Players from overseas have historically blossomed in SA. Perhaps Bogdan can be the next man up in a famed line of international ballers to play for the Silver & Black. Obviously, draft picks are in the fold, and with this one, we add only one first-rounder. Bogdanovic is set to make $18 million this season and the next, but the Spurs are unlikely to splash in free agency this season, so they could cut ties next summer.
With a full-blown rebuild taking place in San Antonio, the Spurs must capitalize on Jakob Poeltl and the reality that he has turned into one of the most valuable trade assets in the NBA, and these trade scenarios accomplish that very thing with the pros outweighing the cons for both ballclubs.
The Atlanta Hawks need a big man to compliment their juggernaut guards for a playoff run unlike any other before. San Antonio is rebuilding and wants those draft picks in Atlanta’s back pocket.
It would be wise and equally beneficial for the Hawks to use them.
