No. 15: Kawhi Leonard, SF San Diego State (traded from Indiana Pacers)
Leonard's fall out of the lottery only lasted a single pick, and his ability to contribute immediately for the team represents monumental value with this pick.
He is another prospect with a freakish wingspan, he is an absolutely raw athlete and has the biggest hands of anyone in the class. He's relentless on both ends of the floor and plays solid defense despite standing just 6'7".
He does the little things well and has a high basketball IQ, so he should bring solid energy off of the bench and provide a nice weapon for the Spurs for the next several seasons as they transition toward a new era of basketball in San Antonio.
No. 29: Cory Joseph, PG Texas
Joseph is another player who could have really benefited from staying in school for another season or two, but clearly the Spurs saw enough to select him in the first round.
The combo guard was not projected to go until the second round, but the Spurs rarely make a mistake on draft day, so they must have seen a special player they could develop in the coming seasons.
After trading George Hill to land Leonard, Joseph may very well serve as the primary backup to veteran point guard Tony Parker.
No. 42: Davis Bertans, PF Latvia
The draft just wouldn't be complete without the Spurs acquiring a European prospect, and this kid is no ordinary talent.
He'll stay in Europe for the next two or three seasons, but he was a high school All-American and could provide a major return for the Spurs when he's ready to come stateside.
No. 59: Adam Hanga, SG Hungary
Hanga is a solid developmental pick and could develop in two-to-three seasons, but he's not a lock to ever play for the team.
He's got definite skill, but the stark differential in terms of competitiveness between what he's used to and the play on the NBA level may be too great.
