The Detroit Pistons reportedly recently that they made all of their guys available for trade. With the Pistons and Hawks engaging to trade Andre Drummond but the Hawks declines the trade idea. The Pistons are ready to rebuild whoever will remain into their roster. With Andre Drummond or nothing, they will move on.
Enter the Spurs who really need to upgrade their rotation. Currently fighting on eight seeds as they looking for somebody to help. With the perfect guys, they can really make a hell of a run in the postseason. A guy who consistently put good numbers. Spurs can really make a pitch as GM Brian Grant is a former Pistons.
The San Antonio Spurs can really acquire the type of Luke Kennard for either Demarre Carrol, Marco Belinelli or Bryn Bryn Forbes together with a pick. Kennard is a good shooter who shoots 40% from the three. As he also scores well and can create for himself scoring almost 16 per game. He’s still on his rookie contract which is right for the San Antonio. Luke Kennard is a slightly better defender which had a positive impact on the court. Another thing of beauty about him is being such a good passer. This season he is having a career-high with 4 per game. With Kennard, the Spurs will be a top team from the arc. He’s an easy target for DeRozan where to find him. He can start or come off the bench to spark the offensive attack.
Tony Snell could be one of the best available alternatives. A former first-round pick of the Chicago Bulls back in 2013 became a journeyman. He is a talented kid with good potential for the right team. Tony Snell is a 3 and D guy who can light up from the arc. On his seven-year career, he shoots 38% from the rainbow, he’s enjoying a 42% this season. With a forward position, Spurs can at least get DeMar DeRozan back to a small guard. With Snell, he can help cover DeRozan’s weakness. The versatility to guard multiple positions is just a bonus. This is why he gets paid in Milwaukee Bucks doing the dirty job and shoots three. He can start at three or play as a backup.
Spurs had another option also with a cheaper Bruce Brown Brown a shooting guard. He made his first season with the NBA G League. Now he’s thriving on his best averaging 9 points, 4 boards, and 4 assists. Brown is not one of the prolific scorers but he can make it into his own. He can perfectly be suited as a back up for Lonnie Walker IV. A good pick up with the cheapest contract.
One of these guys can really help the Spurs. They prove they can play on their role. Trying to get one of them isn’t a bad idea.
