Zach Lowe: I’ve also heard that people are calling the Spurs and trying to see if they can get Derrick white or even Dejounte Murray
More Rumors in this Storyline
Brian Windhorst on Dejounte Murray: There’s been some chatter in the league about whether the Spurs would be willing to trade him. Maybe not during the season but next summer.
San Antonio was open to discussing Dejounte Murray and Lonnie Walker IV before the draft, sources said, and the Spurs added more enticing future draft capital in their sign-and-trade that delivered DeMar DeRozan to Chicago. Could the starting points of that package be enough to truly intrigue Philly? Portland’s eventual interest, as always, would factor heavily into any further discussions, too.
Do you expect a trade here? While it seems unlikely the Spurs would move their pick, keep an eye on them being active with the trade machine around the draft. The Spurs have to figure out where they want to be as a franchise and what their plan is moving forward. They’re kind of stuck in the middle right now. Murray and Derrick White could both be gettable, according to league sources.

On the daily Locked On Spurs podcast, host Jeff Garcia and a panel of Spurs media members discussed the state of the Spurs and if anyone on the roster is untouchable in trade talks. Jeff Garcia: Are any of the Spurs on this current roster untouchable? As by way of trade? Why are we not explain? Casey Viera: If anything, I think one can make the argument that they should put out feelers for every single guy on the roster. You can make that argument because I have a very strong definition of untouchable. I associate untouchable to maybe a 10 to 15 player in the league. That’s probably even generous, maybe the top 10 players in the league you call untouchable. Who on the roster right now resembles that of a top 10 player? Who in that roster represents a pretty good player that can be in the league for a little while? There are several guys on the team, Dejounte Murray, Derrick White of course is the obvious candidate here.
The Spurs are 21-26, which puts them 2.5 games back from the playoffs and only 3.5 games from from top-10 lottery odds. League executives wonder if they’ll choose to break up their crowded roster. Older players like DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge are still effective but are blocking younger players from earning more minutes. Dejounte Murray isn’t available, but there are four other players I’d be targeting in trades.
But who do you think is considered valued highest/untouchable and who do you think is likely to be traded? Jabari Young: Think right now, Derrick and Dejounte are the only untouchables. And if someone offers a nice deal for Bertans, I think Spurs will bite.
