1. Sign Fred VanVleet

VanVleet is one of the best free-agent point guards on the market this summer. He averaged 19.3 points, 7.2 assists, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.8 steals in 36.7 minutes per game last season for the Raptors. If Toronto decides to rebuild, FVV could be looking for a new home this offseason, and he won’t have to search far for suitors.

The Spurs would love to add a star point guard, but VanVleet may have to apologize to coach Pop first. The 29-year-old guard helped the Raptors win the title in 2019, but he may have cursed out Popovich at the victory parade. Spurs fans certainly have not forgotten.

Would the All-Star guard be interested in San Antonio? They have money to offer and a need at point guard. FVV could lead the new-look Spurs under Victor Wembanyama and help them quickly get back to the playoffs. The 29-year-old is in his prime and eager to contend for a championship.

The San Antonio Spurs should not be in a position to land one of the best free agents on the market, but Wembanyama changes things. The hype is real, and he could quickly take the NBA by storm. That alone could interest Fred VanVleet and others.

Will the Spurs pull off a wild move this summer? Expect them to add veterans and talent as they look to build a competitive roster around Victor Wembanyama. Can they do it? Stay tuned to find out.
