Speculation surrounding a trade for San Antonio Spurs center Jakob Poeltl has been something to keep an eye on this offseason, especially as the team begins a formal rebuild.
Trade ideas tend to trickle in this time of year. And while Poletti’s future in San Antonio is uncertain, it's an interesting thought to see what the Spurs could get in return for him before next year or the mid-season trade deadline.
With the Spurs looking to age, dealing Poeltl for emerging talent and draft stock could help secure a better future for what could be his highest value by trading the Austrian center.
Bleacher Report has revealed a scenario that would give the Spurs exactly what they are looking for by sending Poletti to the Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors may feel that giving up a young player like Wiseman and taking two future draft picks could be risky given his potential and versatility.
Golden State used the No. 2 overall pick on him in 2020 for a reason. And despite his early injury woes, Wiseman is finally getting back on the court and may not be on the trading block for the Warriors at this point.
But in a hypothetical scenario if he were to come to Spurs, Wiseman would become one of the primary players in the rebuild, a process that will only get more exciting with his arrival.
In 39 career games with Golden State, the 21-year-old 7-footer has shown All-Star level potential, something he can reach as he continues to develop into NBA form.
He has averaged 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds on 51.9 percent shooting from the floor so far in his career.
