The San Antonio Spurs have a lot of decisions to make in the coming months as they enter the next phase of their plans to re-establish the winning culture the organization was known for during the Duncan era. While Tim Duncan is enjoying retirement as a first-ballot hall-of-famer, Victor Wembanyama steps in as the new franchise foundation.

The face of the Lone Star State's winningest basketball team is not the only thing different about the new-age Spurs. In the past, players generally played and let the front office make decisions. In the current NBA, stars are more involved than ever, having no issue expressing their desires for roster construction. Transparency combined with collaboration only serves to ensure everyone in the organization is aligned from top to bottom, and Wembanyama is the latest to adopt this mindset.

The Spurs are setting the foundation for Wembanyama to thrive

There has been too much talk this season, both from the national media and from fans still hurt by the Kawhi saga, fueling the notion that Wembanyama would lose his patience, leading to a trade demand. All of the evidence coming out of the organization and comments made by Wembanyama himself suggest otherwise. San Antonio is establishing a relationship of trust, ensuring Victor feels included in the direction of the franchise.

Besides an extended track record of winning, the Spurs have a long history of making smart decisions. They do not overreact to the market, nor do they make rash judgments. They are thorough. Combining the intellect, savvy, and experience of the front office with Victor Wembanyama's basketball intelligence, drive, and clarity will do wonders for the sustained success of 2-1-0's finest.
