The San Antonio Spurs' players may be preparing for Game 7 of the NBA Finals, but the front office is giving some attention to next week's NBA draft.
San Antonio has been one of the best teams drafting players based on scheme rather than taking best available talent. The Spurs wanted now-defensive star Kawhi Leonard, so fan-favorite and blossoming point guard George Hill was traded to acquire Leonard on draft day in 2011. Fast forward to today, and Leonard's impact is clearly evident in this year's finals.
Head coach Gregg Popovich may not be coaching the team for many more seasons, but it is a safe bet that Pop wants specific players with certain mindsets on his squad while he is in charge.
Although San Antonio does not pick until very late in the first round, a bevy of talent will still be available when the team is officially on the clock.
