"I probably say Devin [Vassell]. I think Keldon [Johnson] took a big step last year and I think he's going to take another step this year but I think people are going to get to see what Devin can do a little bit more this year," Richardson said. "With the ball in his hands and seeing how much of a versatile game he has."


"Josh Primo, obviously, he's had a huge summer," McDermott said. "He going to be ready to go. I think it's going to be a huge year for him. His body looks great. He looks a lot more confident."

"And then Tre [Jones] the same goes for him," added McDermott. "He's seeing the floor really well and he's not hesitating on shooting the threes."

The Spurs will get their 2022 preseason slate started Sunday versus the Houston Rockets.
