Although the San Antonio Spurs didn’t do a whole lot in free agency, addition by subtraction and high-quality deals made up a solid offseason.

A modest approach to the offseason is what we all should’ve expected from the San Antonio Spurs organization. The front office isn’t quite ready to blow it up because the team missed out on the postseason for the first time since the turn of the century. While there’s certainly plenty of movement around the league which the Spurs could’ve gotten in on, it’s nothing to panic over.

With solid re-signings and a strong core in place, San Antonio looks to play out the next season and assess their group as they go. My inclination is that DeRozan and Aldridge will be hot names around the trade deadline for teams hoping to hit another level in their progression. Any team on the cusp of title contention would be happy to have DeRozan or Aldridge for the right price; now it’s a matter of determining what the Spurs’ price will be.

There’s really not enough information on Josh Reynolds to make a judgment call. The San Antonio Spurs are taking a flier on someone who showed promise as a microwave scorer and volume shooter in the G League, inviting him to training camp on an Exhibit-10 deal. We’ll see what comes of it, but bringing another potential firestarter who can drain threes is never a bad idea.

Let’s see how the rest of their transactions played out in the 2020 NBA free agency period.
