After missing the playoffs for the first time since the 1996-97 season, the San Antonio Spurs have some major decisions to make as an organization. Both LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan are set to be free agents at the conclusion of the 2020-21 NBA season.

If the Spurs are going to move on from their aging veterans and rebuild their roster a little bit, then they need to find trade partners for these two to get some draft assets and young talent out of it.

Both LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan can still play at a high-level and should be viewed as valuable veterans around the league. As a result, the Spurs could get a valuable package of draft picks and young talent in exchange for Aldridge.

He has missed some time this season due to a lingering hip issue, but the 7x All-Star is still averaging 13.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and shooting 36% from three-point range, making him a potential key veteran target for many championship caliber teams.

The 35-year old forward has been one of the most reliable players at the power-forward position in NBA history and is one of the best mid-range players in the NBA. He has not averaged less than 17.0 points per game since his rookie season in 2006-07 and has not missed many games over the years.

There has been no word on if the Spurs will look to trade any of their veteran talents at the NBA trade deadline but if they do make Aldridge available in trade talks, here are three trade scenarios the Spurs should consider for the potential Hall-of-Fame forward.
