Trade deadline week for the Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs made three trades during trade deadline week and the Spurs ended up with one first round pick and seven second round picks when the trade deadline ended.

Tuesday – The Spurs acquired Dewayne Dedmon and a future second round pick from the Miami Heat for cash considerations. The Spurs waived Dedmon on Thursday.

Thursday – The Spurs traded Jakob Poeltl to the Toronto Raptors for Khem Birch, a protected 2024 first round pick and two future second round picks.

The Spurs also traded Josh Richardson to New Orleans Thursday for Devonte’ Graham and four future second round picks. The reason the Spurs came away with four second picks is because they took on Graham’s contract, who had two years left on his deal.

Where the roster stands

The Spurs now have 14 players on guaranteed deals and two players on two-way deals. The Spurs have one roster spot available. The team has 27 games remaining this season while they’re dealing with injuries to multiple players.

The Spurs through 55 games
