2022 NBA Draft: Why Arizona’s Bennedict Mathurin Would Be Ideal San Antonio Spurs Pick

The San Antonio Spurs have struggled to find a starting caliber big man in the NBA draft for the past several years.

The team’s most recent attempt to rectify that issue appears to be USC’s second-round pick of Chimezie Metu in 2017, though the high-flying 6-11 forward never quite showed the potential to get back into the basket before he was waived by Spurs in Nov. 2020.

The team has focused on guard when drafting in recent years, leading to fans begging for a different approach in hopes of getting a solid big man. Three first-round picks in the hands of general manager Brian Wright can certainly lead to that, right?
