4. Bismack Biyombo

Playing such a small role for the team this past season, added with the continued development of Jock Landale, it's safe to say that Bismack Biyombo probably won't be back on the Phoenix Suns next year. That could open the door for a team like the San Antonio Spurs to come in and scoop him up on the free-agent market.

Biyombo may not be in the "prime" of his career anymore but he's still a player that can rebound and block shots at a pretty consistent level. In just 14 minutes per game this past season, he still managed to average four rebounds and more than one block per game. And perhaps he could even help Victor Wembanyama on the defensive end of the floor, making the transition from the overseas game to NBA competition.

For as generational of a prospect as Wemby is, there has to be some level of a learning curve that he'll have to go through. Biyombo could help with that process, while also being a veteran big that the Spurs could also turn to off the bench.

And you'd have to imagine that the Spurs could probably sign Biyombo to a fairly team-friendly deal too.
