6. Trade for Spencer Dinwiddie and Dorian Finney-Smith

The Spurs need a starting point guard, and the franchise is eager to improve their roster.

The Brooklyn Nets are facing an uncertain future. They went all-in by acquiring Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, but their “Big 3” never panned out. Harden last just one year before being traded to Philadelphia, and the other two are now out. The Nets do not have their picks, but they could look to retool around Mikal Bridges.

The Nets have more wings than minutes to hand out, so someone will likely be on the move this summer. Finney-Smith is a strong 3-and-D wing that does not need the ball and has the size to guard the elite wings in the Western Conference. He helped the Mavericks reach the conference finals in 2022 and is known as a fantastic locker-room presence.

Dinwiddie was also part of the Mavs squad in 2022 and would be a veteran playmaker to lead the Spurs. He fills a need and could be available for the right price. If San Antonio offers two first-round picks, the Nets would have to strongly consider their offer.

This is a wild move for a team that won just 22 games last season, but the addition of Victor Wembanyama could quickly change the Spurs' trajectory.
