The San Antonio Spurs Are The Biggest Winners Of The NBA Draft Lottery For A Second Consecutive Year


The San Antonio Spurs have once again emerged as the biggest winners of the NBA Draft Lottery, marking a repeat of their previous year’s success. The Spurs are now able to continue to build a formidable team for the future.

Despite not securing the coveted No. 1 pick, the Spurs walked away with a great outcome from the lottery. They will officially have picks No. 4 and No. 8 in the upcoming 2024 NBA Draft. The No. 8 pick came via the Toronto Raptors, a result of a protected pick trade involving Jakob Poeltl. If the Raptors’ pick had landed between No. 7 and No. 14, it would go to the Spurs, and that’s exactly what happened.

Spurs General Manager, Brian Wright, expressed the team’s excitement and readiness to explore all options.


“Two lottery picks give us a great opportunity to add two young players to our young core or also see what else is out there,” said Wright.


This flexibility allows the Spurs to either draft two potential stars or trade for immediate impact players.

The Spurs have the opportunity to surround Victor Wembanyama, the 2024 NBA Rookie of the Year, with fresh talent. The two lottery picks provide them with the chance to draft players who can complement Wembanyama’s skills and contribute to the team’s growth. Moreover, having two picks in the lottery means the Spurs can secure young talent on rookie scale contracts, which are more cost-effective than a single higher pick.

One of the most critical needs for the Spurs is a point guard who can lead the team into the future. With their current draft positions, they have a variety of options to choose from. The Spurs’ strategy in the draft could very well define their trajectory for years to come.

Whether they choose to draft young talent or trade for established players, the Spurs are poised for an exciting rebuild that could see them return to the pinnacle of NBA success.
