38th pick: David Roddy, Max Christie, Kris Murray

There should be a few decent options left when San Antonio selects 38th overall. One of them is David Roddy, who could be worth a flyer. Roddy is a physical, 6'6 shooting guard who can score in several ways, including posting up a surprising amount and using his big frame to bully his man down low for easy baskets.

Roddy is also a very good shooter, hitting 43.1% of his threes, and a capable ballhandler who's adept at using screens, hesitation dribbles, and a quick first step to get into the paint and finish with a big dunk. He's even a solid passer and a great rebounder, all of which could make him a solid pick for the Spurs.

Max Christie was underwhelming in his only season at Michigan State and shot the ball poorly despite being known as a shooter. If his shot comes back around, Christie could carve out a role in the NBA, similar to that of former Spur and Michigan State alum Bryn Forbes. He's much taller, however, and is barely 19-years-old, suggesting that he has plenty of room to grow and could do so in the NBA G League if signed to a two-way contract.

Kris Murray is the older identical twin brother of Keegan Murray, and, while not as talented, could be a good second-round prospect. Similar to his brother, Murray is 6'8, with a 7'0 wingspan and also projects to be a stretch four in the NBA. Moreover, he shot the ball well from three this past college season, hitting 38% of his 3.2 attempts per game.

Murray also showed that he could put the ball on the floor and drive, allowing him to attack closeouts. He's also a versatile defender and should be able to hold his own against other fours while also being able to guard out on the perimeter. That said, Murray probably won't be the best player available at 38, but the second round is more about finding players who have a chance to stick in the NBA, and he could.

Ultimately, while the Spurs may not keep all of their picks in the 2022 NBA Draft, there appears to be plenty of talent available at each selection. That's great for San Antonio, who's already constructed a young and talented team -- and they're about to add to it.
