Spurs: 5 Veteran free agent big men targets to help mentor Victor Wembanyama
2. Georges Niang
With the amount of uncertainty that revolves around the Philadelphia 76ers heading into the offseason, there's no guarantee that Georges Niang will be back. There's a good chance he could also be looking for a change of scenery considering how up-and-down his tenure with the Sixers has been over the last two seasons.
Niang has been somewhat of a polarizing player in Philadelphia but if there's one thing he'll bring to any team it's consistent 3-point shooting. He's averaged at least 40 percent shooting from 3-point range in each of the last five seasons of his career. Considering the Spurs were one of the worst 3-point shooting teams in the league last season, he should be able to help on that front.
He'd also add a veteran presence to their frontcourt as he's played more the power forward position or small-ball power forward position recently. At this point in his career, Niang is not just a player that a team brings in for the sake of professionalism. He's a player that will bring a veteran aspect but also one that could seemingly play a tangible role as well.
Niang could also benefit from playing and learning under Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. A Niang-to-Spurs move could be a win-win for both sides.
