San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs may not be in the market for Chris Paul, given his age. But as long as Gregg Popovich is in town, the Spurs will believe they can field a contending team.

And for the first time in 22 years, the Spurs missed the playoffs. Is San Antonio simply going to keep the same core?

Or would the Spurs make a move for a veteran such as Paul, who is looking for a chance at a deep playoff run?

Both Paul and the Spurs will be motivated next season, and this could make them a good match if Oklahoma City makes him available.
