Christian Wood deserves to be the San Antonio Spurs number one target
It’s hard to overstate how important this offseason is going to be for the San Antonio Spurs. With their highest draft pick in decades, a few key free-agent decisions, and a young core that’s hungry for more opportunity, the San Antonio Spurs are going to have to nail these next few months if they want to start another run of success.
Not to diminish the importance of the NBA draft but the Spurs track record over the past five years is a strong indicator of the organization’s ability to identify talent wherever they are in the draft. If they can grab players like Dejounte Murray, Derrick White, and Keldon Johnson at pick 29 just imagine what they can do with the 11th pick.
No, the San Antonio Spurs are going to have to make some crucial decisions in free agency and the trade market if they want to come out of 2020 offseason as winners. That means figuring out what to do with DeMar DeRozan should he pick up his player option, as well as addressing the impending unrestricted free agencies of Marco Belinelli and Bryn Forbes. But it could also include bringing in some talent to help the Spurs prepare for the future.
There isn’t a ton of star talent out on the free-agent market this offseason but Christian Wood could be approaching that tier. He’s coming off of a breakout season and deserves to be the San Antonio Spurs number one free agent target this offseason.
