The San Antonio Spurs face a crucial offseason. Victor Wembanyama lived up to the hype and proved he is one of the league’s best already, but his team won just 22 games and was nowhere near the playoffs. It was not all bad, but San Antonio must put more talent around him. It starts with the 2024 NBA Draft.

The Spurs could have two picks in the top seven. They sit fifth in the pre-lottery order but have a 10.5 percent of selecting first overall for the second straight year. San Antonio also has a 54.1 percent chance of landing the Raptors selection, which is top six protected from the Jakob Poeltl trade. They are guaranteed to have three selections and the lottery will determine the fate of a fourth.

What if the Spurs win the lottery and everything breaks right? Who does San Antonio select in a draft class filled with uncertainty? Here is what general manager Brian Wright and the Spurs do if they get all of their highest possible picks in the 2024 draft.

1. San Antonio Spurs select Nikola Topic

San Antonio desperately needs a point guard. They attempted the Jeremy Sochan experiment, but it fell flat. The Spurs were considerably better when they started Tre Jones, but the franchise does not see him as the long-term answer. Adding a trusted lead ball-handler and playmaker should be atop their offseason priorities.

Topic is the best point guard in this draft class. He played so well for KK Mega Bemax early in the season that KK Crvena Zvezda recalled his loan and gave him the chance to suit up in the EuroLeague. Topic suffered a knee injury after just three games with the club and missed multiple months before returning on April 22.

The 6’6 guard is arguably the best passer and playmaker in this class. He will need time to develop, but the 18-year-old could be a starter and impactful rotation piece for the next decade-plus in the NBA. There is no clarity about who goes number one. The Spurs should select the prospect they believe in. Nikola Topic fills a need and has the upside to be the best player in this class.

San Antonio needs more luck if they are going to pick at seven. It will take someone jumping the Raptors for the selection to convey to the Spurs. Here is a look at the other 57 picks in this mock with a focus on who San Antonio takes.
