Spurscast: How Would Trades Work This Offseason?

Spurscast: Jakob Poeltl Trade Rumor

In Spurscast episode 657, Spurscast host Paul Garcia discusses: 

  • How trades would work with the Spurs’ first round picks
  • How a sign-and-trade deal would work with Lonnie Walker IV
  • How trades would work with players on non-guaranteed deals
  • How trades would work with players on guaranteed deals

How do trades work with draft picks?

The San Antonio Spurs will have four draft picks in the June draft: the 9th pick, the 20th pick, the 25th pick, and the 38th pick in the second round.

In the episode, you’ll hear how the Spurs would be able to trade these picks either before or after the draft, and what the cap hold amount for each pick means in the different trade scenarios.

How would a sign-and-trade deal work with Lonnie Walker IV?

In the event Lonnie Walker IV wanted to move on from San Antonio this summer in free agency, rather than sign an offer sheet with another team, another way Walker IV could end up on a new team is if he, the Spurs, and the new team worked on a sign-and-trade deal together.

How do trades work involving the players on non-guaranteed players?

This offseason, Zach Collins, Keita Bates-Diop, Tre Jones, and Jock Landale are all on non-guaranteed deals. The way their deals would work in a trade are discussed in the episode.

The players on guaranteed deals

While there’s no reporting the Spurs are looking to move any of the players on guaranteed deals, the scenario is explored in the episode in the event the Spurs were to move a player via trade on a guaranteed deal.
