First post of a series I’m thinking of doing covering how the offseason is looking for teams. Going to start with teams already eliminated and then will move onto others as they’re eliminated from the post-season.

Salary Cap

Projected Cap Space with Cap Holds: $1,395,036

Maximum Cap Space without Cap Holds/Decline Options:$34,402,118

Cap Holds:

  • Cedi Osman - $12,635,000
  • Sandro Mamukelashvili - $2,524,633
  • Gorgui Dieng - $2,093,637
  • Dominick Barlow - $2,067,722
  • David Duke Jr. - $1,867,722

2024 Draft Picks

1st Round

  • Own Pick
  • Toronto (If not in top 6)

2nd Round

  • Own Pick
  • Lakers

Will be interesting to see what the Spurs do next season. Wemby had a great first year and if he continues to improve they might not lose enough to get a great draft pick next season but still feels too early to try and bring someone in via cap space or trade to shoot for the playoffs. They’ll also have to decide by 7/1 if they want to fully guarantee Graham’s contract ($2.85M vs $12.65M).

    Yeah the narrative is that Spurs need to rush to put a winning team around Wemby but I think that’s an overreaction, and SAS is the organisation that you know is going to stick to the plan. It’s frustrating that this draft is so weak, but if there’s any hidden gold in there SAS have a great record of finding it.

      Yeah that’s a good point, the Spurs still could end up with someone good even if they’re not picking as high as Wemby improves. So definitely think they’ll just stick to the plan and not rush anything.

    Spurs are now in the second year of the OKC-style tank-and-bake.

    They’ll do 25-40 wins next year, and either make play-ins or edge case. Then “arrive” a la Thunder this year for 2025-2026.
