HoopsHabit's Cal Durrett believes the San Antonio Spurs' point guard problem could be solved by the acquisition of former Boston Celtics Sixth Man of the Year and current Portland Trail Blazers veteran Malcolm Brogdon.

"If the Blazers agreed to that deal, it would ensure that the Spurs wouldn't have the same lack of playmaking next season that they have this season," Durrett said of a mock trade that'd send Doug McDermott, Cedi Osman, the Atlanta Hawks' 2025 first-round pick, and two future second-rounders (2024 via Los Angeles Lakers, 2028 via Minnesota Timberwolves). "That is also doubly important since they may draft a point guard and between that, Brogdon, and Jones, they will have far more options and players who can handle the ball."

Brogdon was part of the Jrue Holiday trade; one that saw the Cs also send Robert Williams III, and two future first-round picks to Portland. Without a doubt, that was the right move to make considering Holiday's surprising contributions on the block and veteran leadership. Soon enough, that championship experience he brought from his time with the Milwaukee Bucks should pay off as well.

Victor Wembanyama deserves point guard like former Boston Celtics point guard Malcolm Brogdon

On the subject of winning, Brogdon's prospective landing spot, San Antonio, haven't been doing much of it in the past two seasons since trading away Derrick White and Dejounte Murray. Victor Wembanyama deserves better in his first season than experimental lineups with Jeremy Sochan running the offense.

Brogdon is the sort of veteran leader, not a championship leader but one who's accustomed to winning and being a primary reason why, who could help move the Spurs in the right direction again, It's weird talking about a Gregg Popovich-coached team this way, but Wembanyama hasn't gotten the best supporting cast in Year 1 thus far.
