SAN ANTONIO — The Spurs ultimately made a deal with the Bulls trading DeMar DeRozan for Thaddeus Young, Al-Farouq Aminu, a protected first-round draft pick, and two second-round draft picks.
But things could have been a lot different if the Spurs took the Lakers' offer.
According to The Athletic, the Lakers reportedly offered the Spurs Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope but nothing came to fruition.
This is a great "What if?" scenario as the new season inches closer.
Would Kuzma (career scoring average at 15.2 points per game) be inserted into the starting unit and how well would he have meshed with the current young core?
Caldwell-Pope would have added a veteran presence but he would have dipped into minutes that some of the younger players need.
Also, could the Spurs have used Kuzma as a trade asset to either stockpile draft picks or bring in bigger star power?
What do you say Spurs fans? Would you have liked to see this trade happen?
