One NBA writer is proposing that the San Antonio Spurs acquire Michael Porter Jr. from the Denver Nuggets in a blockbuster trade. Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report proposed the following trade idea between the Spurs and Nuggets:

The Trade: Spurs trade Devonte’ Graham, Doug McDermott, Reggie Bullock and a 2024 first-round pick (top-six protected, via TOR) to Nuggets for Michael Porter Jr.

“With generational prospect Victor Wembanyama in the fold and about a million draft picks to their name, the Spurs should see limitless opportunities in front of them,” Buckley wrote in his latest NBA trade column. “They will probably keep patient for now until they see how quickly the No. 1 pick can ascend to stardom, but if they see signs of that launch being imminent, they should be on the lookout for long-term building blocks to slot around the 19-year-old.

“Porter would be a fun target, especially if San Antonio thinks it could help the 25-year-old grow his game.He needs plenty of work with his distributing and defensive consistency, but the outline of a 6’10”, three-level scorer is very much visible. Fit him in a nucleus with Wembanyama, Jeremy Sochan and Devin Vassell, and that’s a group with endless size, enviable length and just about every skill in the book.”
