Small forwards: Keldon Johnson, Stephon Castle, Julian Champagnie, Sidy Cissoko, Harrison Ingram.

Small forward is likely the Spurs' deepest position, but fourth-overall pick Stephon Castle will possibly get the start here at small forward given his size and ability to defend wings. There may be some shooting issues involved with starting him, but replacing Jones with Paul gives the Spurs more spacing.

Moreover, Wembanyama should get better looks from the outside, increasing his efficiency and giving the Spurs at least three shooters, with Castle hopefully able to find ways to contribute on that end of the floor.

Keldon Johnson could continue to come off the bench and help lead the second unit while also giving him more opportunities to score. Rounding out the rotation are Julian Champagnie, Sidy Cissoko, and rookie Harrison Ingram, giving the Spurs plenty of depth and versatility.
