it seems like the Spurs are allergic to making trades as a franchise, everything comes to an end eventually. One thing I know for sure, fans are thirsty for a trade, but that also doesn't mean the front office should be hasty.

To wrap up our comprehensive guide to the Spurs and the upcoming draft, let's have a look at various lists of the best players in the class by category.
