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.
