The San Antonio Spurs, for the first time in what seems like forever, are in a rebuilding phase. They have some interesting young pieces such as Keldon Johnson and Lonnie Walker. Still, it never hurts to load up on good wings, and Vassell is clearly the best player currently left on the board.

The Spurs need to do everything in their power to find new teams for both LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan. While both players are undoubtedly talented, neither fit the timeline of the rest of the roster and they are simply not enough to carry the Spurs to another Western Conference playoff berth.

Devin Vassell is not going to change those misfortunes, but he will provide good shooting on top of high-level defense. He can play either the shooting guard or small forward spot and is not reliant on other players to fit into any particular roster. Vassell works on any team, especially one that has an established playmaker (in this case, Dejonte Murray).

There are a lot of teams that are making a playoff push in 2020-21. The Spurs have an opportunity to rebuild when not many teams are looking to do so. If at all possible, they should consider doing so.
